A date change, some exciting news and an unmissable offer!!

Just a short post this week guys, to keep you updated on the latest from Red Kite Events. There's been an event date change and a couple of announcements, which are very exciting!!

The date change is for the Elan Valley Challenge. The event has moved from the 9th June to be held instead on the 23rd June. The routes all remain the same, and the rides will be just as challenging, so come along for some great biking and an awesome day out! We've just added an extra route to the MTB event - 130km!! Please bear in mind this will be seriously tough ride, with just over 4100 metres of climbing overall. Only accept the challenge if you're seriously fit and really up for it...

A special offer for the Sportive rides is currently being offered - enter both the Elan Valley Sportive and The Shropshire Devil Sportive events for just £45. That's a saving of at least £10, if you're choosing the shortest routes, or more if you're entering any of the longer routes. So sign up now to get this great deal - if you can handle 2 sportives over 2 weekends...

Red Kite Events is also pleased to announce that the Summer Evening XC Series are returning, with the first ride taking place on the 26th May at Mansel Lacy (7 miles north west of Hereford). The series are a British Cycling Regional B Ranking Points Race and these points can be banked over the series. The course is excellent, at a great venue, and extremely well organised with catering onsite, hard standing parking and computerised timing. The race is supported by British Cycling and prizes are supplied by our sponsors - Continental Tyres, Nuun Hydration, Mule Bar and Green Oil.

Later in the year, we are also excited to announce the return of the Winter XC Series. This cross-country series will run throughout winter and the course will consist of a mix of forest roads, single tracks and technical trails. Once again, the series will be British Cycling points eligible. All events will be held at Coed Trallwm, near Llanwrtyd Wells, and will take place from October onwards.

For more information on the XC Series, such as how to enter and entry fees, check out our website at You can also find information on all our fantastic Sportive and MTB events that are being held throughout the year, starting with our very next event, the Arrow Sportive on 11th May.
