The second Rapha Hell of the North, a 100km ride in homage to Paris-Roubaix, will take place on Sunday April 10.
Ridden on the same day as the Queen of the Classics, the Rapha ride swaps the infamous pavé of north France for 20 sectors of north London gravé – defined as an area of farm track/road/footpath/bridleway which consists of gravel, potholes, loose paving, rubble and mud.
The event, which RCUK rode last year, is free to enter, with 250 places available, and there will be Belgian-style hospitality at the finish, plus the chance to watch the pros race with live coverage of Paris-Roubaix, accompanied by beer and frites.
The ride kicks off from Pond Square, Highgate, N6 at 9am, and will finish at the Black Horse Pub, Wood Street, EN5.
