Rapha’s popular ‘Hell of the North’ event returns for a third year on Sunday April 8.
The social event, held to coincide with the Paris-Roubaix WorldTour race, will take riders on a 100km ride through Hertfordshire. A route involving “muddy terrain and bumpy rough stuff”, and with more ‘gravé’ than pavé” is pledged.
The ride will start and finish at a location in north London still to be decided, and will end with ‘Belgian hospitality’ and an opportunity to watch the Queen of the Classics.
Entry is free but is limited to 300 riders and entrants must register online prior to the event.
