With it’s space-age, double-decker handlebar, the Canyon Grail is one of the standout bikes of 2018 and the German brand is giving you the chance to win a Grail worth £1,999 in its #GoFindIt Gravel Hunt.

The event, set to take place on Saturday September 8, will see riders embark on a Grail-inspired gravel ride in search of a golden chalice. While a guided group will leave Rapha’s Manchester clubhouse at 10:30am, a map will be sent to riders beforehand and the first clue will be sent out at 10am.

Riders can take part on any bike they like but the person who finds the chalice first will ride home on Shimano 105-equipped Grail CF SL 7.0. The Grail was launched in March as Canyon's first dedicated gravel bike and combines the comfort-enhancing Hover cockpit with a carbon frame, mountain bike-inspired geometry and generous tyre clearance.

The #GoFindIt Gravel Hunt is part of a weekend of events held by Canyon in Manchester. The brand’s road, gravel and cyclo-cross bikes will be on display at the Rapha clubhouse throughout the weekend (September 7-9), while a 40km ride with Canyon-Eisberg pros will take place on the Friday.

Meanwhile, a Tour of Britain party will take place on the Sunday, with the chance to win signed jerseys from Movistar, Katusha and Canyon-Eisberg while watching the final stage of the race on television.

All three events are free to attend but riders must sign-up in advance to either of the rides. For more details, head to the Canyon x Rapha Manchester event page on Facebook.
