Do you love riding bikes, on and off road? Do you have some family or friends who share your passion? Team up * and enter the Cornwall AdventureCross! It's a weekend long event with free camping and 100km of beautiful riding.* The event is also open to crazy/friendless solo riders.
The first Cornwall AdventureCross will allow 500 riders to spend the weekend in a family friendly cycling festival atmosphere at our base in the middle of beautiful Cornwall. On arrival, challenge yourself with a 1.5mile prologue time trial on Friday evening so we can award a yellow jersey to one of the more competitive types. Then settle into camp and visit our café in the adjacent leisure centre for the pasta party - an ideal way to fuel-up for the big challenge of a 100km Sportive relay ride on Saturday. The 100km is made up of three equal loops, shared in relay - one loop to each team mate. Many of the off road sections of the 100km ride are on private land and we will electronically time these segments to run a proper stage race, but of course you could just enjoy the Sportive ride and the wonderful views.
Back at base we'll award final winner's yellow jerseys once all those segments have been added on to your times.
Sunday... You want more? Or you want to be entertained instead? How about a proper cyclo-cross race? Yes, we're hosting the opening round of the South West Cyclo-Cross Series around your camp site! There are races for all age categories, and a one hour multi-lap lung buster for the elites. Feel free to enter the racing or just watch the whippet like heroes do their thing while you recover from your own exertions. You can stay and camp Sunday night too if you like.

FREE CAMPING, PROLOGUE TIME TRIAL, SPORTIVE, TIMED SEGMENTS, YELLOW JERSEY, SPOT PRIZES, BRILLIANT SCENARY, GREAT TRAILS, SUNDAY'S RACE

A bit of background...
The steady rise of cyclo-cross bikes over recent years has given many of us the option to mix up serious road rides with cross country challenges. Iconic events like the "Three Peaks Cyclo-Cross" and the "Hell of the North Cotswolds" have long inspired old-skool hard-men, and now the equipment and culture has become accessible to everyone. AdventureCross partner Vin Cox is just one of many adventure cyclists who have used cyclo-cross bikes for long touring challenges. Vin and his Genesis Criox de Fer bike were featured in the 2012 Guinness Book of Records after cycling 18,000 miles around the world. He's also done the 3 Peaks cyclo-cross 10 times, and hosts the Mountain Mayhem 24 hour event too.
