Rat Race: The Crossing – three weeks to go!

Multi-day coast-to-coast expedition

Rat Race The Crossing is the UK's only mountain bike expedition event

Mountain bikers, listen up. If you’re looking to step up your riding this year then why not give yourself something to aim for? The teams at Rat Race and BikeRadar are here to help with an altogether unique challenge – the UK’s only mountain bike expedition event. 


The Crossing is a 190-mile (310km) coast-to-coast journey from the Cumbrian coast to Scarborough. Participants will need to navigate the tracks and trails of the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors during the fully serviced event. You’ll not only get to sample some of the UK’s best mountain biking but will also venture through jaw-dropping scenery during what’s set to be an unforgettable ride.

The Crossing takes place between 11 and 13 July, so there’s still time to get training and encourage your friends to get involved too.
