The best format for first-time participants

Our 3-day events are the ideal format for first-time participants! A long weekend packed with incredible rides and superior services; the 3-day format is the best way to get into multi-day cycling.

Whether you want to achieve an overall finish, take on a challenge, enjoy the scenery or all three, you'll go home with a strong sense of achievement.

As some of our 3-day events feature less elevation and fewer kilometres, they make a great introduction to the Haute Roue before stepping it up with a 5- or 7-day event.
