You crazy people, Insanity is back by popular demand! The longest day in the saddle we offer – and you are likely to ever want! Insanity is surely your season defining ride…
Hot fresh food stops, drink stops and attendant mechanical and motivational support for riders wanting to take on Norfolk’s ultimate cycling challenge. Insanity not compulsory… but it helps!
Insanity is part of the unique Pedal Norfolk two day cycling festival set in the stunning Holkham Hall estate in North Norfolk. Expect big open skies, lots of varied scenery and a few lumps giving you over 5,500 feet of elevation during the day.
This is a sunrise to sunset sportive with strictly limited numbers. You must complete the distance in daylight, as a guide an average of 12.5mph will see you complete the challenge in 12 hours excluding feedstops). Those running out of daylight (or energy) can take a signed shortcut or be swept up for a ride home in the broom wagon.
Not often do you get the chance to ride such a challenge with the security of fully inclusive hot and cold food stops, the full support you have come to expect from TPR Events and unique chunky medal and Adnams Beer at the finish.
Insanity is strictly limited to just 200 riders to ensure riders receive our full attention for a top quality season defining day out.
