We've been working on a new rider medal design for 2020 and we're now pleased to reveal that a rather fab-looking bespoke medal will be waiting at the finish for everyone who completes the 2020 Mendips Lakes and Lumps Ride :)
It's designed to clearly convey the 'lakes & lumps' message and, given that the Ride offers a spectacular & challenging route, the medal will also serve as a permanent reminder of a great achievement AND a great day out.
The route itself isn't overly long (deliberately so, to allow time afterwards for everyone to enjoy a few hours at the outdoor festival too), however a good chunk of the climbing comes in the latter stages so it's definitely a good test and you WILL know that you've well & truly earned your medal when you cross the finish line.
All you need to do to get your hands on one of these is to make sure that you (& maybe a few pals?) get signed up for the Ride (enter below if you haven't done so yet), then get some training in beforehand if you can (the more you can do the easier it will feel), and thereafter it's just a case of going out and enjoying the challenge on the day!
And once you've finished the Ride your medal is also your passport to the main Festival site - simply show it at the entrance and you will be given FREE entry to the site to enjoy the afternoon's activities.
Riders will also be given a token at the finish that can be exchanged for free food within the main site, and showers will be available if required too - all part of the Ride entry, and more good reasons to make a full day of it!
So please do come and join us if you haven't entered already and bring as many friends, colleagues, family, etc with you as you can - and don't forget that there's plenty for non-cyclists to see & do at the festival while you're out earning your medal, so the whole family is welcome and very well catered-for!
So sign up NOW and make sure one of these medals has got YOUR name on it!
