Thomson Tales

Join the Wintertide Rising Challenge


Short days. Questionable weather. Fantastic rewards. CCNS’s infamous cycling challenge returns to tempt you into a week of wintery cycling to see out the year. Join us this year to log more miles in one week than you have ever thought possible.


Sign up the challenge

Participants will have their total hours tracked. Wintertide Rising benchmarks can be met with just ten hours of riding on the road, on the trail, and virtually on Zwift! Simply sign up to the official Strava club and post rides to your your Strava account before 8pm each day for them to count toward that night’s standings update.
