Unfortunately due to COVID _19 regulations we have sadly had to cancel our Big Fat Bike Ride 2021. Instead, we have decided to run a free virtual event for the whole FLAB community, the Big Fat Bike Ride is going On T' Road.
The Big Fat Bike Ride On T’ Road is a virtual event that brings the sportive to your doorstep. Those who want to get involved are encouraged to ride their chosen distance on their local roads. These will not be led rides, they are simply a group of FLAB’s getting together to ride, eat cake and have a fun day out on their bikes.
The event will take place on Saturday 22nd May, when all restrictions are scheduled to be lifted. Any changes to this will be communicated via our social media channels and email.
