It's coming! We're not judging if you've over-indulged on your holiday. Just know that we've got your back with this delightful little event!
The Tour de Fox was a raging success this year, following the three weeks of pro riders pedalling around France - so with the Vuelta a Fox we're going to be setting challenges for the three weeks of the Vuelta around Spain. It starts on 25th August, so you'll need to crack on and sign up now.
what is it?
A three week challenge. We will put you into a team with nice people. And together (as well as individually) you'll be displaying your innnate awesomeness to great effect by aiming at these challenges:
How much does it cost?
For your £10 donation, you'll be helping Penny Brohn UK support people with cancer. Not only that, you'll have three whole weeks of fun and frolics, and a wee bit of skulduggery too (because it wouldn't be Fox, otherwise, would it?)
Not joined in a fox event before?
From time to time we run charity events (we focus on local charities so you know where the booty is going) and it's an excuse for you to have even more fun as you get fit and surpass your health goals.
We design events so it's fair for everyone - and we encourage new riders to join in; you'll be supported by nice people, and you'll build your fitness as well as your confidence. Although this is a 'team' event, don't be intimidated - the event is designed to provide a level playing field, teams are small, and you'll get to know the other people in your team. Fox picks the teams because we like to control everything... no, seriously, it works better that way. So all you need to do is sign up - we'll do the rest.
I'm not very fit and I don't know anyone.
The Vuelta is definitely for you. We've designed the challenges to ensure that it's not inevitable that the same people win every time (because that just gets boring). The challenges are all different - there might be one in particular that you want to aim at. We've also added extra features this year just to mix things up a bit and make them more interesting.
We organise the teams so you don't need to worry about it - and it's a great way of getting to know other riders - many of them started out exactly in your position, so they'll be very supportive and encouraging - just as you will be with them.
So who's in? If you miss it, you'll be missed!
