GET FIRED UP FOR THE CHRISTMAS PUDDING RIDE!

Synonymous with Christmas, the VC Venta Christmas Pudding Ride is set for Saturday 19th December 2020.

The Christmas Pudding Ride is a cycling Time Trial that anyone can win! It’s not about speed – just your ability to predict your time for the course. You simply register your estimated course time and then ride without a timing device – that means no watch, speedometer, phone, GPS etc.

The person, or team, nearest their predicted time wins a Christmas pudding, and plenty of kudos!

Registration Form
  • You can race on your own, in pairs (2up or tandem), but you need to come from the same household or support bubble
  • First prize is a Christmas Pudding! It goes to the person or team closest to their estimated time
  • Christmas fancy dress is not compulsory (and not a performance enhancer) but is encouraged!

Categories to be included as an option on the form are as follows:

  • Male
  • Female
  • Junior (U16)
  • 2up TT
  • Tandem
