The People's Grand Tour

Ride, wherever you are

The People’s Grand Tour is coming back in May 2015

After a year or so off, The People’s Grand Tour returns on Saturday, May 9, 2015 with a three-week event that is open to everyone.

What is The People’s Grand Tour?

Back in April 2007, I set out to ride my bike every day for a month and wrote a blog about it for Cycling Weekly. And so The 30-Day Challenge was born.

In 2011, I revived the idea and The People’s Grand Tour was born. In 2012 the event was tweaked so that the event lasted three weeks, just like the Tour de France, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta a España.

The winner of the first People’s Grand Tour in spring 2012 was Steve Trice. Other winners of The People’s Grand Tour have been Darren Woodward and Marco Pinotti.

Here’s how to join The People’s Grand Tour virtual peloton…

How to take part & the rules

  1. The People’s Grand Tour will run from Saturday, May 9 to Sunday, May 31, 2015.

  2. The aim is to ride on as many of those days as you can.

  3. You need to ride on at least 12 of the 23 days to qualify for the overall classification.

  4. You will be able to enter your ride data each day on this website and your totals will be collated for the overall classification.

  5. The winner of The People’s Grand Tour will be the cyclist who rides on the most days. If two or more riders are tied on the same number of days, the cyclist who has covered the most kilometres will be the winner.

  6. The People’s Grand Tour is just for fun.
