What can I expect from your accommodation?
Our accommodation will be on a bed and breakfast basis in a 3 or 4* hotel, picked for its proximity to our routes and provided by our travel partner Travel Counsellors. The accommodation price is based on two people sharing a room. If you are travelling on your own don’t worry, Travel Counsellors will pair you up with somebody in a similar position. You can also opt for a single room, but this will incur a supplementary charge at the cost charged by the hotel at the time of booking.
What food is included and does it cater for all diets?
Breakfast will be provided at the hotel. There will be two designated water stops available on each ride day too, which will give you the opportunity to refill your water bottles and get access to snacks. In addition, you are welcome to bring your own individual snacks, which the Crew will hold on to and make available at each stop on your behalf.
Please note: lunches and evening meals are not included.
What’s unique about Chapeau…why should I choose you?
Our events are tailored to you…our team have physically driven and assessed every mile of the route to ensure the safest and best possible route for your challenge, so rest assured you are in the safest hands. All our routes are specifically tailored with you in mind.
How fit do I need to be?
Chapeau events attract people of all levels of experience and fitness, all ages and backgrounds. We expect all participants to train hard in advance to achieve this challenge, but we respect everyone’s limits. You will be in the saddle for upward of 60 miles a day for 3 consecutive days, so you should ensure, as a minimum that you are comfortable riding a 50 mile day and have achieved this regularly before you leave for the trip. The profile will contain some hills, so please include some hills in your training. This event has a difficulty rating of 4 out of 8, which Chapeau rate as average difficulty – a regular balance of undulating terrain with some difficult descends/ascents. You will need confidence in your fitness and technical ability is crucial for this event. We design our challenges so that everyone can go at their own pace; this is not a race.

Who will be there to support me during the event?
Your trip will be led by experienced Chapeau Events crew. Our crew are selected for their experience in cycling events around the world, their friendliness and approach-ability, sense of humour and ability to safely and effectively deal with any situation that arises. Our crew leaders are also trained in outdoor first-aid. You are in very safe hands with the Chapeau Events crew.
The number of crew and support vehicles looking after you will depend on the final size of the group, but the team will be looking after every aspect of your trip whether that’s transporting your luggage, sorting out any mechanical problems or giving you a lift in our back vehicle – our “Love bus”.
