We had so much fun supporting the Human Race triathlons, duathlons and sportives last year, we couldn’t help but get involved again for 2017.

Once again we’ll be travelling around the UK in the Yellow Jersey tour bus, handing out bucket loads of freebies before skiving off work to join in on the riding. Sadly we can’t go to every event, but if you spot us at any of the Human Race cycling events, be sure to come and say Hi.

What’s more, we’ll be doing some competitions over the year at events so keep checking in to find out more!

Not all of the events have confirmed dates yet, but we will update our list of Human Race cycle events as go.
