Who can join the tour?

Experience of cycling?
We understand that everyone has differing levels of fitness and experience of cycling long distances. We have therefore designed the tour in such a way that less experienced cyclists, or those who need some rest can be transported by bus at any point during the tour.

Who is the tour aimed at?
The tour is primarily aimed at ESSKA members who want to support the Cycle for Science Initiative, who want to physically challenge themselves and who believe in the mission of ‘Motion is Life’. The tour is however open to non-ESSKA members upon request who are willing to make a donation to the ESSKA Foundation for the Cycle for Science Initiative, in addition to the member-participation fee.



Registration is now fully booked!

If you wish to put your name on the waiting list or if you have and questions, please contact cfs@esska.org

Happy cycling!
