Sadly this event has had to be cancelled for 2020.

The Chester and North Wales CTC Veterans 100 is a well-established event which challenges riders aged 50 years and above to cycle our traditional and mostly flat 100mile course at a sociable pace. Riders are in small groups allocated by the organiser with a ride leader. It is not a sportive.
There is a staggered start with riders setting off in small groups with a ride leader. This helps to prevent bunching of large numbers of riders on the road and spreads arrival at refreshment stops. Those who wish to ride more slowly start earliest, with the aim of all returning to Duddon in time for the presentation of certificates which usually takes place at 6.45pm
Please let us know if there is someone you particularly wish to ride with (tandem riders-please indicate this and give name of partner). Most groups will aim to average about 12 mph for the day, however we would ask you to estimate the average riding speed you would be comfortable at so that we can try to match riders to suitable groups (between 11 and 14mph). Please will you also advise us if you intend to participate on an ebike. Each group is to be led by an experienced ride leader.
Tea/coffee and biscuits are available at the start and finish of the event. There is a morning tea/coffee & food stop, a lunch stop halfway round, and a stop in the afternoon for sandwiches, tea, cake etc. All of the stops are at halls with toilet facilities.
We welcome all cyclists aged 50years and over on the 1st of March 2020 to this event. You do not have to be a member of Cycling UK although we encourage you to join our national organisation www.cyclinguk.org.uk.
