You’ve Seen the Film | Now Ride the Route

Maybe you haven't seen the film yet? Santa Cruz Bicycles launched this masterpiece last week.



Just a quick one really, to remind you that there’s nothing wrong with racing but...

if you personally prefer to be free of the stresses brought about by performing for the clock;
if you want a week-long ride through the Alps to the Mediterranean, but prefer the freedom to savour the incredible trails and to take in more views, more culture (and perhaps take in more substances which may be detrimental to your outright sporting performance...!)
if you would like this adventure's supporting logistics, lodgings and meals taken care of by experienced hands then Stone King Club Week is the one for you and it will happen exactly THREE times in 2023.

SKCW 2023 will be an all-inclusive package, with limited entries available.

I obviously get pretty excited about the Stone King race but the Club Weeks?! Well I actually get to ride them with you! Hope to see you there and shred a load of great trails together.
