Welcome celebrations for the 2019 Cyclists on 5 June

Join us at the entrance of the Tivoli Hotel on Wednesday 5 June, to welcome those taking part in this year's BCO Cycle Challenge, as they arrive from Gothenburg after a gruelling 3 days on their bikes. Register for the conference early and your delegate badge will enable you to enjoy a cold beer with the cyclists.
Meet at the Tivoli Hotel at 15.30. Cyclists are expected to arrive at approximately 15.45. 


Gothenburg to Copenhagen

This year, for the 2019 Conference, the BCO Annual Cycle Challenge will focus entirely on Scandinavia, with a route from Gothenburg to Copenhagen.

Life in Copenhagen is lived in the saddle of a bicycle. With over 350km of dedicated cycle lanes and over 40% of people cycling to work, there are few places in the world that embrace cycling like Copenhagen, making this the perfect way to start the 2019 Conference.

This year’s route will start from Gothenburg, with a ride around the city, before heading south along the stunning west coast of Sweden, where we will enjoy the coastal routes that have won significant acclaim within the cycling community of Europe.

The ride will cover approximately 300 miles over 3 days. Whilst the first day includes some minor elevation around Gothenburg, the overall up-hill cycling for the entire ride is only 2500m, which will please those looking for a flat route, and makes the ride very accessible to a wide-ranging ability of riders.

The ride is fully supported by a professional cycle support company. We ride as a single group or peloton, with the emphasis being on completing the challenge together, whilst networking and socialising with like-minded people from the industry. Nobody gets left behind and stronger riders will be on hand to support at all times.

The true spirit of the BCO ride is about inclusivity, helping one another and making new friends and contacts. If you’re looking to race or cycle at a brisk pace, then perhaps this ride is not for you!

Participants of the Cycle Challenge will need to arrive in Gothenburg on the evening of Sunday 2 June. With the cycling beginning on the morning of Monday 3 June, we will roll into Copenhagen for the conference welcome reception on Wednesday 5 June.

The cost of the Cycle Challenge is £1,200 +VAT and we encourage all riders to raise £500 sponsorship for the conference charity Mind
