Need an excuse to emerge from your wintertime chrysalis? Check out Albion Cycling and komoot‘s 12HoursOfMay campaign. You can win prizes and more all from doing what you’d be doing normally this time of year: riding your bike! Check out all the details below…
A cycling challenge that celebrates longer days, the hope of springtime and exploration closer to home. Open to anyone on two or three wheels, and willing to spend 12 hours outdoors in one go.
The idea is simple. Albion wants to promote going outdoors and wants to enables you to stay out longer. 12 hours outside is longer for most. So get ready for a new 12 hour adventure happening for you somewhere this May. Plot a route on komoot and stay outside for 12 hours. It doesn’t even have to be riding time. You could stay in the saddle for 12 hours straight, or for just a few hours before finding a place to sleep and pedalling back home in the morning.
For those unfamiliar with komoot, it offers the chance to showcase your photography, mapping prowess and words to build a story around your ride. We want to hear about your 12 hour attempts and komoot is the perfect tool to share all the cool shots, back alleys, and highlights of your ride.

It can be longer, but there’s no extra merit.

Use any restrictions in place to form the idea behind your route.
