Manchester: The Italian Job Cycling Challenge

September 11, 2017 at Prevent Breast Cancer in Manchester.


Join Team Prevent Breast Cancer on the Italian Lakes Cycle Challenge on September 11th-16th 2017.

Challenge yourself up the Colle’s that surround the lake, including the infamous Madonna.

Day 1 – Arrive in Novara:
On arrival in Novara you can check into your hotel and spend your free time exploring the hotel spa and other amenities. You will meet the crew at registration this evening, who will give you details of your first day of cycling. Your bikes will have arrived safely in advance and
will be ready and waiting for you to start your challenge. As participants will be arriving throughout the day and evening, tonight’s evening meal is not included but there are dining facilities at the hotel and in the nearby town.

Day 2 – Novara to Stresa (80 miles):
Heading straight out into the countryside from the hotel, you can warm up your legs along flat, winding, country roads, as we head north towards the lakes and mountains. A long, sweeping downhill run will take you to the first of your Italian Lakes – Lago Orta! Enjoy lake views as you follow its Western shore before climbing up through mountain gorges to your second lake – Lago di Mergozza. Depending on your legs you can choose your afternoon’s route at this stage. Heading out together from lunch to the Nature Reserve ‘Fondo Toce’ you can either follow the route South, along the shore of Lago Maggiore or you can enjoy an afternoon of short, sharp up hills and technical downhills. The two routes meet again in the beautiful town of Verbania, before heading along the lakeshore to Stresa, where you can enjoy a drink and a dip in the pool at your lakeside
Day 3 – Stresa to Como (71 Miles)

This morning you follow the shore of Lago Maggiore. Stop for a coffee in Arona’s cobbled square before heading north along Maggiore’s opposite shore to Angera. Sitting under the gaze of Angera’s impressive hilltop monestary, dangling your feet in the water, you can take a relaxing break before heading across country, where things start to get a bit hillier on your way to

You will cycle past Lago di Monate and Lago Varese on your way to Lago di Lugano and the Swiss border. Shortly after crossing the border you will have lunch, where you can wander down to the lakeside to enjoy your meal. After lunch we continue along the lake shore and back to Italy, enjoying some incredible switchbacks on the descent. Our next destination is Lago Como and the city of Como itself, where you can head up to the rooftop of your hotel to enjoy another well deserved drink and a dip in the pool on the rooftop terrace.

Day 4 – Como to Lovere (86 Miles)
Approximate cycling distance 86 miles. Add 10 miles for The Madonna!

Today is the day you have been training for! Riding out of Como you will start to climb above the eastern edge of Lake Como, affording you the most spectacular views across the water. The smooth tarmac winds and dips along the lakeside and through quaint villages perched on the hillside, taking you all the way into Bellagio, where you will have your first drinks stop at the waters edge and a chance to take coffee in town.

You have another choice at this point today. If the undulations of the last 19 miles have been enough for you, you can continue along the lakeside, where the route flattens out, all the way into Lecco.

Alternatively you can tackle the MADONNA! A cyclists pilgrimage, the Madonna del Ghisallo is named after the patron saint of cycling and climbs 500m at an average gradient of 9% to a chapel and museum (with a cafe) at the top of the hill. For those who take on the challenge, you will be rewarded with an incredible descent over 10 miles, where you will join the main route on
your way to Lecco.
After lunch and the challenges of the morning you will have a long, flat spin out, to cover some distance between Lake Como and Lake Endine to the east. As you reach the last 20 miles you will hit another climb, but will be rewarded with the most incredible views and sweeping switchbacks as you work your way down to Lake Endine and over the last hill to Lake Iseo and your hotel for the night.
Day 5 – Lovere to Verona (91 Miles):

Although today is a flatter route, we still have a fair distance to cover before we cross the finish line in Verona, so after breakfast we get our cleats back on and hit the road! We follow the eastern edge of Lake Iseo, making the best use of the cycle path, to get away from the traffic and enjoy the views over the lake. As we pull away from the lake, we wind our way between the vineyards before reaching our first big hill and our lunch stop. Once over the crest of the hill, we can enjoy the descent, as we make our way to Lake Garda.

Cycling along the lake’s edge, we cross small bridges and ride down cobbled streets, where you can stop for a coffee and watch the world go by. As we hit the final stretch toward Verona you will start to feel the excitement of your journey coming to its climax. We will meet at a holding point and cycle the last few miles together, through the city streets, over the bridges and into the famous Piazza Brà, where you can celebrate with your team at the end of another successful Chapeau ride!

The number of crew and support vehicles looking after you will depend on the final size of your group, but the team will be looking after every aspect of your trip whether that’s transporting your luggage, ensuring your route is well-marked, sorting out any mechanical problems or giving
you a lift in our back vehicle – our “Love bus”.

At Chapeau Events we pride ourselves on our high crew: cyclist ratio and believe it leads to greater trip enjoyment as well as excellent trip safety.

Will I have to carry my kit?

No, your bags will be transported each day from hotel to hotel, so all you will need to carry is what you need for that day’s ride. On reaching our hotels, at the end of each day, you will hand over your bike for safe overnight and collect your luggage. Each morning, you will hand over
your luggage and collect your bike. Obviously space is limited and hard-sided luggage is not suitable, so it is essential that your kit is packed in a soft sailing bag, rucksack or expedition kit-bag.

Manchester: Nice, France Emerald Waterways Liberte August 26 – September 2

August 26, 2017 at Emerald Waterways in Manchester.


Board the Emerald Liberte in Arles, France, to begin your deluxe river cruise for guests ages 13 and up. Set sail for Avignon for a relaxing river cruise and tour some of the city’s top sightseeing destinations, including the magnificent exterior of the Roman Amphitheatre. This massive arena — inspired by the Roman Colosseum — is more than 2,000 years old and was constructed to seat 20,000 spectators. Explore the city’s historic center, strolling cobblestone streets overlooking the medieval Pont Saint-Benezet bridge. Board the ship for a Provence-inspired dinner to the tune of a live chanson musical performance.

Tournon-sur-Rhone — a scenic village characterized by rolling hills and Roman ruins — awaits you on the following day. Guests can choose to join an active biking tour to Glun, a trip of about 4.5 miles (7.3 kilometers), before enjoying an onboard olive-and-cheese tasting.

Continue to Macon to walk down the Heritage Trail and take in sights of Old Saint-Vincent, Soufflot Chapel and the area’s distinctive half-timbered houses. The afternoon is yours to spend as you wish aboard the ship or explore the city’s charming culture, traditional French cuisine and interesting architecture.

Visit Chalon-sur-Saone — the birthplace of photography and home to some of the finest wines in the Burgundy region — and continue to the village of Beaune. Museums, colorful shops and intriguing 15th-century architecture present multiple opportunities to capture the postcard-perfect photograph to commemorate your visit.

The last stop on your French river cruise is Lyon, a city filled with rich history, Renaissance architecture, medieval ruins and much more. Enjoy a guided tour of the city, beginning with a visit to the Basilique Notre-Dame de Fourviere. Roam quaint, cobbled streets and discover Lyon’s fascinating culture as you explore its shops, restaurants and cafes.

What we love:
• The 12th-century Pont Saint-Benezet bridge in Avignon is among the most famous in the world and attracts approximately 400,000 visitors every year.
• Lyon is a UNESCO World Heritage site and features top attractions such as the Lyon Cathedral, Basilica of Saint-Martin d’Ainay, Ancient Theatre of Fourviere and the Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls.
• The Emerald Liberte is custom-built to sail the waters of the Rhone and Saone rivers, offering a one-of-a-kind cruise experience through France. The brand new, luxuriously appointed ship makes its maiden voyage in 2017.
