Event description
Phil Deeker is joining us in London to talk about his 10 years leading the rides of the iconic Cent Cols Challenge.

About this Event

On the evening of Thursday 14th November, founder of the Cent Cols Challenge Phil Deeker is coming to give a talk about his ten years leading these incredible rides across the great mountain ranges of Europe.

Riding a Cent Cols is often spoken of as the ultimate challenge for amateur cyclists. Over 10 days riders climb 100 cols, with 200KM stages and 6000 vertical metres of ascent in one day commonplace.

Phil is coming to London to share some stories and photographs from the trips, as well as to discuss the clothing and kit required to stay comfortable and protected in the fast changing and often extreme weather conditions encountered when riding in the mountains.

Graeme Raeburn, Performance Director at RAEBURN and previously Lead Designer at Rapha, will also share some of his insights into the process of designing high performance clothing for the demanding conditions created by rides like the Cent Cols Challenge.

Albion's A/W19 range, and the full RAEBURN collection including their latest collaboration with Timberland, will also be available to purchase on the night.

We'll also be providing beer by Toast, an award winning sustainable beer company whose mission is to reduce food waste by brewing beer using surplus fresh bread.
