Tune into ITV’s Countrywise on Friday 4th November to see Ben Fogle take on the Struggle sportive.
Not one to shy away from a challenge, Ben Fogle decides to take on the hills of our epic sportive in Yorkshire as part of a feature on Yorkshire cycling.
Ben’s little experience of road cycling isn’t the only thing holding him back as he attempts one of the toughest Yorkshire climbs on the sportive, Malham Cove. Ben’s bike has been begged and borrowed from the Yorkshire Bike Library, an initiate that provides second-hand bikes on loan to encourage people into cycling.
Drafted in to assist Ben are riders from of last year’s Struggle and members of the Cappuccino Cycling Club.
Watch out for the feature on ITV at 8pm on Friday 4th November.
