In memory of our wonderful friend and colleague - Jon Doar - who sadly lost his battle with cancer last year; the CIE Team are taking on the world this year (or at least 3 parts of it!) to raise money for our supported charity 'Maggie's Centres'.
This year the CIE Team will be taking on our 'Triple Challenge' of endurance cycling and climbing. Beginning in February with the Derby Huub Track Attaque - a 24hour non-stop velodrome cycle challenge and rounding things off with taking on the world's tallest freestanding mountain - the mount kilimanjaro - as we ditch the bikes and pull on our climbing boots!
Derby Huub Track Attaque | 8-9th February 2020
24 Hour velodrome challenge
The challenge takes place at Derby Arena - the Midlands’ hub for track cycling in February. The 250 metre track has been ridden by some of the worlds top cyclists and is the home of independent British UCI track team, Huub Wattbike. This velodrome challenge event is all about endurance as team CIE will be relaying laps around the track for 24 hours!
Challenge Adventure Charities - Pyrenees | September 2020
500 miles in 3 days cycle challenge
CIE's very own TEAM CIE charity cyclists are getting back in the saddle as they embark upon their 2020 marathon cycle challenge through the Pyrenees!
Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro | 24th-30th September 2020
In September members of the CIE team are taking on the challenge to summit Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest freestanding mountain in the world on the African continent at 5896m! The 19,341ft climb will consist of traverse jungles and wetlands as well as battling altitude sickness as the team ascend to the chilly heights of the glaciers to reach the summit.
