You get individual fundraising guidance, an incredible support team looking after you, English speaking coaches, and personalised briefs. You just need to push yourself to your cycling limits.
THE PERSONAL CHALLENGE
For riders, Cykelnerven is both a personal challenge for willpower and stamina and, at the same, time an important contribution to the fight against multiple sclerosis.
The cycle funds MS research and every turn of the crank will bring us closer to a world without MS and you closer to greatness!
PART OF THE BIKE STORY
The dedicated riders become part of the cycling history as they occupy legendary Tour de France mountains like Col de la Loze, Alpe D'Huez, Col du Galibier, Col du Télégraphe and many more.
Each year the route changes based on what the toughest mountains are in that year's Tour de France.
"The enthusiasm and motivation of the participants, despite the big challenge and the really steep mountains, is unique to Cykelnerven. It's four ultra hard days, but we're really impressed with the bicycle rider's efforts. Just seeing 300 riders dressed in the bike's colours stopping at tops gives me a joy all the way down the stomach."
- BO VELDS ANDRESEN (COACH)
