The 7G challenge will begin for the Sunday groups in March with an expectation that we will complete the seven climbs on a date to be set over a six month period but we know the Saturday group will be eyeing up the weather in the coming weeks with a view to cracking on and completing before Summer.

In the next couple of weeks we will bring you a concise breakdown of the challenge and also of the Far Side challenge which hopefully can be taken on in advance of the more onerous climbs of the 7G!
