We’ve partnered up with Rouvy and The Taiwan Tourism Bureau to bring you a race that lets you virtually experience cycling through the central mountains in Taiwan: the home of the Taiwan KOM Challenge, and raise money for charity. The event is in support of Action Medical Research to help fund vital research for poorly children.

 The event will give you the opportunity to compete on behalf of your club, as well as bringing you a once in a lifetime opportunity to ride in a virtual peloton with one of our champions: Mark Beaumont, Alex Dowsett & Ed Laverack! The fastest competitors will then be invited to our Live Finals in a central location in London when lockdown regulations permit!

To participate all you will need is a laptop, mobile or desktop device, in addition to a turbo trainer or smart bike. All participants will have free access to Rouvy for the duration of the event, so there are no hidden costs involved.


Mark Beaumont is perhaps known best for being the world record holder for cycling around the world in the fastest time. Safe to say he loves a challenge, so good luck to the racers in the 10am race!

Alex Dowsett has been at the forefront of professional cycling for the best part of a decade. The current Isreal Start-Up Nation rider is one of the best time-trialists in the world, and we’re delighted that he’ll be leading our 12:00 peloton.

Ed Laverack, British National Hill Climb Champion and all round friendly Welshman will be competing in the 2pm race. Good job the the Taiwan KOM Challenge isn’t uphill. Oh wait…


Sign up below to compete in the virtual race on the 21st November.

When you sign up you will be sent an email confirming your participation. Closer to the event you will then be emailed a link to a survey to enter your Rouvy username, which will then add you to the race.

Action Medical Research has a proud history of protecting children for over 65 years funding research to develop treatments, vaccinations and cures. The charity was originally founded in 1952 by Duncan Guthrie, who made it his mission to raise funds to defeat polio, a condition that affected the lives of many thousands of children including his own daughter Janet. His mission was realised when within 10 years, the first UK polio vaccines were introduced. Their track record of success also includes helping develop a vaccination for Hib meningitis and testing the rubella vaccination. Their funding also helped to develop the use of ultrasound scanning in pregnancy. Today, they continue their fight to fund top quality medical research to save the lives of babies, children and young people and are forging ahead to fund research to help better understand the impact of COVID-19 on children.
