The Challenge 2014

Did you know that The Camping and Caravanning Club’s founding member, Thomas Hiram-Holding was a cycle-camper?

To celebrate the Club’s cycle-camping heritage, a Club team took on a six-day cycling challenge during National Camping and Caravanning Week.

Starting at Wantage, the site of the Club’s inaugural meeting, the cycle-campers rode up the country, pitching up at Club Sites, Certificated Sites and Club Meets along the way.

And in true Club spirit, all of the riders undertaking ‘The Challenge’ wore traditional cycling clothing, like Hiram-Holding and friends, throughout the six days – think tweed, bloomers and breeches!
