Got your passport?
It’s time to ride and time to register for the #7PeaksRide. The season officially opens on 16 October and runs until 31 March.
Before 16th October passports are posted out to many recent past riders, but not every past rider will be automatically sent one, so if in doubt please REGISTER NOW to receive your new passport in the mail. You should receive it within one week of registration.
Don’t forget you can also pick up a passport from each peak’s stamping station or visitor information centre.
Tell your friends and encourage them to get online!
Before you hit the tarmac, make sure you keep on top of all the key information like road closures, weather forecast and fire safety information. Here is a checklist of key details to read over before your ride.
Login to Strava
Join our club, 7 Peaks Ride, and track your achievements against others (and yourself!). The club is growing each day and some of the results on there are beyond impressive. Keep up the good work! In your passport is a stamping page plus a new page for this year to stamp and keep (souvenir style!). You can also send in your Strava log as proof of your ride achievements. Key announcements will also be posted on the club page.
Ride all 7 Peaks for your jersey.
We look forward to some jerseys in action pics as the season gets underway. The 2015/16 jerseys are ready to send out, so as soon as you have climbed your 7 peaks for the season we can take your jersey order and send it out. Here is the new design that we are sure you’ll love; can’t have too many jerseys right?
Share your pics!
Hashtag your photos, so we can share them for you too. We love seeing all your photos sharing the spirit of this challenging but fun series of rides. Our Instagram photos also come up in an album on our Facebook/7peaksride page so you will be famous, well almost everywhere.
There are many different ways to take on the 7 Peaks Ride and joining one of the Domestique Rides is a social and supportive way to tackle a climb. This is a fabulous way to participate with other cyclists and a great way to overcome some of the tough challenges in the series.
Not only do you ride with climbing experts and supportive like-minded riders, the road will be closed to cars during the ride and the rides are totally free!
Please register to ride at domestiquecycling.cc
If you have any friends who’d like to volunteer and support the riders, then the Domestique team would love to hear from them too.
