Already anticipating being tired of the hustle and bustle of the upcoming holiday season? Already looking for an exhilarating escape from the hectic year and the chaotic Christmas schedule? Look no further!

MC Velo presents the Hectic 500, a 500 km festive cycling week that is just what you need to celebrate and recharge.

Embrace cycling time.

Between Christmas and New Year's Eve, MC Velo invites you to pedal your way into the heart of the holiday season. Our Hectic 500 is not just a cycling challenge, it's a celebration of the freedom and exhilaration of cycling when you have the time to enjoy some more of it.

Get away from the hectic schedule.

The Hectic 500 is your opportunity to step away from the chaotic holiday routines, breathe in the fresh air, and enjoy the open road.

How to Participate.

Participating in the Hectic 500 is as easy as hitting the road with MC. Choose your rides to target 500 (from over 630kms of riding), register on MC TeamApp, and let the cycling celebration begin.

The rides.
