Bkoolers, welcome to the Bkool Winter Cup 2016.
The biggest virtual cycling competition in the world
So what is the Bkool Winter Cup? The Winter Cup, which follows in the footsteps of the biggest virtual cycling competition we held during the Summer (The Summer Cup). We had such an amazing attendance that we couldn’t resist the opportunity to try and beat the record that we set only a couple of month ago!
Starting 12th December 2016 and finishing on the 9th March 2017, we’ve organised some epic challenges. Each week will be packed full of amazing gifts and surprises thanks to the amazing sponsors. The Winter Cup is something that shouldn’t be missed.
