Ride With Brad On 19th August
by Henry Peacock
This is your chance to ride with potential Tour de France Champion and multiple Olympic medalist Bradley Wiggins on 19th August. This brand new event has been specially organised to help celebrate the launch of the Bradley Wiggins Foundation.
Bradley Wiggins currently holds the Yellow Jersey in the Tour and won his first stage yesterday [9th July] in the inidivdual time trial. Wiggins will also line up for the Olympic time trial next month in which he could take a Gold Medal.
Both Sportive routes (160Km or 100Km) will take you on a tour of Lancashire’s most outstanding natural beauty spots. This includes the Forest of Bowland where you will pass through picturesque villages and farmland of the Ribble Valley, before climbing onto remote open moorland where you will be greeted with stunning views and a silence broken only by your exertions.
Tour de France Champion?
On the 160km route you will conquer many challenging climbs and descents that have featured in the Tour of Lancashire, the Tour of Britain and the National Road Race Championships. Renowned climbs such as Waddington Fell, Trough of Bowland, Nick o’ Pendle and Longridge Fell form the breath-taking backdrop to this challenging route.
The shorter 100km route misses out the northern moorland loop around the Trough of Bowland but still includes Barley Fell, Waddington Fell, Longridge Fell and the Nick o’ Pendle. A shorter challenge but you still get plenty of fantastic scenery and the chance to ride with Brad too.There will be plenty of opportunities to refuel at a number of Feed Stations along the way provided by our partners Gatorade and CNP.
The route will be fully signed and marshalled, mobile and static mechanics are provided by our partner Wiggle who will be on hand to help should any problem occur. All this support and event management means you can safely enjoy the ride and scenery alongside supporting the Bradley Wiggins Foundation.
Map My Tracks are the event GPS Tracking and Timing partner and they will be supporting a special timed challenge on the big climbs, something for you specialist climbers to relish.There will be an Event Village featuring many of our partners along with entertainment and displays.
