Wiggle-Honda’s trio of Olympic champions, Laura Trott, Dani King and Joanna Rowsell, will ride alongside Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins in the Ride With Brad event in Barnoldswick on Sunday, August 11th.
Trott, King and Rowsell were at the heart of the British success at last summer’s Olympic Games. They stormed to a gold medal in a world record time in the women’s team pursuit, with Trott adding a further gold in the Women’s Omnium. Also riding will be Junior World champion Elinor Barker , Junior European champion Amy Roberts and teammate and manager, Rochelle Gilmore.
Now in its second year, the ‘Ride with Brad’ offers participants the unique opportunity to ride alongside Sir Bradley Wiggins. Money raised from the event will go towards the Bradley Wiggins Foundation, which aims to promote participation in sport and to provide support to local individuals, groups and communities.
Starting and finishing in Barnoldswick, there are three distances on offer to participants, 100km or 160km and the newly-added 50km route.
The routes have been carefully planned to ensure they take in Sir Bradley Wiggins’ favourite training roads as well as Lancashire’s most outstanding natural beauty spots.
Entry for the 160km and 100km routes will cost £40 and the 50km route will cost £35. For further information, go to www.ridewithbrad.com
