With Wiggins not featuring in this year’s Tour de France, the Ride with Brad Sportive is your chance to not only see the man in action, but ride alongside him too. This is one of the most scenic and low traffic areas in England, cycle through Lancashire’s most outstanding natural beauty spots – on a choice of routes of 50, 100 and 160km. With race HQ at Victory Park, Barnoldswick (map here), there will also be a whole range of activities for non-competitors at the accompanying Festival of Sport including fencing, rugby and a fun run. Post event Wiggo will be on hand and, if it’s anything like last years proceedings, there will be plenty of opportunity to meet and greet. Entry fees are £35 for the 50km option and £40 for both the 100 and 160km routes.
Bradley Wiggins says, ‘Come and join me on a challenging ride through the stunning Lancashire countryside and experience the roads and climbs I regularly train on… I look forward to welcoming you all and riding alongside many of you on what will be a special day for all the family.’
