Following the success of the inaugural Ride with Brad event last year, Sir Bradley Wiggins, his wife Lady Catherine and organisers Pennine Events have announced that it will return this year on Sunday, August 11th.
Established as part of launching the Bradley Wiggins Foundation, a registered charity, the event gives thousands the opportunity to ride with Britain’s first-ever winner of the Tour de France.
And in the process, riders will directly support his Foundation which aids young people in getting involved and developing their potential in sport.
“It was a great event last time, riding round this beautiful area where I train when at home and meeting so many riders and spectators.
“We want to keep the event growing and becoming the best sportive there is,” said Sir Bradley.
A central part of Ride with Brad is the sportive, which will offer a choice of three distances.
For those wanting a challenge and the opportunity to Ride with Brad, but not yet ready to take on the 160km and 100km options last time, the organisers have added a 50km route, also around the beautiful countryside and villages in Pendle and the Ribble Valley.
Further details about the event will be released in the coming weeks and on the new website – www.ridewithbrad.com
