ŠKODA will build on its reputation for supporting major cycle events this weekend, when nearly 25,000 enthusiastic amateurs – many from small businesses – and celebrity cycle fans are expected to join the pros in the Prudential RideLondon.
ŠKODA will field a fleet of more than 30 vehicles that will be guiding and encouraging the professional riders throughout the route.
Those riding the full route will take on 100 miles of gruelling roads taking in both London landmarks and the challenging Surrey hills.
This event has become a favourite among professional and amateur cyclists alike and has been blossomed as a world-class festival of cycling in just its second year. The ride on closed roads has been hailed as a platform to encourage more people to cycle safely and more often.
There are a series of events over the weekend, culminating in a race between 150 of the world’s top cyclists and their teams around a modified version of the London 2012 Olympic Road Race route.
AS Official Car Partner for Prudential RideLondon ŠKODA UK will also be exhibiting at Prudential RideLondon Cycling Show, a free exhibition event being held at ExCeL London from Thursday 7th August – Saturday 9th August.
Visitors to the ŠKODA stand (no 530) can expect to see ŠKODA‘s Tour de France Limited Editions of its Octavia, Superb and Yeti models.
Designed with the keen cyclist in mind, the Tour de France models feature cycling specific options as standard including: an internal or external bike carrier, waterproof seat covers, branded wheel bags and a reversible boot floor.
A long-standing supporter of cycling worldwide, ŠKODA is also the vehicle supplier to The Tour of Britain (7-14 September 2014), as well as a number of professional cycling teams including Matrix Vulpine, Team Raleigh and Rapha Condor JLT.
For small businesses with company car drivers, then the ŠKODA Superb Estate, priced from £19,810, makes an ideal choice. There’s impressive load capacity with a massive 1,865 litres of boot space (seats folded) which is enough to accommodate an internal bike rack.
