Ed Clancy – in Team Rapha Condor Sharp kit

If you missed out on the schwag grab we ran over the last couple of weeks to ride with Ed Clancy, don’t worry – some extra places have been made available on Sunday’s ride, enabling you to have a second bite at the cherry. Or 9bar, to be more accurate.

We have FIVE more places up for grabs, but you’d better be quick, we’re going to draw this at the stroke of noon tomorrow. What’s more, you need to be able to get to the Peak District for this Sunday morning with your bike and helmet to take part.

So make a comment below, and keep your fingers crossed!

The original story which gives all the background appears below, and good luck!

Fancy going for a training ride with a triple world champion and Olympic gold medallist, Ed Clancy? Well thanks to those nice people at 9Bar you can. We've got five places up for grabs to go for a ride with Ed on Sunday 1 May in the Peak District. We'll be there too to record the event… but don't let that put you off. As well as that, there's a box of 9Bars to be won every day until the Royal Wedding!

Our five winners will join Ed to tackle some of his favourite training roads then we'll stop for lunch and you can ask the Olympic hero any questions you have on cycling, training or his career. AND that's not all, the lucky five will also be going home weighed down with enough 9Bar nutritional goodness to last them a very long time indeed.

If you win all you've got to do it turn up on Sunday 1 May (that's the bank holiday weekend) with your bike and a helmet and we'll take care of the rest… snacks will be provided, possibly of the 9Bar variety.

9Bars are a completely natural blend of nuts seeds and honey, they're also delicious we like them as you can find out by reading our 9Bar review, Ed Clancy is also a fan: “They’re great for me on and off the bike, I was recommended to use 9Bars leading up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics as some of the other bars and gels I was using weren’t going down that well,” explains Clancy. “I use them both on and off the bike, I’m a bit of a snacker really so they’re ideal to take with me on the go. My favourite time is at breakfast, a 9Bar and a banana is all you need!”

We'll be drawing our competition at noon on Saturday 30 April, usual Schwag Rules apply. On top of those, you'll also need to be able to get yourself to and from the Peak District, obviously. Good luck!

My youngest son has given me permission to miss managing his U13 cricket team's first match of the season if I win ! So, please let it be me !

Cycling - not just a pastime or sport - free your soul on the open road.

Sun's over the yardarm, Schwag Grab is now closed - you'll each be getting an email very shortly, so look out for that and please reply to us as soon as you can.
