Well it turns out (not that we weren't expecting it to be so) that there's not as many of you up for a proper big adventure as there are wanting to pocket some free stuff. But eight hardy souls are game for for a bit of beautiful mid-Wales scenery and a few lung-bursting hills to boot. So sod it. you can all come. We'll sort out the extra entries one way or another, and it won't be by photocopying the ones we have, honest.
For next week normal service is resumed, with the scent of adventure replaced by a rubbery tang. stay tuned...
Below is the original story:
Something different this week – we're giving away adventure, memories and some great riding with five free entries to Round 1 of the GORE BIKE WEAR™ Sportive Series in Llanwrtyd Wells on 4 July worth £25 each.
Here's a chance to ride your bike in one of the most beautiful parts of Britain and test yourself over a challenging course… and should the mood take you, make a weekend of it too.
There's a choice of two loops of 50 or 90 miles riding through some of the most stunning scenery Wales has to offer and up and over some of its toughest climbs including the legendary Devil's Staircase which featured as an hors category climb in both the Milk Race and the Kellogs Tour of Britain… if you win you'll certainly remember that.
The event village and start/finish is a well appointed camp site on the edge of Llanwrtyd and anyone coming along is invited to make a weekend of it – there's plenty to do by bike including a round of the Merida Bikes MTB Marathon series if you fancy making the weekend a tad dirtier.
Usual Schwag Grab rules apply simply comment below to be in next Friday's draw… Good luck!
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
