On Sunday 1st September join the Rapha-Condor-JLT Team ahead of the Tour of Britain for a ride in the Peak District and to find out about their plan for the race, the season so far and a chance to meet some of the sponsors.
The day will begin with croissants and coffee, followed by a supported two-hour ride around Buxton on the team's usual training route. After a buffet lunch there will be an informal Q&A with the team and the chance to test team bikes and kit. During the ride, the lead group will be riding at about 17-18mph, while an additional second group will take things more easily for those who prefer a more sedate pace.
Numbers on the ride are limited. The day costs £10 to attend and tickets must be bought in advance.
