Gleneagles has a well-deserved reputation for fantastic service and understated luxury. It boasts the only Michelin two-star restaurant in Scotland. Its rooms are cosy yet spacious, and designers have thought of every way possible to guarantee your comfort without resorting to the naff chocolate on the pillow and ready-poured bath. As well as hosting prestigious golf event, Gleneagles was the home of the 2005 G8 summit where President Bush was famously cycling in the grounds there one morning when he crashed into a policeman and broke the man's ankle.
Gleneagles doesn't just offer marvellous golfing facilities there are a host of activities from falconry to road bike hire and pre-marked routes. Situated in the heart of some of the most exciting countryside in Scotland what better way to explore it than on a world-class road bike?
At Gleneagles there is a fleet of Condor bikes to hire and experience the beautiful scenery. Each bike will have an on-bike Garmin navigational device pre-loaded with 10 circular routes varying from 12 miles to 60 miles. The fleet covers a wide selection of frame sizes allowing riders of any size to find a bike that fits.

Sport for Freedom was established to prevent vulnerable individuals at risk of human trafficking and to reintegrate survivors back into society using the power of sport. The charity was set up by Sky Sport's Julia Immonen her first fund raising activity was a record breaking achievement of rowing 3000 miles unaided across the Atlantic Ocean in just a 7 meter by 2 meter rowing boat from the Canaries to Barbados in 2011/12. Joined by four women, the Row for Freedom crew broke the record for the fastest women's crossing and established a record for being the first female crew of 5 ever to row the Atlantic.
Condor is delighted to be involved in her latest Sport for Freedom campaign Cycle for Freedom. Julia will be leading a team of 16 rider (some who have never cycled before) on a five day ride from Liverpool to London passing through historic and modern trafficking ports.
Condor has created a special Sport for Freedom Italia for the riders to use during the event and is providing training help and equipment.
Will you join us as we Ride the Olympic route for freedom? On the 18th October Sport for Freedom is asking everyone to join them on on the Cycle for Freedom Finale and raise money together as part of global Anti Slavery Day. Enter the ride here.
The Herne Hill Velodrome Trust was set up in 2011 as a response to the highly successful Save the Velodrome campaign. The Trust is responsible for securing the future of the Velodrome for generations to come.
Herne Hill Velodrome Trust is a registered charity and is reliant entirely on volunteer funding and support from individuals, companies and funding bodies as well as the fundraising activities of the Friends of the Velodrome.
Condor has worked with the trust for a number of years, helping them to produce and retail a fundraising cycling cap which can be purchased in store at Condor or at Herne Hill velodrome race meets. In the summer of 2014 Condor donated ten custom branded Lavoro track bicycles to the trust. The ten bicycles will be available for season long hire and help to generate additional funds for the trust and provide riders who are interested in taking their experience of track cycling further.

Set up over a decade ago, Rollapaluza has revived the long lost sport of indoor roller racing, in which pairs of competitors sit on bikes fixed to rollers propelled by the rear wheel and "race" each other over a hypothetical fixed distance. And for the past few years, Condor has supported them building custom roller-rig bikes to be used at adult events and corporate functions, as well as smaller kid specific frames for their school education programme and community festivals. This has enabled them to work with over 80 schools and 9000 school children over the past year alone, educating them on healthy lifestyle and activity. Rollapaluza have recently branched out, organising and promoting a night time cyclo-cross race - Muddy Hell - and London's first Urban Hill Climb, using their skill and knowledge to create an electric atmosphere and gather huge crowds to all sectors of the sport of cycling. Rollapaluza have had over 15,000 competitors take part in their unique brand of cycling fun, which is open to anyone across all age groups.
