One of our Rock the Cotswolds objectives is to spread the positive message about the cool and different side of the Cotswolds.
On yer bike
So we are monstrously excited to announce that Rock the Cotswolds are now the proud sponsors of a cycling team. Yes, we’re a bit like Red Bull, but without the fizzy drink bit. Or the money. Have a look at our lovely neon green top…
Imagine cycling at speed and banking around steep narrow corners…in the middle of a city centre. This is StreetVelodrome, based in Cheltenham, and who are going on a nationwide tour, with some adrenalin-buzzing racing. To get a feel for what StreetVelodrome is like, watch this video.
Young at heart
Rock the Cotswolds is proud to have a team that will be all about showcasing exciting new cycling talent. We want to find the champions of tomorrow, so riders aged 16-22 will be given the opportunity to compete alongside the elite and Olympic riders. We’ll have a team of four different riders in each city. And here are the fab four from the Paisley competition…
There will be six events, going from Scotland to the North East, from the South Coast to East Anglia and ending up with a big final in London. So we truly are going to be rocking all over the UK.
We’ll be on the telly
TV presenter Jill Douglas is supporting the series, sponsored by Asda and it will be aired on BT Sport and Eurosport later in the year. It’s fantastic coverage for Rock the Cotswolds and a big thanks to the StreetVelodrome team for believing in us and helping us to change the perceptions about the Cotswolds.
It’s another step in our dream to get the message out about the cool Cotswolds and to help retain and attract talent to the area.
