Following on from the success of Team Sky at the Tour de France 2016, Bridgend Ford are delighted to announce that we will be hosting our inaugural Tour de Ford cycling event, created in association with Team Sky on Sunday 16th October 2016. The event will give a great opportunity for cyclists of all ability levels to come and enjoy an organised 90 km ride, with official Team Sky support vehicles such as the Ford Mondeo, and pro cycling tips and advice.
There will also be complimentary refreshments and Team Sky merchandise, plus a competition for a limited edition cycling jersey and the chance to win a meeting with the Team Sky professional cyclists. Not only this, but we will have a selection of products from local sports and isotonic drinks producer - Gluco.
Beginning at Bridgend Ford, the event will start and finish at our dealership. We plan on having three separate waves with a support vehicle driving alongside each wave.
The day will kick off with an introduction speech from General Sales Manager Paul Davies who will brief the riders and explain the relevant safety precautions for the day. Once the riders set off they will embark on a scenic and mildly-challenging route around the area.
We have recently had confirmation of a current Welsh International Rugby player who will be in attendance when the riders return. In all, it promises to be a fun and exciting day for everyone involved.
