Cyclists will have the chance to share the road with riders from Cannondale, Movistar, Lampre-Merida and Madison Genesis at a special Garmin ride in aid of children’s charity Action Medical Research.
The ride, designed by Action Medical Research’s cycling experts, offers one of the most scenic cycling experiences in the country with a stunning blend of forest roads, quaint villages, tree-lined bends and far-reaching views.The event is open to the public for the first time this year and aims to smash 2015’s fundraising total of £35,000 to help save and change children’s lives.
Richard Daish, Senior Marketing Executive at Garmin, said: “Ride Out is Garmin’s annual celebration of cycling, we’re excited to once again partner with Action Medical Research and support such a great charity. Ride Out offers our customers the unique opportunity to join Garmin’s product experts on a ride through the New Forest, alongside professional cycling teams that also use Garmin technology. We’re looking forward to holding another successful event.”
The event starts at 8am with a Q&A with pro cycling teams and a raffle in aid of Action Medical Research. Raffle prizes include cutting edge cycling products, with one winner taking home a brand new Madison bike. Riders and pro teams depart at 11am to commence the 47-mile route through the New Forest.
Entry to the Garmin Ride Out 2016 is £35 and all riders will receive a limited edition Garmin Ride Out technical cycling jersey. For more information on the Garmin Ride Out 2016 please visit action.org.uk/garmin-ride-out
