Cycling fans are being given the chance to gain a unique view of the forthcoming Women’s Tour event in Northamptonshire – from the passenger seat of the official support car.

Wellingborough Cycles have teamed up with Progress Skoda Northampton to offer the chance to travel alongside the leading group on Wednesday, May 7. Top names including Laura Trott and Dani King are taking part in the event.

The tour begins in Oundle that day, travelling almost 60 miles through Grafton Underwood, Rushton, Desborough, Harrington before finishing in Northampton.

Darren Jeyes, owner of Wellingborough Cycles, said: “Cycling has never been as popular, it’s really taken off following the success of Team GB in the Olympics and Bradley Wiggins in the Tour de France.”

He said he had noticed a huge rise in the number of people taking part in cycling, and he added: “To have the Women’s Tour passing through Northamptonshire is great for us and will boost cycling’s profile even more. We are delighted to team up with Progress Skoda Northampton to offer this incredible prize.”
