Cycling Events Are Proving a Big Hit in 2010
UK cyclists enjoying the wide selection of events, says Evans Cycles
(PRWEB) March 9, 2010 -- The number of people participating in organised cycling events has skyrocketed
going into 2010, according to Evans Cycles. The UK cycling community has a vast choice of events spanning the
entire nation. These events all vary in style, difficulty, and length, each with their own unique twist. However,
the basis is always the same – getting out on your bike and having fun!
Like for like the Evans Cycles Ride it! series entries are up 150% for Jan – Feb compared to this time last year,
according to the last entries. This is further bolstered by the King of the Downs entries which have hit 500
already. Spaces are limited at 1200 so best to get in early to be apart of the South East’s toughest sportive.
“With the amount of people getting on bikes its only natural that companies do everything they can to support
this movement. We opened 4 new stores last year and have incorporated more Ride It events so the cycling
community in the UK always have a great event to look forward to,” says retail director at Evans Cycles, Mark
It’s not only the Evans Cycles events that are growing. Organised rides throughout the UK seem to be popping
up everywhere. The boom of people buying new bikes has opened up fantastic opportunities for cyclists to get
out and ride new routes and join a large cycling community. Cycling calendars are full up this year with an event
on nearly every weekend.
“The feedback we have had from all types of people shows how great organised events are. Hassle free, exciting,
and friendly are just some of the many words people are using to describe our Ride it! series. Furthermore, it’s a
great day out for families with available routes for all abilities,” Mark adds.
