Cycle S.O.S. – The Cyclists’ National Helpline and the National Cycle Museum are going to the Olympics!
The Olympics are upon us and after a gruelling amount of planning it is finally time to sit back and watch Team GB do what they do best!
It has already been a record breaking year for British cycling and fingers crossed over the coming weeks we will see the rest of our Olympic hopefuls joining in Bradley’s success.
Cycle S.O.S. – The cyclists National Helpline will be at the centre of the action as we sponsor the UK National Cycle Museum to exhibit at London 2012! An Olympic themed display of bicycles from yester-year is set to appear at Hampton Court Palace from July 26th to August 2nd.
Hampton Court Palace is expected to receive thousands of visitors each day. It’s going to be a must-see for cyclists and is also one of the few venues where you can catch “free to attend” events during London 2012. HCP forms part of the route, firstly, to the road races on the 28th and 29th July before playing host to the men’s & women’s time trials on the 1st August.
As the time trials come to an end and the Olympic cyclists have collected their medals outside the magnificent West Front on 1st August the palace will transform into “cyclemania” an eclectic celebration of cycles and showmanship including the National Cycle Museum’s exhibition where you may also find chance to speak to our own Paul Darlington who will be attending throughout the week. Cycle-S.O.S. are extremely proud to be in a position to support The National Cycle Museum & British Cycling in what is emerging as such a phenomenal year for the sport.
Paul says “With cycling foremost as the spirit of the Olympic year, it’s right that the British cycle industry’s heritage and achievements are celebrated. The mood of optimism in cycling has never been greater, within our athletes and the cycling public whether competitor or commuter. This is cycling’s moment!”
