Garmin® has announced its annual Ride Out will this year return as the “Garmin Ride”, catering to even more cyclists by offering a new gravel route and virtual ride as well as the traditional road ride.
Attended by a number of Garmin sponsored pro-cyclists, the Garmin Ride will be hosted at the new location of St. Giles House, running across the 7th and 8th October in aid of Action Medical Research’s COVID-19 Children’s Appeal.
Garmin Ride In
Kicking off the Garmin Ride 2021, cyclists can ‘Ride In’ on Zwift on Thursday 7th October.
Riding alongside a cycling legend, those taking part will be eligible for a Garmin Ride In Badge.
Participants who choose to donate to Action Medical Research will be in with the chance of winning some amazing Garmin prizes.
Garmin Ride Out
On Friday 8th October, starting from St. Giles House, cyclists can choose to either Ride Out on gravel or road. Riders will hear from and ride alongside some of the world’s top pro-cyclists, and will be eligible for a Garmin Ride Out Badge and Garmin Ride jersey or t-shirt.
Not to be missed is the Ride Out raffle where entrants can win some incredible prizes including Tacx trainers, Garmin watches, cycling kit and more.
“Garmin and Tacx’s products are made for all terrains and all seasons, which is why we’re so excited for the Garmin Ride to offer two new ways to take part: a virtual ride and a gravel ride,” comments Theo Axford, Head of Marketing at Garmin.
“The Garmin Ride is one of the only cycling events in the UK where you can ride alongside some of the world’s best pro cyclists, and all for a good cause, and we can’t wait to bring it back in a new and improved form this year.”
Sarah Stevenson, Senior Partnership Development Manager from Action Medical Research said: “Our COVID-19 Children’s Appeal is helping us better understand how the pandemic is impacting children, but there’s still more work to be done.
All funds raised from the Garmin Ride including donations, entry costs and raffle proceeds will go towards funding research to help protect current and future generations of children.”
