Your chance to ride The Women's Tour route in London

Ride through the heart of London on closed roads and raise money for a great cause

How do you like the idea of riding through the very heart of London on closed roads, while crowds line the streets and cheer you on, before stopping to watch some of the worlds greatest pro racers take to the route?

You can turn this dream into reality and raise money for an excellent cause at the same time if you sign up for the Pink Ribbon Tour ride, in support of Breast Cancer Care.

If you don't fancy riding yourself or just want a comfortable spot in a prime position to watch the pro riders of The OVO Energy Women's Tour race through the city on the final stage of this epic event, you can reserve a spot in the reserved hospitality area, in sight of the finish line, and enjoy complimentary refreshments while you watch the race.

Or why not combine the two for a truly memorable day out?

Pink Ribbon Tour

The Pink Ribbon Tour is a women's only sportive through the centre of London in support of Breast Cancer Care.

It takes place on Sunday 11th June in central London, starting at 10.00am from Carlton House Terrace.

You'll be joining 1,000 other women, riding on an incredible closed-road circuit in the centre of London, past famous landmarks such as Trafalgar Square and The Strand. It's the very same route that the pro cyclists of The Women's Tour will be racing on later the same day, and you'll find your route lined with cheering supporters.

The route is 25km long, with 1km to celebrate each of the 25 years of the iconic Pink Ribbon.

While you need to be aged 18 and over to enter, girls aged 16 and 17 can also take part if accompanied by an adult, for a reduced entrance rate. How about a mother-daughter cycling outing, or grandmother-granddaughter. The more riders of every age out there, the better!

You can enter via the Breast Cancer Care website, and it costs £32.50 per adult and £65 for one adult plus one child.

The atmosphere will be electric, and this is an unmissable experience raising money for a great cause.

Pink Ribbon Tour Hospitality for friends and family

If you fancy spectating at the Pink Ribbon Tour in comfort, then you can book yourself a hospitality package that not only gives you a prime spot near the finish line of the ride, but also complimentary refreshments including an open bar and food, a covered area in case the weather is less than favourable and a complimentary souvenir programme.

Best of all, you'll not only have ring-side seats to cheer on your loved ones in the Pink Ribbon Tour, but also the perfect spot for watching all the action as the final stage of The Women's Tour speeds past later in the day.

Tickets cost £65 per person, and £10 of this goes directly to Breast Cancer Care, the charity partner of The Women's Tour.

To reserve your place, visit the Ticketmaster Pink Ribbon Ride event page and add the code CYCLE10.

The area opens at 11:45 and finishes around 17:30 on the day.
