WIN VIP tickets to the Women’s Tour Race Finish in Suffolk 2021
With the Women’s Tour cancelled this year, due to the Coronavirus crisis, Keep moving Suffolk is offering you the opportunity to virtually ride the opening stage of the 2019 Women’s Tour held in Suffolk, whilst supporting East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Charities have been massively impacted by the coronavirus so we’re giving you the opportunity to do your bit for the wonderful East Anglian Air Ambulance. Their crews are out every day saving lives and supporting front-line emergency services across East Anglia. Every penny raised from this challenge will go directly to this charity.
Your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to virtually ride the 164.8 km stage from Beccles to Stowmarket, which saw the World’s best female cyclists compete for honours in 2019 and Jolien D’Hoore secure the Green Jersey.
Simply split the distance over as many days as you like between the 20th July and 16th August and record them on the “My Virtual Mission” platform using the Strava app or simply add your distance manually. Full details will be available via the my virtual mission platform - www.myvirtualmission.com
A limited number of 500 places are available on this challenge
Registration is now open and will close on the 19th July. Sign up, here: https://www.keepmovingsuffolk.com/womens-tour-virtual-cycle-challenge/
In addition to a massive sense of pride in helping an amazing charity, participants will receive an e certificate. Participants will also be entered into a draw to win one of 5 pairs of VIP tickets to the 2021 Women’s Tour race finish in Felixstowe.
