RIDE WITH WORLD TOUR PRO: BEN SWIFT
World pro tour Ben Swift will be hanging out with us for the whole day. You’ll have the chance to ride alongside him at the sportive in the morning, and you'll get a chance to ask him all those burning questions as ITV presenter Matt Barbet hosts a Q&A with Ben after lunch.
BIKES AND WORKSHOPS
Throughout the day there’ll be a chance for you to check out some of the many collectors bikes on display – a few of which are listed below. There will also be a workshop on how to restore your Colnago by restoration expert Rohan Dubash.
1971 Colnago ‘Super’
