Orange to give away hundreds of bicycles

Orange – official telecommunications partner of the Tour De France – is giving away 500 mountain bike and helmet sets worth £200 each in support of its ‘On Your Bike, London’ initiative to celebrate the Tour’s Grand Depart, which this year takes place in London.

Soap actress Gemma Atkinson and GB Olympic cycling gold medallists Chris Hoy and Jason Queally will be handing out a total of 500 black mountain bikes for FREE to lucky members of the public who turn up at 9:00am on July 4th at the Covent Garden Piazza.

RCUK has teamed up with official Tour de France partner Orange to give readers a chance to ride the 120-mile Stage 1 London to Canterbury route on 1st July – a week before the professionals. The winners and 5000 others will cycle the marked and marshalled route from Greenwich through Kent to Canterbury. They’ll be provided with an Orange branded cycling suit, free refreshments along the way and transport back from Canterbury to London is included.

This competition has now closed, stay tuned to see if you won
