Competition Time to Celebrate the Tour of Britain!

Tour of Britain Gold Sponsors

With just a calendar month (or so) to go until the Stage 5 ending of the Tour of Britain (have we mentioned before that we are B&NES Gold Sponsors???!), we are getting a little excited about our upcoming competition, to be run on the day from our Marmot Tours stand in the Cycling Village at Royal Avenue, Bath.

Free Gifts!

We are thrilled to offer you a ‘plethora’ of gifts from ourselves and a selection of the companies that we cross paths with in the course of organising and providing you with exceptional road cycling holidays.  During our year we collaborate with a number of organisations.  A few stand out as being exceptionally customer focused, quality driven companies who share our ethos and drive to deliver excellence.   So a huge thank you to:

Assos :

Their excellent Chamois Creme is a godsend to Classic Cols and Raiding clients alike.  Having a comfortable ‘seat’ is, quite frankly, priceless!

Primal Pantry :

Their delicious and ‘clean fuel’ paleo bars and protein bars are a favourite with our clients.

9bar :

Their range of organic cereal and seed bars is exceptional with a variety to suit every tastebud and a great balance of nutrients to help our clients on their way.

Choc on Choc:

Based within a mile of our Marmot Tours HQ in Woolverton, we’re pretty excited about the cycling focused chocolates they offer.  Watch out for offers on Fathers Day/Christmas and the like!

Tour de Force:

Ever wanted to ride one or many Tour de France stages, ahead of the pros while fundraising for an excellent cause (our Marmot Tours 2016 Charity): the William Wates Memorial Trust?  Tracy and Sarah @ Tour de Force offer you a once in a lifetime chance to be a pro for the day.

Sticker Jar:

With a sticker for every occasion, including of course, Bike Name Stickers!  Sticker jar have designed a number of custom stickers for us over the years – with excellent customer service and value for money.
