In an impressive turnout, more than 50 intrepid cyclists headed off from the Westover Jaguar dealership on West Quay Road in Poole, to take part in a Ride Out across the Purbecks - jointly organised by Westover Jaguar and Bournemouth Cycleworks.
Cyclists came from as far as Taunton and Southampton to join more locally based riders for the 30 mile route that took them along and around the Jurassic Coast, visiting a range of the best sights and views en route. Riding in two groups, there was amazingly just one puncture stop for just five minutes near Corfe Castle – otherwise it was a perfect ride for all concerned!
The first group was lead out by an official Jaguar Sportbrake Team SKY car – bringing visions of the Tour de France to the Dorset roads! The riders enjoyed their day and plans are already afoot for the next one in 2016.
“We were delighted to be involved and pleased to provide food and drinks for the riders before and after the ride,” said Neal Clarke, Sales Manager at Westover Jaguar. “It was a fantastic sight to see them all leaving the dealership in the morning and a relief to see them all come back smiling and reporting an excellent ride, later in the day!”
Westover Jaguar has formed an excellent working relationship with Bournemouth Cycleworks - the premier bike shop in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole, based on Christchurch Road in Bournemouth.
The Westover showroom sports a display from Cycleworks and Westover Jaguar has noticed a significant increase in the number of cycle racks sold with new and approved used Jaguar Sportbrakes over the past twelve months.
Cycleworks stocks a huge selection of mountain, road, hybrid, women’s and kids bikes from some of the greatest biking brands, including Giant, Trek, Charge, Colnago, Pearl Izumi, GT, Fox and RockShox, as well as clothing and accessories. The Cycleworks team also works alongside sports therapists and chiropractors to ensure safe and comfortable riding and offers a full fitting service.
“We were delighted to work alongside Westover Jaguar in organising this event,” said Marc from Cycleworks.
“It’s a popular event and we confidently expect to see it grow each year as the legacy from the fantastic success of GB cycling at the 2012 Olympics in London continues to see the sport growing at all levels.”
Jaguar has been official supplier to the British cycling team, Team Sky, since its creation in 2010 and supplies a fleet of high performance Jaguar XF Sportbrakes to the team. Jaguar showrooms across the country all hosted similar cycling events to the one organized by Westover Jaguar to celebrate Jaguar’s Team Sky alliance.
