A five week cycling competition is arriving in Edinburgh this week and will actually include our beautiful, cobbled Victoria Street in it’s race course – quite a challenge on a bike! The Pearl Izumi Tour Series started in Stoke-on-Trent and ends on Jersey, with stages taking place in various cities inbetween. This Thursday, May 29th Edinburgh’s Grassmarket hosts the women’s (5:30 pm) and men’s (7:30 pm) races, plus youth and amateur events are all taking place on the Grassmarket circuit shown below.
Here at The Red Door Gallery we love all things bike, so we are running a bike related competition, the prize being a copy of Rebecca Kaye’s Visual Compendium! More information on the competition can be found by clicking here or the image below:
The rather *exciting* news about Edinburgh’s round of this Pearl Izumi Tour Series is that Thursday 29th May will ALSO see the 2014 (Sir Chris) HOY Tour make its final stop in Edinburgh – adding an extra dash of awe to our fair city. If you’d like to Chris Hoy’s new range of bikes and witness him testing them on an inflatable circut (and who wouldn’t!) come along to the grassmarket on Wednesday May 28th – this is bike geek heven!
50 lucky cycling fans have the opportunity to ride with the multiple Olympic Champion in a prize draw thanks to HOY bikes and Evans Cycles. To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is fill out the entry form here, and cross your fingers.
Our Red Doors will be open late on Thursday, so be sure to pop in and have a peep at all of our bike related goodies, we have a whole section in our online shop devoted to the Two Wheels world! By far our most topical has to be the above interior and exterior of The Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome by Tommy Perman.
