Take a screenshot of your Zwift or Strava performance, post it on your Instagram with #Ride2Unite, and tag We Love Cycling magazine. Describe your virtual experience – and you’re in the running to win. The winners will receive exclusive VIP Tour de France Hospitality Programme packages by Škoda for themselves and a guest of their choice.
So, what is the VIP Tour de France Hospitality Programme? As we’ve explained here, it’s one of the most unique ways to enjoy the Tour de France from a spectator’s point of view. You are there in the Škoda SUPERB iV riding in front of the peloton. Then you’re up in the air, experiencing an incredible vantage point as you fly over the peloton in a helicopter. You land just in time to cheer along at the finish line. This all-expenses-paid trip to France is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Doesn’t that sound exciting? Are you going to join the virtual l’Étape? We can’t wait to see you there!
