Parkour Ride are now taking entries if you fancy doing something a little bit different to your usual race, Liam Phillips is flying the flag for the BMX’ers and if you like the idea of giving him a run for his money or seeing if you can beat the fixie/MTB boys then get yourself entered, I think a BMX will be the perfect bike for this event …I might even give it a go myself.
All details for entries and spectator tickets can be found below the teaser vid.
The entry for Parkour Ride is now open and there are more details on the www.parkourride.com site. Entries are £20 for riders and spectators, and rider numbers are capped at 200. With obstacles placed around the course, a BMX – fast out the gate and capable of clearing all the jumps etc – should be the perfect tool for the job.
TICKETS ON SALE FOR PARKOUR RIDE
More details have been announced about the new multi-discipline cycling event, Parkour Ride, which is scheduled to take place in London on 4th October.
The format will see amateur road, BMX or mountain bike riders take part in a time trial with the aim of qualifying for an elimination tournament against pros such as BMX World Champion Liam Phillips. All this takes place in a specially designed circuit in a multi storey car park.
Organisers, FACE Partnership (also responsible for the Revolution Track Cycling Series and London Nocturne), are promising more than just a bike race with DJs, bars, food and other attractions designed to keep the party going into the early hours.
Race entry costs £20 (which also includes your ticket to the event for those that don’t qualify) and is now open on www.parkourride.com. Places are limited to 200 and riders need to be over 18 to be eligible to race.
For those who prefer to watch bike racing and drink beer, spectator tickets are also available to buy online for £20. As an incentive to get them early FACE are covering the booking fees for tickets purchased before August 1st. Find out more and buy tickets on www.parkourride.com.
