Competition: Favourite Cycling Route - Thomson Al Fresco Blog
How do you fancy winning some top of the range cycling equipment?
With the Tour de France now over and another fantastic British winner being crowned, the cycling community continues to grow across the country. Here at Al Fresco we’re well aware of the potential cost associated with fully immersing yourself in this great sport, so we’ve decided to try and help out! All we’re asking you to do is share your favourite cycling route, or the route you want to ride the most, to be in with a chance of winning one of these fantastic prizes.
How to Enter
To enter all you need to do is create a Google Map of your chosen route, and share the link with us through the entry system at the bottom of the page. We’ve even included Google’s very own video on how to do this in this post for those who have not used this fantastic tool before. It should be really easy so go ahead and give it a go!
All entries will then be judged by a panel at Al Fresco, with the top three being shared with our readers and their authors winning one of the prizes we have on offer!
The closing date for this competition is the 13th of September.
