Leathes Prior is delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Pedal Norfolk cycling festival for the third year running. The event is due to take place on the beautiful and prestigious Holkham Hall Estate over the bank holiday weekend of 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May 2015.
The three day event offers a variety of cycling challenges with the option of 20, 50 or 100 miles on the Saturday and Sunday and 20 or 50 ‘hilly’ miles on the Monday. If you’re feeling brave, you can take on the ‘three day challenge’ totalling 250 miles. The festival also offers plenty of entertainment for the whole family including Norfolk food stands and refreshments, BMX stunt shows, children’s cycle trails, a climbing wall, boating on Holkham Lake, a woodland play area and camping. Once again Emma Pooley, Olympic and Commonwealth Games Medallist and world Duathlon Champion will be joining The Pedal Norfolk Team for the cycling festival and plans to ride the full 250miles.
Last year many members of the Leathes Prior Velo Club turned out on the Saturday and cycled with our guests, making our presence known dressed in our Leathes Prior cycling jerseys. Our very own Paula Lee was one of 79 people to complete the full 250 mile challenge over the three days and finished an incredible third out of all females entered.
We hope to have an even bigger Leathes Prior presence this year and really want to make the most out of our sponsorship. We hope plenty will join us for this wonderful cycling event, created for the sportive rider and their family to enjoy an action-packed weekend on the North Norfolk coast.
