Guy Salmon Jaguar Thames Ditton welcomed back Ride Like a Pro this year on Sunday August 16th.
Thames Ditton saw 60 Lycra-clad men depart from the retailer and embark on a 35 mile cycle through the Surrey hills, including Box Hill which featured in the 2012 Olympic cycling route.
Guy Salmon Thames Ditton's very own Nick Woodward, Carl Harris, and head of business David Edwards lent a helping hand as Team Leaders for the day, alongside Sigma Sport's Ian Wittingham.
The day saw cyclists arrived at 9.30am for registration and welcomed by number of energy snacks supplied by cycling partner Sigma Sport. Guy Salmon Jaguar was lucky enough to have the Team Sky liveried Jaguar XF Sportbrake as our official support car for the day, driven by Guy Salmom Thames Ditton Workshop Manger Stephen Hood.
The fastest group of the day, lead by Ian, arrived back within 2 hours of departure, followed closely by Nick Woodward's team 5 minutes later. Once the rest of the groups arrived back in the retailer, the cyclists were greeted by freshly made rolls from local cycling cafe Giro.
All the cyclists who attended the day, will be put into a random draw where one cyclist will see themselves invited to the Grand Final hosted by Jaguar. The Grand Final will include an array of Driving and Cycling tests, and the Male and Female winner will win a Cycling trip to Tuscany, and a unique Pinarello Dogma F8, which is co-engineered by Jaguar!
With this years Ride Like a Pro being such a success, Guy Salmon Thames Ditton would like to thank all the cyclists who took part in the ride out, and to Sigma Sport and Giro Cafe for their support in organising such a fantastic ride out.
