Coach company official coach travel partner for a major new 100-mile closed road sportive
Lucketts Travel has been named as the official coach travel partner for a major new 100-mile closed road sportive Vélo South in September
Vélo South takes place on September 23 and will see 15,000 cyclists set off from Goodwood Motor Circuit for a 100-mile closed road sportive. Riders will have the unique opportunity to travel through the Goodwood Estate and through the county of West Sussex. Featuring rolling countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs, the route showcases the very best of this stunning part of the country. Riders will then be treated to a grandstand finish at the Goodwood Motor Circuit where they can collect their well-earned medal.
Lucketts will be providing luxurious coaches and mini buses for the debut event across the weekend. The vehicles will be used to transport marshals and ensure rider safety, navigating around the road closures in place.
Jon Ridgeon, CSM Active Chairman said: “We are looking forward to working with Lucketts to make this exciting sportive a huge success in its’ first year. For us, safety is of utmost importance and therefore Lucketts is a perfect fit for Vélo South due to its reputation for providing a first-class, reliable service.”
Ian Luckett, director at Lucketts and an avid cyclist himself, added: “We’re big supporters of any event that encourages people to get up and experience the thrill of cycling. We couldn’t be prouder to be involved with the inaugural Velo South and riders can be assured they’ll get a big cheer from all of our drivers on the day.”
