Familiarise yourself with OCBC Cycle route


When competing in an endurance sports event, it helps to know what the route is like.

The organisers of next month's OCBC Cycle have arranged for some participants to take a sneak peek at the layout for the Sportive Ride, so they can find out where the climbs and turns are.

Nine ST readers will get a chance to go on the Volvo Route Familiarisation Rides. This will see participants being driven along the route in a Volvo.

Volunteers will also share safety and cycling tips on how to handle the course.

A total of three sessions will be offered: Two on Aug 15 (8am to 11.30am and noon to 3.30pm) and one on Aug 22 (8am to 11.30am). Each session will take up to three participants.

To stand a chance to win one of these coveted slots, simply answer this question: What is the distance of the Sportive Ride?

E-mail your answer to stsportscontest@sph.com.sg by 5pm on Aug 5. The subject field should read "OCBC Cycle - Volvo Ride". Include your name, NRIC number and contact number.
