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?
