Olympic track gold medallists Laura Trott, Dani King and Joanna Rowsell will join Sir Bradley Wiggins and hundreds of riders for the 2013 Ride With Brad sportive on August 11.
Trott, King and Rowsell, who now ride together on the Wiggle-Honda road squad, join Wiggins himself, junior world champion Elinor Barker and European junior champion Amy Roberts on the ride that starts and finishes in the Lancashire town of Barnoldswick.
Three route lengths are available: 50km, 100km and 160km. The event is a fund-raiser for Wiggins' Bradley Wiggins Foundation, which supports the Wiggle-Honda squad. The foundation's wider remit is to promote participation in sport and to provide support to local individuals, groups and communities.
"It is fantastic to be able to ride alongside fans in the Ride With Brad Sportive," said King. "As a team we are really lucky to be supported by the Bradley Wiggins Foundation, so it is lovely to be able to give something back to say thank you."
