Incorporating Europe's second largest cycle race with over 13,000 participants, the Škoda Velothon Berlin is suitable for big and small, young and old, newcomers and riding stalwarts alike. Chain Reaction Cycles' events team will provide our usual high-class retail presence with a great range of riding essentials and some of the top bikes from our Vitus 2012 range, including the Sean Kelly Ltd Edition.
In conditions unlike many other inner-city cycling events, the region's traffic will come to a standstill on Sunday 10th June as thousands of amateur riders take on the 60km or 120km course through the famous parts of the capital city and bordering province of Brandenburg.
As well as the amateur Age Group rides, the weekend will also play host to the Garmin ProRace Berlin, with many of the world's top ProRace teams taking on the 120km course. Teams already signed up include Garmin Barracuda, Katusha, Vacansoleil and Lotto Belisol. Over 250,000 spectators are expected to line the course throughout the weekend, and we cannot wait!
Other highlights include children's races and rides, an extensive expo arena with more than 60 exhibitors and professional talks and seminars offering riding advice and tips. Catering stands will fulfil your every nutritional need – whether you're after a bratwurst or an ice cool beer.
