TLI Cycling offer easy, accessible access to races for all abilities and this fits perfectly with our philosophy of Lapierre offering a bike to suit every rider at every level.”

Lapierre are offering an overall prize list of £2,000 and the overall series winner, based upon points accumulated by each rider in all of the TLI Cycling age categories, will receive a top range Lapierre road bike. In addition the winner of each age category in each event will receive a special race winners jersey.

Graham Weigh, the series coordinator, explained that “although the 2018 series events all take place in the north west of the UK, TLI Cycling is a national cycle racing organisation and we would like to think that the series could be expanded to cover other regions in the years to come. I would like to thank Raleigh and Lapierre for the interest shown in TLI Cycling and I believe that the series will provide the opportunity for some really exciting cycle racing”.
