Round-the-world cyclist to take on all-comers at the London Triathlon

Specialist cycle insurance provider Cycleguard is set to give visitors to this year’s Virgin Active London Triathlon the opportunity to challenge – and outpace – a cyclist who is attempting to become the fastest woman in history to circumnavigate the world by bike.


Later this year, business leader turned cycling enthusiast Liz Dimmock will set out in her attempt to pedal almost 18,000 miles across 22 countries in 150 days and raise ?1million for the War Child charity as part of WorldRide 2013.

And visitors to Cycleguard’s stand (J30) at the London Triathlon, which takes place at London’s ExCeL Centre on 27 and 28 July, will have the chance to board a Condor static bike and cycle as far as they can in one minute – and beat the distance set by cyclist Liz.


Liz will also join Cycleguard – the official bicycle insurance partner for both WorldRide 2013 and the London Triathlon – to talk about her unique global cycling trip and her fundraising effort. And, in addition to taking on all-comers in the static bike challenge, there will be a prize for the person who correctly guesses the number of metres Liz will travel during her five-month trip.
