We're proud to have sponsored the Cheltenham Festival of Cycling 2017

The Cheltenham Festival of Cycling, which took place on Saturday 9th September, was a huge success for the participants, organisers, sponsors and most importantly for the enthusiastic community.

The Tour of Britain offered an exciting carnival atmosphere to the thousands of spectators across the Borough and Dylan Groenewegen gave the crowd an outstanding experience by winning the stage.

To make it a particularly memorable day for the public, Bloor Homes ran their own competition prize draw where the visitors were asked to guess how many bricks are in a selected home from the Prestbury Chase development in Cheltenham. The lucky winner, who impressed the Bloor team with his precise guess was rewarded with an exclusive £250 Leisure Lakes Bikes voucher. 

Mark Powell, Regional Sales Director at Bloor Homes Western, said: “Bloor Homes is extremely proud to have been the main sponsor of this truly spectacular event, which brought a tremendous amount of deep joy and happiness to the public. 

“We particularly enjoyed seeing these remarkable athletes at such close quarters and especially the incredible performance of Dylan Groenewegen to whom we offer our congratulations after battling through the tough competition and outsprinting the triple stage winner Caleb Ewan and Brenton Jones.”

Commenting on the impressive level of enthusiasm and engagement from the community, Paula Gwilliam, Regional Senior Sales Manager at Bloor Homes Western, said: “It was so wonderful to see the big smiles on the faces of the children dressed up in our Bloor Homes high vis jackets and helmets, who were proudly taking pictures with their family and friends. 

“The inspirational level of involvement from the crowd was fantastic and we had an excellent experience interacting with the public as well as being active supporters of the athletes. It brings us a real pleasure knowing that Saturday was such an iconic event, which will be remembered for a long time by the whole Cheltenham.”
