Pedalcover to sponsor the Long Course Weekend

“We are glad to be able to work with such a unique insurance company, providing great cover for our participants.”

We’re delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Long Course Weekend.

We will be the headline sponsor of The Wales Sportive which takes place on Saturday 4th July.

The second event of Wales’ only three day triathlon, the sportive allows cyclists to challenge themselves on one of three different distance routes – 120 miles, 70 miles, 42 miles – across south Pembrokeshire.

More than 7000 participants have tackled the ‘Long Course Weekend’ since it began in 2010, with only around half of last year’s 200 participants completing the challenge and collecting the event’s unique medal.

Darren Thomas, managing director of Pedalcover, said: “This is a great event for us to be involved with as it has really grown in stature since it started. With so many competitors, it’s great for us to have the opportunity to meet so many triathletes so that we can make more people aware of the necessity of having adequate insurance. Triathletes invest a lot of money into their sport so having comprehensive insurance is a great long term investment.”

Scott Powell, events director of Activity Wales Events, said: “We are pleased to welcome Pedalcover to our family of event partners. Having insurance to cover your bike and kit is vital when preparing for an event like this. Damage or theft could seriously set back training and at worse jeopardise taking part, which is inevitably devastating. We are glad to be able to work with such a unique insurance company, providing great cover for our participants.”
