Honda is supplying a fleet of Pan European bikes to the television company covering the week-long Tour of Britain bicycle race.  

The firm is also offering the chance to win a Honda CB600F Hornet for a year.
Starting tomorrow morning (Saturday), in Scunthorpe and finishing in London on Saturday 19 September, the Tour of Britain sees 100 high-profile cyclists competing for victory over 700 miles around the UK.

The four stages in the northern half of the UK take in Scunthorpe to York, Darlington to Newcastle, Peebles to Gretna and Blackpool and the North West. The Midlands will see the race action on Wednesday 16 September with the Stoke on Trent stage. The Tour then heads south from Wednesday 16 September to cover Frome to Bideford and Hatherleigh to Yeovil, before the finale on Saturday 19 September along London’s Victoria Embankment.

Executive Producer for Century TV - the production company for ITV4’s Tour of Britain coverage - Rohan Browning, commented, “The mobile camera crews are vital for capturing the action that viewers really want to see from the start, finish and along the entire route of the stages and motorcycles are the ideal vehicles for making sure we’re at the heart of the action. The ST1300 Pan European was our first and only real choice, with its smooth ride, superb practicality, versatility and ultra-reliability.”

Honda (UK) is also supporting British-born rider and Olympic gold medallist Ed Clancy to win the Tour of Britain. You could win a ride-out with Ed – and other great prizes including a Honda CB600F Hornet for a year – by entering a free prize draw. The entry form can be downloaded from and submitted at any participating Honda dealer (participating Honda dealers can be found using the web link above).
