Ever fancied cycling alongside Yellow Jersey winning legends during the day, and dining with Michelin Starred chefs at night? Well, enter le Blanq – a luxury weekend of cycling and gastronomy.
We’ve been involved with some great events over the years but every so often, something really awesome comes around, and this is one of them. What’s more, we’re super excited to be the preferred insurance supplier to the event which means that Yellow Jersey readers are able to access an exclusive discount to the event, more on that at the bottom.
Le Blanq have launched a truly unique event, taking place 25-27 September on the Isle of Wight, the event pairs together the precision and excellence of the worlds of professional cycling and gastronomy for the first time. The weekend has been curated and created alongside cycling icon Sean Yates (Tour de France winning Directeur Sportif) and culinary innovator Ashley Palmer-Watts (former Executive Chef at The Fat Duck Group) to bring together an intimate experience alongside legends.
This first weekend will be led by two of the most charismatic names to grace a bike and the kitchen: 5 time Olympic Gold medallist and Tour de France winner Sir Bradley Wiggins, and the 2 Michelin Star chef and patron of Belmond le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Raymond Blanc OBE.
Joining them for the weekend will be Olympian Joanna Roswell MBE, Adam Blythe, Chris Lillywhite, Annia Emmerson and Matt Stephens who will be leading groups on various routes around the island, fully supported while the chefs prepare the pre and post-ride fuel back in the hotel.
Sound too good to be true? It may well do, but the last few remaining places are still available and as a partner to the event, we’re able to offer you a 25% discount to join the event if you use the code YJERSEY1.
