  • Bora Argon 18 has been announced in the 2015 Tour de France line up along with 4 other wildcard entries including MTN Qhubeka and three French squads.

    The team recently revealed the bike line up and specs, which include the Gallium Pro, Nitrogen and E-118 Next along with the Prologo Zero II CPC saddle and Speedplay Zero Pedals.

    As the only German professional cycling team in the Tour, this news comes after last week’s announcement that live Tour coverage will be broadcast in Germany after a 3 year break.

    Running from Saturday July 4th to Sunday July 26th 2015, the 102th Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 3,344 kilometres.

    We look forwards to seeing the Argon 18 bikes in action!

  • i-ride are pleased to announce that they have partnered with The JRW Group, the company behind one of the UK’s leading cycle insurance specialists – Cycleplan.
    From January 2015, anybody purchasing a new Argon 18, DeRosa or Orro bicycle from an authorised UK dealer will receive 8 weeks free insurance up to the value of £12,000. 

    All the dealer or end user has to do is activate the policy online via a very simple web based form.
    Stores will start to receive unique bike tags and POS to promote this on the bikes over the next few days.

    Paul Butler, Managing Director and Founder of i-Ride added, “The partnership not only gives customers who purchase an ORRO, Argon 18 or De Rosa bike added value with the 8 weeks free insurance trial, but also demonstrates our intention to support the everyday cyclists needs. Some cyclists overlook the need to insure their bicycle, so working with a specialist insurance partner like cycleplan we can work on changing this perception. During 2014 we saw how important this sort of cover can be after hearing from consumers who had either damaged or had their dream bike stolen within a few days of ownership – hopefully by working with Cycleplan we can help with this situation”

    The free insurance covers any bicycle from our three brands for 8 weeks and includes cover against theft, accidental damage and malicious damage on the UK mainland.  This will provide customers with added peace of mind knowing their new purchase is covered and will also help our retailers to drive sales of the three brands and enhance customer satisfaction.

    “The partnership is great news for our cycle insurance brand, cycleplan. i-Ride have already shown their intention to support the partnership by co-funding the promotion of 8 weeks free insurance to their customers. This is a good brand affiliation for all involved and more importantly, one that serious cyclists can really benefit from,” said John Woosey, Managing Director of The JRW Group.
