Industry charity Hospitality Action is organising a Le Tour de Cuisine – Cotswold Cycle Challenge, sponsored by Zenith Hygiene Group Plc, which will pass through the picturesque Cotswold villages and countryside on Monday 8th June.

Starting and finishing at the beautiful Beaufort Polo Club in Tetbury, there are three routes to choose from. The short ride, at 20 miles, is perfect for those who fancy a leisurely cycle, taking in the magnificent beauty that the Cotswolds has to offer. For those who are up for more of a challenge, Hospitality Action has also planned a mid-route at 60 miles; and if that’s not tough enough, then the long route at 100 miles might be more to your flavour.

Along the way, there will be feeding stations at the Old Bell in Malmesbury, the Manor House Hotel in Castle Combe and the Village Pub in Bibury, which will offer an array of delicious delights kindly arranged by local hotels.

Ringo Francis, CEO Zenith Hygiene Group says:

“We are delighted to sponsor Hospitality Action’s inaugural Le Tour De Cuisine, and help raise funds for this essential charity. We are purposely offering three different routes to deliver an inclusive event for all levels of cycle enthusiast. It really is a great way to set yourself a challenge. With many participants already signed up to take part, this sporting event is one not to be missed”

Participants who have already signed up include those from Calcot Hotels, London Linen Supply, Unilever Food Solutions, Como Hotels, Exclusive Hotels, The Capital, the City of Bath College and Ashley Palmer-Watts from Dinner.

The event will be a fantastic way to get out, get active and support the industry’s charity, with colleagues. The registration fee is £30, with a minimum of £100 sponsorship required to raise those much-needed funds for Hospitality Action’s cause.
