WIN a travel bursary for your next cycle tour

Money up for grabs if you can dream up the most inspiring touring plan for next spring

Pannier, a dedicated cycle touring resource and community for travelling cyclists, is launching a bursary scheme for two cyclists who they deem to be planning the most interesting unsupported cycle tours during the Spring 2016 touring season.

With one bursary for the UK & Ireland, and one for the rest of Europe up for grabs, the aim is to inspire and enable cyclists to dream up adventurous touring plans.

At this stage Pannier are asking interested touring cyclists to register on their Bursary page to receive a short application.

Each successful tourer, or group of tourers, will receive £250 and some touring kit from the Pannier Shop, including gear from Bursary sponsors Brooks England, Ortlieb, Thermarest, and MSR.

The deadline for registering is 20 November 2015 so get planning now!

Pannier’s online service offers a Journal for sharing journeys, stories and touring culture pieces; a Prepare section for helping cyclists prepare for their unsupported cycle adventures; a shop dedicated to cycle touring equipment; a Routes app with a library of routes, plus the option to plan,
plot and share your own touring routes; and an Engage section for sharing touring journeys and special moments from life on the road.

    These would be ideal for security in the garage, and out and about for our bikes lost two in the past.

    But if it doesn't look like a car's going to pull up, you find someone in the same-coloured top as you and make them give you their bike.

    Agreed on that, he was definitely part of my first week plans! Not to mention my French riders team - that is in tatters without Le Coq!
