From May 13, selected stores of the Decathlon chain commenced a promotional campaign… ‘Buy a Van Rysel by Decathlon bike, and get a Gran Fondo Gdynia starter package for free.’
Running from 13-26 May, Decathlon consumers can get a voucher for the €100 starter package to enter Gran Fondo Gdynia in Poland for every purchased Van Rysel by Decathlon road bike. The more technologically advanced road bikes created by Decathlon come under the Van Rysel brand. The major international retailer notes that its Van Rysel products are for ‘amateur cyclists looking for high-end products that can meet the demands of racing reality.’
The second edition of Gran Fondo Gdynia will take place on 1-2 June this year. Participants have two distances to choose from – 80km and 134km. The routes have been marked out in Kashubia, and the start and finish of the competition will be located on Kosciuszko Square in Gdynia. In 2019, the organizers expect about ‘1,500 cyclists from dozens of countries around the world’.
