In 2019, we were the proud headline sponsors of The Tour of Britain for the third year running. It’s an eight-stage, 1,250km celebration of the ultimate in sustainable transport – won this year by Holland’s Mathieu van der Poel.
Why we sponsor the Tour of Britain
We believe in being a force for good and powering positive change. As the Tour’s title sponsor, we help fans across the country see the world's best riders competing on their doorsteps, inspiring a whole new generation to get on their bikes. The more of us that get involved, the faster we can speed up our ambitions for a zero carbon future.
Getting even more people into cycling
We champion tech as a way to make cycling more accessible by inspiring the next generation and forming creative partnerships.
OVO Innovation Labs
With the help of former cycling pro Chris Boardman MBE, we hosted The OVO Innovation Labs at Plexal Innovation Centre in July 2019. Open to creative minds in the world of tech, cycling and sustainability, the competition challenged teams to find innovative ways to make cycling more accessible. Check out the three winning prototypes from our Innovation Showcase in September 2019.
Essential STEM skills
We’re harnessing the power of cycling to get more young people into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Our Innovation Challenge asked 11 to 16-year-olds to come up with sustainable solutions to help break down the barriers to cycling – inspiring the next generation to innovate for the benefit of our future. .
