On Thursday 25 April, Porsche Centre Kendal, in partnership with Bishops Chartered Accounts, held our exclusive ‘Pedal Power' event with Ian Bibby.
We teamed up with Ian who is a Pro Cyclist for Madison Genesis and invited guests to take a ride around our beautiful local countryside.
Matt Hallam of Crimson Performance, in association with Push Cartel, was also on hand to give advice to our guests about setting up their bikes to achieve top performance.
Simon Parker (Porsche Centre Kendal's Sales Manager) and Andrew Tabernacle (MD of Bishops Chartered Accounts) led the ride, which included a visit to the site where our new Porsche Centre will be built.
After three hours of cycling, the group headed back to Porsche Centre Kendal to enjoy a light lunch and refreshments. The riders were able to talk to Ian about his recent racing and get tips and advice on how to get the best out of themselves and their bikes.
We received fantastic feedback from our customers, with many saying it was a unique experience and something they normally wouldn’t get the chance to do.
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
