About Prentice Events
| Prentice Events was set up in 2007 |
To use this as a way of raising funds as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle in Scotland, and maybe even help reduce our carbon footprint.
|So, Prentice Events was formed and officially registered as a Scottish Charity (sc039404), the problem now was how to run cycling events that were different and stood out from the rest, and we now have a range of cycle events that are aimed at families or at club cyclists and are in Scotland or international |
