Three lucky riders will have the chance to live like professional cyclists for a year thanks to Pedal Revolution's new scholarship programme.

Three keen riders will have the opportunity to be fitted out on a top class bike at Pedal Revolution's cycle studio and use it for the 2017 season in a programme supported by this newspaper and Active Norfolk.

They will also benefit from Pedal Revolution's team of experts to help keep the rider, and their new bike, in tip-top condition.

'We just want to give three local riders the chance to see how far they can go,' said Pedal Revolution owner Neil Turner. 'Ideally you will have done a few sportive events or challenge rides. Perhaps you have started, or restarted, riding in the last couple of years and you are eagerly looking for a boost to help develop you as a rider. You can live like a professional rider for a year with everything that comes with that.'

One male rider, between 5ft 8ins and 6ft (size 56), will benefit from a full carbon fibre aero Cervelo S2 road bike, worth £2,500, and another has been earmarked for a female rider of around 5ft 6ins and under (size 48).

There is also a medium sized Trek Speed Concept Tri and Time trial bike on offer for a male or female looking to develop their triathlon and/or time trialling ambitions.

'These are incredible bikes and will give your riding a huge boost,' added Turner.
