Introducing The Golden Bike by BORA-Hansgrohe

To celebrate the 2022 edition of The Tour of France, BORA-Hansgrohe has unveiled The Golden Bike, which is a top-of-the-range racing bike that has been specially coated in hansgrohe FinishPlus Polished Gold – and it will be making its appearance in Clerkenwell, London soon.

The Tour of France started on July 1, 2022 with the premiere stage in Copenhagen, one of the capitals of good design and architecture. To kick off this year’s Tour de France, another design highlight entered into the Danish capital: The Golden Bike, a Specialised S-Works Tarmac SL7, customised in the hansgrohe FinishPlus Polished Gold look.

The bike, a contemporary design icon in its own right, was developed together with various partners in cycling in honour of Matthew Wall’s Olympic Gold Medal. After its debut in Copenhagen, The Golden Bike has continued its tour, and is expected to show up at major cycling events and Hansgrohe WaterStudios over the next few months. After the roadshow, it will be raffled off, and all proceeds raised will benefit Viva con Aqua, an organisation that works to provide access to clean drinking water, sanitation and hygiene. Because clean water is as precious as gold! Tickets for the Racing Bike Raffle are available through the Viprize platform.

By buying a raffle ticket – anyone can enter – one automatically applies to win the Specialised S-Works Tarmac SL7 in Polished Gold Optic.
