Parcours wasfounded in the summer of 2016 by Dov Tate, after discovering that there was something missing from the market; an affordably priced and aero-tested wheelset.

No sooner had we got back from Hawaii, Francis was heading off on another incredible trip, this time to ride 3000 miles across America with Justin Levene to raise money for Get Kids Going. If you’ve been following their journey you’ll know it’s been a tough one in parts but they have also laughed the whole way through it and raised an incredible amount for the charity. Last Friday they finished in Los Angeles completing the ride in 48 days and following this we caught up with Francis to find out a bit more about their adventures.
