Hop on your bike and do a circuit for Sue Ryder this Sunday – you can sign up on the day!
Ride for Ryder is a great fundraising event happening on Sunday June 29 and if you fancy some fresh air and getting out in the countryside, why not do it to help Thorpe Hall’s £6million hospice appeal?
It’s just £25 to register on the day if you haven’t done so already and you don’t have to be Bradley Wiggins to take part… especially as Johnny Dee from BBC Radio Cambridgeshire (left) is donning his Wiggo outfit to take part in the day!
ESP is backing Thorpe Hall’s Capital Appeal for a new hospice and their latest fundraiser has three different course lengths so there’s something for everyone, from the Sunday afternoon pleasure riders to the seasoned Lycra-clad bikers.
All three routes will start and finish at Thorpe Hall Hospice, giving everyone taking part the opportunity to see just why they’re aiming to raise £6 million to build a new hospice.
There’s a 25 mile route, a 55 mile route and an 85 mile route which takes in five counties. All three have been carefully chosen to avoid main roads where possible and to take in some of the stunning scenery in the countryside around Peterborough. The courses will be marshalled and there’ll be plenty of toilet stops and refreshments on all routes so don’t wrorry!
Organiser Kirsty Clipston told ESP – “Ride for Ryder’s always been one of our most popular events and with the massive increase in the number of people taking to two wheels since the London Olympics we’re hoping this year’s event will be our best ever.
“We’ve chosen three really lovely routes taking in some of the best local scenery. And there’ll be chance to chill out afterwards in our lovely gardens here.
“There are no time limits and it’s certainly not a race so you can bring the family and take the whole day to ride your chosen route if you like.”
