The Ride 4 Maggie’s 42-mile cycling challenge through the Cotswold countryside around Cheltenham takes place this Sunday and is open to all levels of cyclists, over 14 years of age, with a reasonable amount of fitness! Registration is £20 in advance but you can still register on the day for £25, with sponsorship optional but not required.
Jane Fide, Centre Head at Maggie’s and a keen cyclist, said: “We are all getting excited as the day approaches. A big thank you to all those who have already signed up, but we still want to set a challenge to more cyclists across the county to raise awareness of the advantages of exercise and also raise funds for our Centre.”
The day will kick off with registration at Cheltenham Racecourse between 9-11am.
For all those who have friends and family taking part the Maggie’s Centre will be open for tea and cake, between 10am and 5pm, while they are waiting for the cyclists to complete the challenge. There will also be a raffle at the centre with prizes including a free bike service up to the value of £30 from Bicko’s Bike Shack in Gloucester and a voucher for a family bike ride for 3 hours from the Pedalbikeaway Cycle Centre in Coleford.
For more information and to book your place call Jane or Graham at Maggie’s on 01242 250 611.
