Get on your bike for St Elizabeth Hospice

Cyclists are asked to get into gear for a fundraising ride called On Your Bike!, in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice.

Whether you are a serious cyclist or want a family ride out, you will be welcome to take part in the event on Sunday 11th September.

There are three distances and all routes start and finish in the beautiful grounds of the Royal Hospital School in Holbrook.

Choose from:

  • 75 mile challenge  – For those cyclists wishing to push themselves
  • 50 mile challenge  – An intermediate challenge taking in picturesque countryside and villages
  • 11.5 mile –  A fun ride for all ages and abilities

Andrea Chupacova (pictured right with colleague Douglas Flood who is taking part in the event), of St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “This is a cycling event for everyone and we hope we will get a mixture of experienced cyclists and leisure cyclists enjoying the routes we have organised for them. There will be some stunning scenery to take in and we hope On Your Bike!  will raise thousands of pounds to help us to continue to provide services free of charge at St Elizabeth Hospice.”

Cyclists are asked to raise sponsorship and all proceeds will help the Hospice, an independent charity which costs £6m a year to run, provide services free of charge for patients throughout Suffolk as well as support for their relatives and carers.

This is the second On Your Bike with last year’s inaugural event attracting 200 cyclists and raising thousands of pounds.

Entry fees in advance are £15 for the longer rides and £5 for the 11.5 mile circuit. Rides start between 9am and 10am.
