St Elizabeth Hospice supporters are climbing into the saddle for a cycle ride through the idyllic Suffolk countryside on Sunday 31st August.
Starting and finishing at Framlingham College, the event features a choice of two main routes: one is 40 miles, the other a more challenging 80. There is also a short route of 6-7 miles which the whole family can enjoy together.
Joanne Rodger, Events and Challenges Fundraiser at St Elizabeth Hospice, said: “This event is suitable for cyclists of all abilities, from families riding with their children to seasoned riders taking on long distance routes. Suffolk has some beautiful scenery for the riders to enjoy along their way, and we hope that the Suffolk Cycle Challenge will raise thousands of pounds for local Hospice care.”
Cyclists are asked to raise sponsorship, and all proceeds raised will help the Hospice, an independent charity which costs £9.1 million a year to run, and relies on fundraising events, individual donations and income generated from its shops.
Entry for either the 40 or 80 mile rides is £30; riders must be aged 13 or older, and all riders under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Cyclists can register online at the Suffolk Cycle Challenge page.
The family route is just £10, with those under 16 going free.
