FROM SUPPLIED PRESS RELEASE
The summer of 2014 offers a real treat for cyclists in and around London – whether it’s a gentle amble through the great British countryside, or a more intense sprint with a competitive edge, Bike Events has something for everyone.
Bike Events are the UK’s biggest organiser of recreational and sponsored bike rides and they’ve been organising events for over 20 years now. The 2014 calendar is well underway and this year over 50 rides were scheduled to take place.
This year there are five events scheduled to visit the city of London:
London to Hastings – Sunday 29th June
70 Mile ride in support of Abbie’s Army – Fighting kid’s brain cancer
London to Oxford – Sunday 6th July
60 Mile ride in support of Prostate Cancer Research
London to Southend – Sunday 20th July
52 Mile ride in support of British Heart Foundation
London to Cambridge – Sunday 27th July
60 Mile ride in support of Breakthrough Breast Cancer
London to Windsor – Sunday 7th September
A choice of a 29, 37 or 55 mile ride – this is an open event although riders can raise money for their own charities if they wish.
Unlike other cycle events, it’ not a race. Riders can turn up anytime between a two-three hour window and start their ride at the own time, their own pace and with their friends.
Of course, there are still the competitive entrants who relish the chance to race against their friends or club buddies – some of the other events in the Bike Events calendar now feature 100 mile routes with chip timing.
Entry fees range from around £16 to £23 with discounts available for children, students and team entries.
All of the rides are fully-supported with clearly-signed routes, wayside marshals, first-aid cover, bike-mechanics and pick-up vehicles.
At the end of each event riders can expect music, refreshments and performers to welcome them home as they cross the finish line, making it a fun day out for all of the family.
