Castles Bike Ride - 1st Sunday in June


25 May 2019

Thinking of doing the medium route?  here's feedback from someone who just gave it a ride...

"I couldn’t resist giving it (the medium course) a go this morning.  What a lovely route!  I normally go UP Smeethes ridge (and down the gravel track).  Doing it your way round is so much more fun.  Everything was dry and clear this morning - and I saw many of your advance notification signs.  Only unforseen obstacle was a bunch of cows blocking a gate.  I managed to talk them round.

Thanks for putting so much time and effort into this.  We’ll get some good £££ for Macmillan if I can get the wife round it next Sunday."

Approximately 240 people took part in this year's event on 2nd June.  The majority of these were on the long route, but just under a hundred did the medium, short and road routes.  Thanks to everyone who took part and especially those who got themselves sponsored or made a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support. We are already planning next year's event for 2nd June.  We will be encouraging more teams to take part and will be offering incentives to participants to raise sponsorship so we can increase the amount we can pass on to help people suffering from cancer.
