Our friends at Pilgrims Hospices have announced the details of this year’s fundraising rides. It’s the fifth year for the events which last year raised a staggering £125,000. Open to anyone who: ‘likes a personal challenge and a healthy day out’, rides costs just £25 per person if you register online before Tuesday April 28.
First up is the Pilgrims Hospices Cycle Challenge on May 3 with a choice of 45, 48, 78 & 100mile routes. Routes will take in the hospices in Canterbury, Ashford and Margate. Cyclists can start and finish at the hospice of their choice can enjoy great refreshment stops and even get a finisher’s medal.
Secondly from Pilgrims Hospices is Divas on Wheels (July 5) a women’s only ride with a choice of 25 or 50mile routes. The start point will be at Biketart, a retailer outside Canterbury and Bike Heroes will be on hand to escort riders and help with maintenance. Once again there will be refreshment stops and ‘Divas Village’ at the finish will be offering massage, helmet hair remedy, BBQ, music and raffles with great prizes. They are hoping to improve on the 260 participants from last year and all finisher’s will get a medal and goody bag.
