Fool’s Charity Cycle Ride – 2nd April 2017

This has become an annual event and everyone is welcome to join us – you don’t need to be a serious cyclist to take part – it is not a race!  Join us on the first Sunday of April to cycle from Drusilla’s Inn to the Six Penny Brewery, a round trip of 12 miles stopping off at a few pubs for refreshments/refuelling.  This is a leisurely route that is designed for fun raising money for The Bournemouth Heart Club!

Entry and sponsorship details can be found below.  Riders not wanting to find sponsorship are welcome to make a donation to take part. Top suggestion: riders wanting to take part but not wishing to cycle the whole way could take a single bike round the route with mulitple peddlers!

Sponsor us online (preferred) at Virgin Money   (if you have problems with the link the web address is http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-web/fundraiser/showFundraiserProfilePage.action?userUrl=fools&isTeam=true
