Fundraisers are gearing up for a bumper biking challenge in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The charity’s popular Ride for Life event is returning next year and will feature a 200-mile cycle ride across East Anglia. It will take place from 6-8 May 2022 and a one-day package is also available, covering approximately 70 miles.
EACH Events Fundraising Assistant Jessica Mallett said: “It’s going to be another epic event. The ride takes in three counties across three days and is sure to be a very special challenge.
“It’s fully-supported and bound to offer a truly great experience for both keen cyclists and amateurs alike. Friendships will be forged, goals accomplished and memories made – all while enjoying the beautiful East Anglian countryside and raising vital funds for EACH.
“It’s still a few months off but because it’s a big cycling challenge, it would be great if people signed up before Christmas. “That way they have plenty of time to train and fundraise for it.”
The three-day package starts and finishes at Johnston Logistics UK, in Snetterton.
Cyclists will be in the saddle for approximately seven to eight hours a day and dinner, bed and breakfast and luggage transfers are included.
The registration fee is £100 and the target sponsorship £600. Alternatively, a one-day package is available, where the registration fee is £30 and the target sponsorship £150.
There are three options, with day one on 6 May taking cyclists from Snetterton to Ipswich. Day two (7 May) is from Ipswich to Milton, in Cambridgeshire, and day three (8 May) is from Milton to Snetterton.
All cyclists will benefit from a fully signed and supported route, first aid assistance, a back-up vehicle for the full journey, a kit list and training information, daily route information cards, mechanical support, refreshments and lunches along the route, fundraising help and support and a medal.
