Lands End to Bristol Cycle – 13th July
Are you up for a cycling challenge this summer? We are looking for elite cyclists or super athletes who would like to join us – cycling from Lands End to Bristol in 24 hours while raising money too!
There is no entry fee for this event, but an expectation that entrants raise a minimum of £500 in sponsorship for Gympanzees which you can set up on our Just Giving page (click the link).
This is an epic bike ride from Land’s End to the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol. In one day you will cover approximately 211 miles – climbing a little under 5000 metres – taking in some of the most beautiful countryside in the South West of England.
We will leave Land’s End at 4.30am, taking advantage of every minute of daylight, heading back via St Austell, Tavistock, Exeter and Bridgwater. Riders will need to be quite self sufficient as possible (although feeding stations and mechanical support will be available); .participants should be able to perform basic mechanical fixes such as repairing a puncture and adjusting brake pads. Riders should be able to follow the route independently either by using a GPS cycle computer (or mobile phone) or paper maps.
It is anticipated that riders will make their own arrangements for transport and accommodation on Friday 12th July.
Information on sponsorship will be sent to you by email after you sign up for the event. Remember you can access our JustGiving page here.
