Get on your bikes for Myton!
Cyclists across Coventry and Warwickshire are being asked to get on their bikes to raise money for The Myton Hospices.
The charity is holding its annual Cycle Challenge again on Sunday 22nd June and riders are being offered the choice of routes of 45, 60 and 80 miles.
The event starts and ends at Warwick Myton Hospice on Myton Lane and riders can relax and enjoy a BBQ in the grounds after completing their route.
The challenge has previously been held in August but has been brought forward this year to avoid the summer holidays.
Last year’s ride attracted more than 200 riders and raised over £24,000 for Myton!
Myton’s Events Manager Sarah Stallard said: “This is a fantastic and very popular event with three routes to choose from all taking in the beautiful scenery Warwickshire has to offer. Whether you are doing it as a challenge or for fun, with friends and family or in memory of someone you love this is a great chance to get cycling and support your local hospice at the same time.”
This year’s event is being kindly sponsored by Arden’s who are keen supporters of the charity.
Arden’s Director Jon Barlow said: “I was genuinely moved after visiting Coventry Myton Hospice a few years ago and struggle to think of a more worthy cause. Providing the best possible support and environment to individuals and their families at such a difficult time is so important and something that every person should have available. We are pleased to be supporting the Cycle Challenge and hope it is a great success so that Myton can continue helping as many people as possible. “
Registration for the each route costs £25 and includes the BBQ on return and refreshment stops along the route, participants can choose to either raise sponsorship or make a donation in lieu of sponsorship.
