Essex Villages Ride
Following on from previous successful rides, Afasic is organising a one day, 35 mile (max.) charity bike ride through the Essex countryside, which is now open for registration. I very much hope that you will want to take part.
The ride is taking place on Saturday 13 June 2015, and will use cycle paths and smaller roads wherever possible. We aim to start about 9.00am and hope to be finished by 5.00pm at the latest. Further information will be provided to all participants and the event will have a bike mechanic and support vehicle on hand to keep everyone on the move.
This family friendly ride will start and finish at Writtle College, Chelmsford and there will be free parking available. The start is also easily accessible by train to Chelmsford. The route is currently being finalised and more detailed information and timings etc. will follow nearer the date.
I really hope that you will be able to join us on this ride; it should be a great day out!
You can register here and we will send you further information including a suggested kit list, sponsor forms, maps, fundraising and training tips. All riders will get an Afasic t-shirt to wear on the day. If you are have any questions at all then please contact Mark Thompson or call 020 7490 9410.
For the keener cyclists amongst you, we will also be organising our own longer distance (approx. 150 miles over a long weekend) and tougher ride later in the year. To register an interest and get further details contact Mark Thompson and he will get all the details out to you as soon as they are available.
Please do take part in a bike ride for Afasic, your support really can make a difference.
The organisation really was terrific, we felt spoilt! John
Thank you for organising the ride. I really enjoyed it. I felt really encouraged by knowing the support cars were there if I needed them and our ‘tail end Charlie’, Jonathan was fantastic. Sue
