CRC CHARITY RIDE 2017

This year’s Charity Ride will be held on Saturday, 8th July 2017 with rides starting from the Methodist Hall, Hallgate, Cottingham (the one used by Cycling UK/CTC). A little different this year, proposal is for three different rides….

Ride 1 – 06:00 hrs depart, 50 miles to Howden

Ride 2 – 09:30 hrs depart, 60 miles to Millington

Ride 3 – 15:00hrs depart, 50 miles to Hornsea

Support at Cottingham will be provided by Beech Holme Tandem Club but the Methodist Hall will only be open from 08:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs.

Donations – £20 entry for the day plus whatever else you can raise can be made direct to the Club account which is TSB Bank, Sort Code & A/C No.  available on request (adam@cottinghamroadclub.co.uk) . This will ensure that all monies raised will go to the Charities and not into the coffers of Internet Charity Websites.

You can participate in all any single ride, any two rides, or even all three – whatever suits you.
