Grasp life by the handlebars
Starting and finishing in Dore, the ride will involve up to five laps of a 33.8 km (21 miles) loop. You decide how many laps to ride. One lap will be no easy feat, as inevitably, it involves a few hills. You will, however, be able to take your time, and you can choose to carry on or finish at the end of each lap. Experienced cyclists may want to prove their athletic pedigree by riding all five laps, a total of 169 km (105 miles).
The route includes some main roads and therefore for safety reasons, entry is restricted to riders of 16 years old or over (16 to 18 year-olds will need parental or guardian consent).
The entry fee will be £15.00 and if you wish, you can also raise money by getting sponsorship.
In addition to the health benefits of cycling, think of the feeling of achievement when you walk imperiously through the Rec, knowing you played an important part in its rejuvenation.
