Dylan Hartley is getting on his bike to raise funds for Cynthia Spencer Hospice on Sunday, September 25th, and you can join him and thousands of other cyclists, too!
Cycle4Cynthia 2016 takes over Holdenby House as the start and finish for a number of routes, ranging from five, 25 or 50 miles.
Twelve months ago over 1,100 riders of all shapes and sizes, ages and abilities raised a record £76,000 for Cynthia Spencer Hospice, taking the grand total of funds over the 12 years that the event has been staged to over £400,000.
“In 2014 I couldn’t ride because the date clashed with a Saints game and last year I watched from the sidelines having just become a new dad, so I’m really excited to be back pedalling in this incredible event and hopefully encouraging others to do the same for what is such an amazing cause,” Hartley said.
“Three years ago my bike was stolen just before the event, but that wasn’t going to stop me taking part so I borrowed a pink-saddled, fixed-gear bike and still managed to do 25 miles!”
Cycle4Cynthia 2016 coincides with the 40th anniversary of Cynthia Spencer Hospice’s founding, and as well as the entry fees and sponsorship a special commemorative cycling jersey is also available for purchase for £25.
Riders can win trophies for the largest corporate team to take part, the most money raised by an individual, and best fancy dress!
Cycle4Cynthia 2016 is taking place at the new venue of Holdenby House, by kind permission of James and Karen Lowther. Entry is £20 for adults, £10 for juniors and £50 for a family of four.
