Riding to Oxfordposted on 29 June 2012 | posted in Cycling events
On Sunday 1st July there are no fewer than three charity rides heading towards Oxford.
The longest of those rides, at 80 miles, starts in Bristol and is raising money for CLIC Sargent a charity working with people affected by cancer in children. The ride starts in Millenium Square following a route through the fabulous Cotswold countryside. Details can be found here - http://www.bike-events.co.uk/Ride.aspx?id=344
Also in support of CLIC Sargent is a 60 mile ride from London, setting off from Ealing in West London. This ride includes a stop for lunch by the river at Marlow, before heading up into the Chiltern Hills. For more detail - http://www.bike-events.com/Ride.aspx?id=327
The Jennifer Trust for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) exists to support families and individuals in the UK affected by SMA. And it is to raise vital funds for this charity that cyclists will take part in the 77 mile ride from Birmingham. This is Birminghams biggest bike ride, details available here - http://www.bike-events.com/Ride.aspx?id=326
The rides are all organised by Bike Events, the UK's biggest organiser of fundraising and recreational cycle rides.
All three rides finish at Oxpens Meadow where riders are welcomed by refreshment, live music and a beer tent.
