Fairleigh Hospice "Cycle for Life"

E-mail Print PDF

Our latest challenge has been the Fairleigh Hospice "Cycle for Life" which took place Sunday 12th September 2010 in the stunning Countryside of Essex.

This is the second year Sharon and Justine have taken part in this event to support a local Hospice in Chelmsford and this year we welcomed Chris McEvoy to join us.  All completed (in once piece! ) in around 3.30hrs, this included drink stops and fixing a friend's puncture. Our team did not enter any pubs along route (although there were plenty of temptations !!) however, we did take a detour down the wrong lanes...  for 4 Miles !! (hilly ones at that).

So in total the team cycled a grand total of 40 miles. Overall an enjoyable day, harder than last year (or is that because we are one year older ?)

Last year 940 people took part in a day which provided fun for all ages and between them they raised nearly £56,000 in sponsorship. This money has played a big part in funding the care and support, totally free of charge, to local people affected by life limiting illnesses over the past year.
