Unfortunately, due to the yellow weather warning for Sunday, we have had to take the decision to cancel our charity ride. The safety of riders taking part is our main priority. We’re not having much luck this year with this event. We’ll keep you updated if we do decide to reschedule.

Sunday 23rd September

This year we are helping to raise funds for Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire Blood Bikes. This is a local charity which provides an invaluable service and is supported by one of our members Roger Morris. You can find our more here https://shropshireandstaffordshirebloodbikes.wordpress.com/

Event Info:
The event is ‘open to all’ and riders have a choice of 2 routes suitable for all abilities (the family route using traffic free cycle paths over 12 miles will now be run later in the year).  There is a 50 and 63 mile route on roads that will take riders through some of the most beautiful countryside in our region.

Sign ups from 8.30, ride starts between 9 and 9.30

Road routes:
The road routes will take riders out over Cannock Chase and through Abbots Bromley. There riders will have a choice of heading north toward Uttoxeter before turning for Stafford (50 miles), or continuing up into the Staffordshire Moorlands (63 miles) for some seriously steep and challenging climbs.
