Freddie's Friends Charity Cycle Ride *** CANCELLED ***

July 17th, 2015

Starting from Asda car park in Bilton at 9am (8am onwards for registration) on the 30th August 2015 , there is a choice of two routes (20 & 40 miles see links) each making the most of East Yorkshire’s rolling countryside, with outstanding natural beauty and stunning views and with no hills along the way this makes the Sportive open to everyone and all cycling abilities.

There will be a mini cycle in the car park if any young budding Bradley Wiggins would like to join in and we have plenty of activities planned during the event.

If you can help this very worthy cause, or know anyone who would be able, please visit the Freddie's Friends web site for further details.
