Bristol & Bath-to-London Bike Ride - are you up for the challenge?

8 July 2002
It’s definitely a challenge – cycling 100 miles to London! Whether you are super fit and keen to beat your personal best, or would rather take your time and enjoy the scenery ... this is the sponsored bike ride for you. The Action 100 Bike Ride is raising money for the leading medical charity Action Research. We need more riders to join us and help make this great cycling experience a brilliant success. Held on the August Bank Holiday Sunday (25th August), cyclists start from either Bristol or Bath and take the old coaching road to London, travelling along the A4 through Bath, Marlborough and Newbury. In the morning, cyclists pass through beautiful Wiltshire scenery and rolling countryside. After lunch at Theale, the route continues along minor roads through Arborfield and Twyford and towards Windsor Great Park, through Sunningdale to the finish at Chobham near London. To take part you need to pay the £12.50 entry fee and raise £40 or more in sponsorship for Action Research. All the necessary support is laid on for riders, including a hot shower and a bar at the finish, and return transport to Bristol.

We want the Action 100 Bike Ride to be the most successful ever!” For further information about the Ride please contact Action Research’s regional representative, Nicky Clarke on 01285 711275.
