Charity seeks riders for Peterborough 100 cycle challenge

28 March 2014

Cycling challenge the Peterborough 100 will take place this spring and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for the event on Sunday 13 April 2014.

There is a choice of Cool (46 miles), Classic (64 miles) and Champion (101 miles) routes setting out from The Marriott Hotel, Peterborough.

The Peterborough 100 charity ride takes you through the quiet lanes of Cambridgeshire and the surrounding counties, which serves up a mixture of climbs and descents with ample opportunity to push it on the flat! 

This event is part of the charity’s popular RIDE100 series of one-day bike rides that take place in fantastic cycling locations across the UK. All include chip timing, food and water stations, lunch, marshals, mechanics and friendly Action team on hand for support. 

Cyclists participating in the Peterborough 100 will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children. Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952. The charity is currently supporting work around stillbirth, epilepsy, meningitis, cerebral palsy and brain cancer, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.

Places are limited so make sure you register soon. For more information about the Peterborough 100 ride and to register, visit the website: http://www.action.org.uk/100Peterborough
