Last call for riders for Bucks100 charity cycle challenge

18 July 2014

Cycling challenge the Bucks100 takes place in Aylesbury on Sunday 14 September 2014 and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for the event. For a limited time there is 20% off the cost of the ride.

There is a choice of Cool (47 miles), Classic (68 miles) and Champion (101 miles) routes setting out from Waddesdon Manor, Aylesbury.

The Bucks100 charity ride journeys through the quiet lanes of Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire. The undulating terrain takes cyclists through picturesque countryside, dotted with small villages and landmarks.

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 and mechanics. 

Cyclists participating in the Bucks100 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. We are currently offering 20% off the ride fee. Use the code CRC at the checkout. For more information about the Bucks100 ride and to register, visit the website: http://www.action.org.uk /100bucks
