Last call for riders for Winchester 100 charity cycle challenge

22 August 2014

Cycling challenge, the Winchester 100, which will take place on Sunday 21 September and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for this fantastic event. There is a choice of Cool (46 miles), Classic (63 miles) and Champion (104 miles) routes setting out from Sparsholt College.

The Winchester 100 charity ride offers a fabulous opportunity to experience a ride in the New Forest. Passing through three counties you can expect some challenging terrain on this bike ride. The three route options take in the quiet lanes of the Test Valley passing through picturesque hamlets along the way.

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 Winchester 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. We are currently offering 20% off the ride fee. Use the code CRC at the checkout. For more information about the Winchester100 ride and to register, visit the website: http://www.action.org.uk /Winchester_100
