Cycling for good causes

This article was published in 1999, in Newsletter 24.

Readers of the Cambridge Evening News may be amazed at the number of sponsored cycle rides throughout the year. We know of three organised ones coming up.

  • Sun 6 June – Peterborough Environment Week Cycle Ride, organised by the Peterborough Environment City Trust and Peterborough Lions Club. Rides of 5.5, 15 and 24 miles on the Peterborough Millennium Green Wheel. David Leary phone (01733) 234343.
  • Sun 20 June – Suffolk Premier Cycle Ride. For more information, send a stamped addressed envelope to Suffolk Premier Cycle Ride, c/o 82 Hatfield Road, Ipswich IP3 9AG
  • Sun 25 July – London to Cambridge sponsored bike ride, around 65 miles, this year in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. Well worth going along to Midsummer Common to see the finishers and enjoy the atmosphere, if you’re not joining the ride. Bike Events phone (01225) 480130.
