Charity rides

This year the London to Cambridge Bike Ride is on Sunday 25 July. Around 4,000 riders take part in this ride each year which, in recent years, has been in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. I enjoy going along to Midsummer Common on the Sunday afternoon for the sheer delight of seeing the thousands of cyclists descend on the common. (We’re hoping to have a Campaign stall there this year. If you could spare an hour or two to help with it, please contact the Campaign via the usual addresses. Thanks.)

New this year, the Oxford to Cambridge Bike Ride is on Sunday 3 October. This is a 75 mile ride along quiet roads through Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Cambridgeshire, in aid of the British Heart Foundation.

Details of both these rides are at: www.bike-events.com
