The popular annual Hope House Cycle Challenge is back and will be returning to its roots – the original cycle ride to either Lake Vyrnwy or Lake Bala. The challenge will be taking place on Sunday 5th August and will be starting and finishing at Hope House.

You can choose the 56 mile route to Lake Vyrnwy, or the 70 mile route to Lake Bala which returns via Bwlch y Groes – one of the highest public road mountain passes in Wales with a summit altitude of 545 metres!

The event is supported by Mule Cycle Club Oswestry and Stan’s Cycles.

It costs just £25 to register in advance. We also urge everyone to raise sponsorship to help us continue supporting local seriously ill children and their families.

It costs just £25 to register for the challenge. Cyclists are also urged to raise sponsorship to help Hope House continue their vital work supporting children who are affected by conditions so serious they are not expected to live longer than early adulthood by helping them enjoy the best possible quality of life and making the most of every moment with as much happiness and fulfilment as possible.

Cyclists will be provided with refreshments at a halfway feed station followed by a delicious home-made fest of cakes and savouries upon return to Hope House.  Spaces on the day will be available at £35.

Hope House Fundraiser, Lynsey Kilvert, said “Our Cycle Challenge is such a popular event, we see many cyclists returning year on year to take part. Both routes will challenge our cyclists and will really test them. The children and families that we support face difficult challenges every day”.

This year’s event is being supported by Mule Cycles of Oswestry and on-course support will be provided by Stans Cycles, Shrewsbury and the Hope House safety van and first aid car.

Hope House cycling jerseys can be purchased for the cost of £40.   Cyclists can sign up and purchase their jerseys via the online link above or call the Fundraising Office on 01691 671671.
