The annual Hope House Cycle Challenge is back!! The popular challenge will be taking place on Sunday 11th August, starting and finishing at Hope House in Morda.
You can choose one of two routes; 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! A link to both routes can be found at hopehouse.org.uk/events.
Entry is just £25 in advance and every cyclist is urged to raise sponsorship to help Hope House continue supporting local seriously ill children and their families.
Cyclists will be provided with refreshments at a halfway feed station, an extra water station on the 70 mile route and 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 kindly sponsored by Recycling UK Ltd, ensuring that every penny raised helps Hope House ensure that no family suffers the death of a child alone. On-course support will be provided by Trek Shrewsbury, MedAid and the Hope House safety vans.
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.
