Thing are shifting up a gear for the first Cycle Somerset, a challenging sponsored 90 miles cross-county road ride organised by St. Margaret’s Hospice on Sunday 8 September 2013, kindly sponsored by Dyne Drewett.
Utilising existing Sustrans routes, Cycle Somerset will start from the small town of Dulverton in Exmoor and take riders from these beautiful hills, across the Somerset Levels and ending finally at St. Margaret’s Hospice in Yeovil where riders can re-unite with family and friends and enjoy a bit of a celebration!
Brooke Brownlow, St. Margaret’s Hospice Sponsored Events Fundraiser said: “This is the first year we have organised Cycle Somerset. There is a huge interest in cycling generated by last year’s Olympics and recent high profile successes of British cyclists, we have already experienced a lot of interest from club cyclists in the county and nationally and from those people who want to challenge themselves and to raise funds for the Hospice at the same time.”
Participants need to be fit enough to complete the 90 mile course in 8-9 hours. Registration is £25 and cyclists need to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship to take part.
Natasha Hopkins from Dyne Drewett who are sponsoring Cycle Somerset added: “Dyne Drewett have been proud supporters of St Margaret’s Hospice for many years. As a company we are very excited about supporting the charity’s new exciting challenge, Cycle Somerset. “
