Our Cotswolds Bike Ride is perfect for all levels of experience. With numerous places to stop in the many villages along the way, and the opportunity to buy lunch and homemade cakes at the popular midway point Winchcombe School, this really is a great day out.
The event will be signed and marshals will be present at key points along the route. First aid support will be present. Free water and toilets will be available at the start/finish location, and there are plenty of cafes and and public houses en-route. Luggage storage and changing rooms will not be available.
Completely planned, organised and managed by the British Heart Foundation, this event exists in order to raise funds for our life saving research. Research that will, one day, put a stop to the devastation caused by heart disease.
Creating an online fundraising page is the easiest way to raise money. It takes a few minutes to set up and a link can then be easily shared with your friends and family on social media and by email. Remember, you're taking part in an amazing challenge - people will want to support you
