Cheshire Plains and Peaks Cycling Sportive in aid of St Rocco's Hospice - 22 July 2012 This event, entering its fourth year for 2012, has been a great success, attracting keen cyclists and leisure cyclists looking for a challenge. The events of previous years have been featured in national cycling journals Cycle Active and Cycling Weekly and were commended on their quality. The sportive is in aid of St Rocco's Hospice in Warrington and is supported by volunteers and by Broomfields Leisure Centre, providing an excellent start and finish venue. The event offers two routes of 60 miles and 100 miles, both starting at the Broomfields Leisure Centre in Appleton, Warrington. The 60 mile route takes riders through the rolling Cheshire countryside on minor roads, with the main challenge being the climb up and over Alderley Edge, before looping back to Appleton. The 100 mile route initially follows the same route but leaves the refreshment stop at Alderley Edge and takes the riders onto the more challenging climbs of the Peak District, up to Sparrowpit and returning via Buxton, through the Goyt Valley and over the Cat and Fiddle before rejoining the 60 mile route. The event is fully supported with refreshment stops, mobile assistance and a welcome sports therapy massage awaiting those tired legs back at the leisure centre, for an additional small donation. The entry fee is £30 for both distances and, with all proceeds going directly to the Hospice, last year's event raised just short of £10,000. Further improvements are being planned for 2012, following helpful feedback from riders, notably taking riders onto an improved route for the final leg back to the finish point. If you would like to take part or would like to sponsor riders, full details can be found on the Hospice website at . Alternatively, if you want a chat with one of the organisers, please phone Belinda or Ian on 0114 266 4251.
