Wetherby Cycle Ride 2013
If the great success of the British Cycle Team and the 2014 Tour de France starting in Leeds have inspired you and you would like to get out on your bike, here's an opportunity for the whole family.
The 16th annual Wetherby Cycle Ride starts at 10:30am on Sunday 9th June 2013, from Hallfield Lane, Wetherby LS22 6JS raising money for Cancer Research UK.
This popular event offers a rewarding and enjoyable morning in the heart of Yorkshire's beautiful countryside. Most of the route is on quiet roads and cycle paths over flat terrain with the occasional gentle hill. Two routes are offered: 20 and 30 mile circuits, designed for cyclists of all abilities and open to adults and children from the age of 12 years.
Ann Newton, who with her husband Jeff, organises the ride, says "Last year nearly 200 people took part and raised over GBP3,400.
Again this year we will be supporting Prof Alan Melcher's research at St James hospital, Leeds into how viruses such as herpes can be used in the treatment of cancers. Click here for a report on Alan Melcher's research
The ride is great fun, a morning out in God's own country, back in time for Sunday lunch and supporting a great cause."
Cycling is a healthy, pleasant and non polluting way of getting out into the countryside. If you haven't been on your cycle for years why not dust it off, pump up the tyres and have a go, you'll be surprised how much fun it is".
