Ribble Valley Ride

Rosemere RTWR
News of an exciting new collaboration with the ROSEMERE CANCER FOUNDATION – THE ROSEMERE ‘CYCLE ROUND THE WORLD’ RIDE!

As you know, the Ribble Valley Ride is just one of many fundraising events to have been cancelled in 2020. We wanted to find a way of raising money whilst keeping completely within Government guidelines – and this is it.

For the whole month of September we’re asking you, whatever your age or ability, to get on your bikes and cycle – to help the Rosemere get to a collective distance of at least 25,000 miles – the circumference of the Earth.  And at the same time to fundraise as much as you can.

There will be awards for (1) the most miles ridden by an individual; (2) the highest average distance ridden per cyclist in a team, group or club; (3) the most money raised for the Rosemere by an individual and (4) the most raised by a team, group or club.

How to be part of the Cycle Round the World Ride –

1.  Head to the Rosemere Cancer Foundation page at https://rosemere.org.uk/round-the-world-ride – read the details and then follow Click here to sign up! where you’ll be asked for a few details and a registration fee of £10 (which goes to the Rosemere).

2. Now go to LOVE TO RIDE (Lancashire);  if you haven’t already registered you can do it here.   It’s worth a look around and you could win a Cannondale Bike for registering by 1 September plus other great prizes throughout September.  Once you’ve registered please join the Rosemere Round the World Ride club/group from your Love to Ride profile. This way we’ll be able to easily track our 25,000 mile target and you’ll be able to log rides, connect with Strava and enter the draw for additional prizes as part of Cycle September.

3.  Finally, for the all-important fund-raising bit, you need to go to Just Giving.  Providing you’re already registered there, you can join the Rosemere Round the World Ride event and link to your fundraising page.

So PLEASE – sign up NOW, get your friends to team up (don’t forget the awards for best individual and team mileages) and make a real difference for your local Cancer Treatment Charity!
