Make 2018 your year by taking on a coast to coast cycle ride
The Way of the Roses Coast to Coast is a popular route covering 170 miles between Morecambe and Bridlington, passing through the historic cities of York and Lancaster. It’s a challenging but rewarding adventure which will take place in aid of Weston Park Cancer Charity between 14 - 17 September and is organised by local cycling tour specialists, Velo. cartel.
Whatever your experience, this is a supported tour accompanied by experienced guides, and Velo. cartel will provide route planning, source all accommodation (using good quality B&B’S or country hotels), organise full transport (for you, your luggage and your bike), provide mechanical assistance during the ride and offer plenty of encouragement - all you’ll need to do is pedal.
The Way of the Roses tour takes place over three days, averaging 53 miles a day. A moderate standard of fitness is required to enjoy the tour and participants must have their own road worthy bike and helmet (a full check list of equipment will be provided to all participants in advance).
Weston Park Cancer Charity relies on incredible people like you to help in the fight against cancer and they need your support now more than ever. As the only charity solely dedicated to supporting Weston Park cancer patients, the projects they fund provide: practical help to those in need, emotional support to those in despair and enhanced care for those who need it most. And all the money you raise will be spent improving the lives of local cancer patients and their families.
If you'd like to join team Weston Park, the minimum amount you are asked to raise to take part in the ride is £875. Of this sum, £375 is payable to Velo. cartel to cover the cost of the ride, this includes the cost of your accommodation, transport and support. And the remaining £500, plus anything else you’re able to raise, will go to Weston Park Cancer Charity to create a better life for local cancer patients.
Although the sponsorship total may seem a daunting amount to raise, Weston Park will support you every step of the way - you’ll be surprised how quickly your total grows. As soon as you have registered to cycle you will receive a fundraising pack, with a breathable t-shirt, sponsorship forms and fundraising advice and tips to help you on your way.
