Event Summary

Event Overview

This is the fourth running of the sportive set up to honour a local cycling legend and to raise money for the West Midlands Marie Curie hospice in Solihull.

Tommy enjoyed cycling in the Warwickshire lanes and in later years was always keen to encourage other cyclists, either established stars or total newcomers. With this event we aim to replicate Tommy’s experience of enjoying the countryside on our doorstep and his vision of encouraging young riders and other starting out on their cycling journeys.

Our aim for 2016 is to  ‘Pay for a Day’ by raising the £7,321 needed to run the hospice for one day. We did this in 2015, raising over £12,000 which will pay for 11 August 2016, which  is the anniversary of the date on which Tommy won his individual medal for the kilometre  time trial in the1948 Olympics.
