Event Overview

The 2019 cycle sportive is raising funds for the work done in Bluefields Nicaragua by The Peace and Hope Trust. The people of this very poor town in the poorest country in Central America need all the help they can get. The Peace and Hope Trust does a great deal of work building schools, clinics and skill centres. They also set up and aid local projects to train unemployed people, feed children who would otherwise be malnourished and help protect vulnerable young people from exploitation. Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and the trust does all it can to get the poorest children into education in schools fit for purpose. They send out several containers a year full of donated equipment and materials for schools, clinics and hospitals in Bluefields and other parts of the country.

You can help by riding in the 2019 Challenge for Hope Sportive.

After the success of the last three year’s events by our sister evnt in Gloucestershire, from which we raised over £12,000, we are hoping for a great turnout for this first event in Hereford. The 25, 45 and 65 mile rides will be fully way-marked with free refreshments on all the routes. There will be bacon butties to get you going and a bar and barbecue on your return. The start and finish is kindly hosted by Hereford Cathedral School in Hereford HR4 0PH and the routes will take you through some of Herefordshires most peaceful lanes. There are a couple of challenging hills on the 65 mile ride one of which is the famous Gospel Pass. The 45 mile route is also a good undulating ride and the 25 mile rider is a little lumpy but not that horrendous. Everyone is welcome to this fun day out including electric bikes.

It’s just a £24 donation per household to enter but if you can give or add a little more with sponsorship it would be gratefully received
