Ride On! A Proper Cornish Bike Ride (Cancelled)

Cycle Sportive , Bude – Saturday, 25 May 2013

Event Summary

This event has been cancelled

Event Overview

This inspiring challenge will see you cycle 140 miles from Bude to Lands End over 3 days, taking in some of the most stunning scenery in Cornwall.

It's not a race, but a chance to take on a personal challenge, have a really great time with a top bunch of people, and help keep Cornwall Air Ambulance flying.

Taking place over the bank holiday weekend 25th - 27th May 2013, you'll ride along the Cornish cycle network on a variety of local roads and cycle tracks, including the scenic Camel Trail. The sense of solidarity and camaraderie between the cyclists will be immense... Remember: this is no race - just Ride On!

The event is open to anyone over the age of 16 at the time of the event, but with only 100 places available, you'll need to register early!

As the event is fully registered with British Cycling, and there will be full medical cover and bike maintenance support provided.

The Route

The first day of the challenge will take you from Bude over the rugged and wild Bodmin Moor, before descending to the scenic Camel Trail through the wooded valley alongside the beautiful Camel Estuary. Your campsite for the night is at Wadebridge, where you'll be provided with a hearty meal. Then there's chance to sit back and relax, or head to the bar and chat through the day's achievements with your fellow cyclists.

At the start of day two, there's a great reason to get on your bike after breakfast, as you'll be having elevenses with our lifesaving aircrew at the Cornwall Air Ambulance operations base. There will also be the opportunity to see the air ambulance helicopter up close and a chance to grab some photos. Hearing about the vital work of the Cornwall Air Ambulance should give you plenty of inspiration to keep pedalling as you head inland to Truro for lunch, then along the Mineral Tramway cycle route into the heart of Cornwall's mining heritage landscape. You'll spend the second night on a quiet countryside campsite with far reaching views across to St Agnes Beacon and the coast to enjoy as you eat, relax and eagerly await the final leg of your challenge.

On the final day, it'll be time to heave ho, weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen as you don Pirate fancy dress to cycle the final 30 miles to Land's End. You'll pass through more striking industrial landscape as you head past the iconic Carn Brea and pedal for the coast at picturesque St Ives. From there you'll cross from coast to coast with St Michael's Mount coming into view as you head towards Penzance and along the promenade. After heading through Mousehole you'll be on the home stretch towards Land's End, where you'll be welcomed by an army of friends, family and supporters joining you to celebrate your incredible achievement of conquering Cornwall!

The Cost

To take part in this awesome challenge, there's a registration fee of £90 per person, to include all meals, a tshirt, campsite accomodation for two nights, transport for you and your bike back to Bude, and all support during the ride.

We'll also ask you to raise at least £150 for the charity, to support our vital work and keep the helicopter flying. We can help you by providing sponsorship forms, collection jars and any fundraising materials you might need to help you hold an event.
