Event: 11 May 2014
Ride Chartridge, the first annual cycling sportive to take place in Chesham, will be hosted by Chartridge School on 11 May. The event routes can now be seen here to give you a feel for the rides involved within the overall event.
Delivered in association with IBB Solicitors, the event is organised by parents in support of the school.
The sportive features a 100KM route for the serious rider and a 45KM option for anyone who wants to get on their bike and enjoy a beautiful ride through the Chilterns. There will also be a range of cycling-related activities at Chartridge School for the whole family.
Ride Chartridge is a British Cycling registered sportive, with both rides providing an excellent way to enjoy the local scenery, meet new riders and raise money for the school. Places are still available, so to sign up go to www.ridechartridge.com.
Everyone who takes part can look forward to a clearly signed route with marshalls, a well-stocked lunch stop, electronic timing service, event photographs and a goody-bag.
In addition to cyclists, the Ride Chartridge team welcomes interest from individuals and businesses that would like to help support the event. To get in touch please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
