Our 28th Ride for Ryder annual cycling event is back and we’re making it bigger and better than ever!
Supported by British Cycling the new Ride for Ryder Sportive offers a fun event for all with safe signed routes around Gloucestershire’s glorious countryside, all in support of local hospice care.
Starting and finishing from top class sporting facilities at Dean Close school in Cheltenham we’re offering a choice of three sportive challenges – a 23km beginner route, 85km sportive for novice cyclists and 125km route offering a challenge for more experienced cyclists.
Included in your registration fee is rider support from our partners British Cycling, a fundraising pack, a fully signed route with feed station, a post ride food voucher, medical and mechanical support and a finisher’s medal.
We offer the only specialist hospice care inpatient unit in the county alongside our Day Hospice and Hospice at Home services. Your entry fee covers the cost of operating the event, but it’s your vital sponsorship money that helps us to support people at a time they need it most. This year all riders raising over £50 will receive a special commemorative T-shirt post event while those raising over £75 a Ride for Ryder cycling jersey. Both are being exclusively designed by local fashion designer, Melissa Antonious.
With all proceeds going to Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice to help provide incredible care for people living with life-limiting conditions across Gloucestershire why not sign up with friends, family or colleagues and make it a ride to remember?
