Sunday, 14th May 2017

A super cycling events open to everyone (aged 14+) amateur or professional

A 10, 20 or 50 mile bike ride around the beautiful Charnwood Forest, the home of Alex’s Wish.  Starting and finishing at The Rothley Village Centre in Rothley, Leicestershire, the route is all on open roads and is well sign-posted and because the event takes place on a Sunday morning the roads tend to be very quiet with traffic.

The circular route starts and finishes in Rothley village and has been carefully chosen to ensure maximum safety and enjoyment.  It is fairly challenging in parts and does include a steep climb up Beacon Hill road, but you can choose to walk this if you prefer.  There are plenty of marshals along the way to give you lots of moral support and encouragement. This is a half-way refreshments stall on the 20-mile and 50-mile route.

At the end of your ride, you’ll get a warm welcome back, receive your medal as well as a chance to take the weight off your feet an enjoy a large selection of refreshments including hot bacon rolls, complimentary yummy homemade cakes and hot and cold drinks. It is not a race, we want you to enjoy your ride and take in the stunning countryside whilst raising money for our fabulous cause.
