Naomi House bike challenge
10:00am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
NAOMI House is inviting the public to help raise money for the charity by taking part in this year’s Salisbury Plain Cycle Challenge.
The 2013 cycling challenge will take place on Sunday, 20 October, in aid of Naomi House and Jacksplace hospices for children and young people.
All of the money raised by cyclists will be donated to the hospices to help them provide care and support for youngsters with life-limiting or life-threatening illnesses.
The challenge consists of three different courses to help cater for all participants including the 20km route for families and less experienced cyclists, while more practised athletes can tackle the 60km route.
Also those with the highest fitness levels can opt for the 100km trail which extends all the way into Hungerford.
Simon Hall, who has been a cyclist with the Andover Wheelers for 33 years, is an ambassador for Naomi House.
All three routes were designed by Simon to be as challenging and satisfying as possible, while simultaneously providing riders with a quiet, peaceful experience of the Wiltshire countryside.
Simon said: “Last year our youngest rider, who successfully completed the 20km route, was just seven years old.
“We also had an 11-year-old complete the 60km route and a rider in his 70s complete the 100km.
“This goes to show that there really is a route to suit all abilities.”
To view the route maps or to register for the event, please visit the Naomi House website at naomihouse.org.uk.
Sponsorship forms, along with fundraising tips and ideas, will be sent out via email upon registration.
