Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride

Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride

Event date: 08 July 2018

For over 20 years, thousands of riders have raised money for Wigan & Leigh Hospice by riding the 63 mile route from the city to the seaside.

Join hundreds of other riders on this exhilarating and fun-filled day and raise money for the Hospice at the same time.

We provide all our riders with a T-Shirt to wear on the day, refreshments (including pies, pasties, sandwiches, chocolates and drinks) at two rest stops en-route and transportation for you and your bike from Wigan to Manchester and back from Blackpool at the end of the day.

At the finish line, a welcome party will await you with a well-deserved medal.

We also have maintenance vehicles out along the route, so in the event of any breakdowns or problems, help is always at hand.

Entry Fee

The entry fee is £20, which includes your T-shirt, refreshments, transportation and medal.


We ask that all our riders try to raise at least £100 from sponsorship.

This will ensure you help us to continue providing specialist care and support to patients living with a life-limiting illness and their families and loved ones from across the borough.

To register your interest please contact the fundraising team: or telephone 01942 525566. Alternatively, sign up online:
