PLACES are available on The Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride on July 10th in support of Wigan and Leigh Hospice.

On the way participants will cycle through Tyldesley, Atherton, Leigh, Aspull, Haigh and Standish on the 62-mile route ending at the South Promenade at Blackpool.

Sophie Cannon, Fundraising Manager, said: “The bike ride always has a fantastic atmosphere which is why people come back to do it time and time again. You can take the ride at your own pace so the ride is perfect for regular cyclists but also those who need to take a little longer.
“You will have a great time and you’ll be raising money to help provide hospice care for people in your community. It’s time to sign up!”

The Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride is a ride, not a race, and is open to anyone aged 14 years old and upwards although those aged 14 to 16 years old must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

It costs just £25.50 to sign up but all riders are asked to raise at least £100 in sponsorship to make sure the hospice can cover costs and raise vital funds.

Participants will receive a Wigan and Leigh Hospice branded T-Shirt and free transportation is available for riders and their bikes from Wigan to Manchester and back from Blackpool at the end of the day. The event has maintenance vehicles along the route, so in the event of any breakdowns or problems, help is always at hand.
