Surrey and Hampshire’s largest mass participation charity cycle ride, the Farnham Charity Bike Ride, returns this Sunday – with routes for cyclists of all ages and abilities ranging from a leisurely 16 up to 75 miles.
Entries are still accepted on the day, with the 75-mile route leaving Castle Street, Farnham, at 8am, the 50-mile route at 8.30am, 25-mile at 8am and 16-mile at 8.30am.
But cheaper advance tickets are still available until 11pm on Saturday – and the ever-prudent Chancellor, MP Jeremy Hunt, has already snapped up his as part of the Royal Surrey Charity team taking part on the day.
Mr Hunt said: “It will be great to sit down (rather than run) for my next fundraiser for the Cancer and Surgical Innovation campaign for the Royal Surrey.
“I am looking forward to riding in this Sunday’s Farnham Bike ride – anyone who would like to sponsor me can do so by visiting https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jeremy-hunt3”
Tickets are priced at £26/£36 in advance an £30/£40 on the day – with all proceeds split between organisers St Andrew’s Infant School and Farnham Round Table, supporting local good causes.
All routes are marshalled, with free refreshment points along the way, taking cyclists through the picturesque Surrey and Hampshire countryside. The 75-mile route goes all the way to Butser Hill near Petersfield.
Cyclists are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to their chosen route departing – and register online if possible at https://farnhamroundtable.org.uk/events/farnham-charity-bike-ride/
This year’s ride is supported by gold sponsor EchoMed, silver sponsor Crest Nicholson and bronze sponsor the Farnham Herald.
