Estate’s charity cycling festival
Penn House to be the base for event
THE countdown is on for the GE Chiltern Cycling Festival, which is set in a country estate.
The GE Chiltern Cycling Festival will be held on Sunday July 12. The cycling event will be supporting Help for Heroes and Leonard Cheshire Disability.
It will take place in and around Penn House, near Amersham, and is attracting cyclists from all over the UK.
Organiser Nick O’Brien said: “Our event seems to have really captured the interest of the cycling community and locals alike so we are delighted that so many of them will be using the festival as a focus to raise money for charities like H4H and Leonard Cheshire.
“The positive feedback we are getting can only help us grow and highlight the Chilterns as a go to cycling destination and we look forward to seeing the imaginative ways entrants can raise sponsorship.”
Besides the cycling, there will be Go-ride coaching for kids, rides, a hill climb, live music, vintage fayre and other stalls.
The event will feature a 30-mile, 60-mile and 100mile route.
GE Charity coordinator, Bernhard Warr, said: “Once again the GE Chiltern Cycling festival is providing the chance for both our local communities and employees from all over the UK to get involved in an exciting day of cycling action and family fun, whilst supporting the incredible work of Help for Heroes.
“We are looking forward to another successful event for everyone.”
Blaser Mills the sponsors event.
Event organiser Rob Askey said: “As a law firm based in London as well as the Chilterns, Blaser Mills is the perfect partner to help us deliver two memorable days of cycling for every level of rider ability and by supporting Leonard Cheshire Disability we hope that our events help in some way to highlight the work of this amazing charity.”
The festival will also hold a Velo Classique event at Chenies Manor on Monday, August 31.
