Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION - By Laura Mowat laura.mowat@trin­i­tymir­

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.
