Sad­dle up for heart char­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

Hun­dreds of peo­ple have signed up to take part in the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion’s (BHF) char­ity cy­cle ride this week­end.

Par­tic­i­pants can cy­cle 26, 40, 50 or 66 miles around the East Kent Coun­try­side this Sun­day to raise cash for the char­ity.

Last year saw 800 cy­clists come to­gether for The Kent Coast Bike Ride for the BHF, rais­ing over £45,000. The char­ity is hop­ing this year’s event will raise £60,000.

This year or­gan­is­ers are of­fer­ing an on road ride ex­pe­ri­ence, which is ei­ther 50 miles or 66 miles long, as well as an of­froad multi-ter­rain ride at 26 or 40 miles.

This change al­lows riders to start and fin­ish from the same lo­ca­tion at The Univer­sity of Kent in Can­ter­bury so friends can come to­gether at the end of the day to celebrate with mu­sic from The Chill­bil­lies and Indigo Stone and a bar­be­cue. Although online reg­is­tra­tion is now closed for the event, riders can still sign up on the day to take part,with reg­is­tra­tion open from 7.45am. En­try fees are £20 on the day for adults and £10 for chil­dren.
