Bournemouth to New Forest bike ride to take place in aid of the disabled

Bournemouth Echo: Bournemouth to New Forest bike ride to take place in aid of the disabled Bournemouth to New Forest bike ride to take place in aid of the disabled

A CHARITY cycle ride around the New Forest in aid of the disabled will take place later this month.

Cycle Together New Forest starts off at King’s Park Athletics Centre in Bournemouth on June 29, and includes 10, 20, 50 and 100-mile routes into the forest and back.

It is being held in aid of Leonard Cheshire Disability, and funds will go to help disabled people living at the charity’s James Burn House care home in Greenways Avenue, Bournemouth.

The charity’s sports events manager Matt Smith said: “If you can’t take part by cycling, there are still other ways you could get involved. As you can imagine, any event like this requires a great deal of work behind the scenes and we need a band of willing volunteers.”

For more information or to sign up for the charity cycle call 01202 523182 or visit leonardcheshire.org/get-involved/events/cycling/cycle-together

It is an organised event that will be raising money for a worthy cause, how can anyone be against that ? If you don't like it then simply don't take part in it.

Obviously not used to this comments section re cyclists then?

Far be it from me to suggest UKIP out of touch.

And you are obviously unaware of the many comments I have posted on those far to many cyclists articles, most of which I have been in disagreement with and branded a cyclist hater. An organised event happens to be a lot different to allowing cyclist to ride in pedestrianised areas, so one gets my support the latter certainly didn't.

Not referring to urban cycling but the number of protests re Wiggle Sportive in the Forest.

Are the anti cycling in the new forest brigade gonna be up in arms about this event demanding meetings and crying to the police, or do they see this as something that they may (hopefully never) need some when and thus this event suits them..??

So, you're happy for people to drive round Dorset in unroad worthy 4x4s without an MOT, but you have a problem with people raising money for charity?
You really are a credit to yourself.
