Jody Cundy Backs Launch of West Norfolk’s Exciting New Charity Cycle Ride
Building on the growing popularity of cycling, the charity Leonard Cheshire Disability has launched Cycle Together, Sandringham, bringing a brand new and unique cycling event to West Norfolk.
Unlike other similar events, this is perfect for people of all ages and abilities. There are short, gentle rides suitable for families or recreational cyclists, or even people who have never cycled before; while the longer rides up to the North Norfolk coast will challenge experienced club and sportive cyclists.
Another attractive feature is that, although the event is being organised by the highly professional Leonard Cheshire Disability national events team, all the money raised will go to its local respite hotel, Park House, Sandringham.
Norfolk-born Paralympic gold medallist Jody Cundy, who gave up professional swimming to pursue his successful cycling career, said: “I will never forget the day I tried cycling for the first time. I immediately fell in love with it and before I knew it I had broken my first record. I would encourage anyone to take part in this event. Cycling is fun, accessible for loads of people and a great way to keep fit.
Leonard Cheshire Disability’s Cycle Together is a great idea, an opportunity for everyone, beginners and experienced cyclists alike to get active. So why not sign up, get cycling and raise some funds for the excellent work that Park House does for its disabled guests and their carers.”
The routes have been created by experienced local cyclists, and are designed to stay away from busy roads and enjoy the charms of Norfolk’s back roads and villages. There will be free food and drink stations at selected intervals, and there are plenty of great pubs and cafes along the way for those planning to make a leisurely day out of it.
Cycle Together, Sandringham is on Sunday June 23rd, the longest day and hopefully a day when the sun will shine. All rides start and finish in the grounds of Park House at Sandringham. There will be ample free parking, the routes will be clearly sign-posted, and there will be mechanical and medical support along the way for those that need it. Above all, we expect a tremendous atmosphere, with hundreds of cyclists taking part in a day to remember.
The event is receiving generous support from local businesses, including Adrian Flux Insurance, Masterfoods, Stream Foods, Fat Birds Don’t Fly and Steve’s Taxi Service, Dersingham.
