Regional charity Autism Wessex is inviting the local community to jump on their bikes for a 30 or 60 mile bike ride challenge taking place on Sunday 15 March.
The circular routes will start at the charity’s Portfield School site in Parley and take in the beautiful New Forest countryside, through Brockenhurst and Burley, finishing at Parley. The route is all on road and fully supported with refreshment stations, signage, mechanical support and First Aid.
Becky Chalk, Community and Events Fundraiser for the charity comments; “This is the second time we have run this event and we are hoping to appeal to a variety of people by offering two routes with different mileage. We are encouraging participants to raise sponsorship for the charity as part of the challenge, with every penny raised going to help individuals affected by autism in our community. We are also seeking corporate sponsors for the event and encourage local businesses to get in touch to discuss the sponsorship opportunities available. This is an exciting challenge for all the family so please come and join us.”
People can register for the event with British Cycling via Autism Wessex’s website, with pre entry for the 30 mile route costing £15 in advance or £20 on the day. The 60 mile route is £20 in advance or £25 on the day. To book your place, please visit www.autismwessex.org.uk or call Becky on 01202 703198.
