  Charity Cycle Ride

 

On Sunday 7th September 422 cyclists took part in a charity cycle ride to raise money for ABF-The Soldiers Charity. The cyclists aged for 9 years to 79 Years and over 22,000 miles were cycled over the three routes. The 26 mile route was a flat ride for families and beginners with a 35 mile route that was a slightly more challenging route. The 64 mile route
was for the hard core cyclists taking in three major climbs
of Aston Hill, Bison Hill and Wendover Hill.

 

The event was put on with thanks to our generous sponsors who included Stanbridge Parish Council who donated £1000. These funds were used to put on the community event. The day raised £11500 through registration fees sponsorships and generous donations on the day. 

 

Over 50 local residents gave up their Sunday to help and marshal the event. Parking was provided on the village green and Tony and Laura Brown of Tilsworth Manor also donated their fields. This kept the village of Stanbridge clear from any congestion. The event was extremely successful and is without the biggest event held in Stanbridge. With this being the centenary year of the Great war is seems fitting for Stanbridge which is classed as a "thankful village" to show its commitment to our heroes"
