Weston Hospicecare has announced its fundraising Wedmore 40/30 charity cycle ride will take place on Sunday 27th September – providing the Government’s social distancing guidelines allow it.
The charity ride was originally due to take place on 5th July but, like many local charity fundraising activities, it was suspended due the Coronavirus pandemic.
The charity ride’s course takes riders through the heart of beautiful Somerset landmarks such as Cheddar Gorge, the Mendip Hills and the Levels.
Riders can choose from a 30, 40 or a combined 70-mile course to tackle while raising money for Weston Hospicecare.
Weston Hospicecare’s Events Manager Grace Dibden says: “It’s slightly later in the year than we had originally planned for, but we are so pleased we have found a new date for the Wedmore 40/30 when we expect it to be far safer for our cyclists.”
“Like many of our fundraising events this year, we were really disappointed to have to postpone the Wedmore 40/30.”
“I’d like to thank the volunteer organisers in Wedmore who started this event in 2018 and are now working alongside the hospice to host a great event and raise crucial funds.”
“It’s a beautiful route and we cannot wait to see hundreds of cyclists take on the ride in September.”
Tickets cost between £4-£35 and sales will be split between the hospice and St. Mary’s Church.
All donations and sponsorship will go to the hospice to support the care given to those with life-limiting conditions.
