Just a few days to the Three Counties Cycle Ride which takes place on Sunday 12th June departing from Garth Hill College (please note it is not possible to approach by car via Sandy Lane – please approach via Bull Lane).
If you want to enrol on the day: 18 and Over riders are £25 Under 18 riders are £10. Family enrolments will be entitled to a 20% discount.
If you are a Group Leader or Family Group Leader please ensure that ALL your riders see this information. As a Group Leader you are expected to collect ALL of the t-shirts for riders that signed up with you.
Help us to raise as much money as possible for our nominated charities for this year: Daisy’s Dream, NHS Berkshire Health Care and Easthampstead Rotary Club Trust Fund.
Please encourage as many of your family, friends, acquaintances and work colleagues to join you on the ride or to sponsor you.
Now is a good time to check over your bike and make sure there are no frayed cables, nothing is loose and tyres are in good condition. The most common breakdown is a puncture, so please check you have at least enough tools to carry out a repair. We recommend you have a spare inner tube and don’t forget the pump!
If you do not have some sort of eye protection we recommend you buy some safety specs.
For the event only we have an emergency number: 07835 260107. This number is intended for minor instances (lost, breakdown, etc.). For accident emergency services call the normal 999.
