A Day of Cycling in Bath on Sunday 30th June 2019Posted on: 10 Jun 2019
Cycling. Good for the health, good for the heart, good for the soul. So those with a predilection for donning the lycra attire, sporting the goggles and strapping on the helmet can enjoy a full-on Day of Cycling in Bath on Sunday 30th June 2019.
What better way to explore some of the most stunning scenery in the city - in ANY city, in fact - than by pedal power? Two wheels have long been favoured as one of the best, most accessible and easiest ways of enjoying the sights and sounds around you, and this day of bike rides will let you soak up the vistas of the city and the surrounding countryside.
Cycling options available will take in 25, 50 or, for the more hardcore cycling acolytes, 80 mile routes, all fully signed and brand new for this year. If you take part you'll benefit from a timing chip to record that all-important time, fully marked routes with back-up route map and GPS files, First Aid support and free event photograph.
Lest we forget that, besides being physically stimulating and rewarding, it can also be hungry and thirst work too, so there will be several feed stations dotted around so you can quench your thirst and line your stomachs with some fine, hearty fare from a range of local food and drink suppliers. Pretty good, eh?
Entry fees are £36 for two long routes; £26 for the short route for adults, £15 for children (including booking charge). Their charity this year is Mentoring Plus, which offers family, educational and emotional support for 7-21 year olds, so feel free to donate to them via their Local giving page when you sign up here.
