Sunday cycle will support Myton Hospices

“AMAZING” Warwickshire scenery will reward cyclists who take on a Kenilworth bicycle shop’s charity challenge on Sunday.

Staff at Mike Vaughan Cycles are inviting people to join them in pedalling either 38 or 70 miles over the Cotswolds to raise funds for Myton Hospices.

Last year, more than 100 people who took part in the event raised £771 for the cause. Matt Clinton from the shop, a former National Hill Climb Champion, said: “The routes are not too hilly. The roads are testing more than anything, draggy and in places quite exposed, but it’s all amazing Warwickshire scenery.”

Every rider signing on will receive a free Torq bar or gel and route map. Further maps and GPS links can be found at the shop’s website.

Those wishing to complete the long route in five hours should meet at Kenilworth Rugby Club in Glasshouse Lane at 9.30am, while those aiming for times of four-and-a-half and four hours should meet at 9.40am and 9.50am respectively. Cyclists taking the short route should meet at 10am. People are asked to car-share if they can.

Entry costs £5, with all proceeds going to Myton Hospices.
