The JLN Saddle Up 4 Skeggy
Published date: 14 March 2018
Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice has teamed up with JLN Plumbing and Heating in Coventry and are calling on cyclists across the Midlands to take part in a fundraising bike ride from Coventry to Skegness on 4th August.
The point-point cycle challenge is being organised to raise much needed funds to enable the hospice to provide more hours of respite, palliative and end of life care to babies and infants with life-threatening and life-limiting conditions and their families.
The one day challenge involves cycling a total distance of 115 miles as a solo rider or alternatively as part of a relay team of 4 completing just under 30 miles each. Registration for the event is FREE with each participant pledging to raise £325 sponsorship and in return the charity will provide a free cycling jersey, meals, a fully sign posted route and the facility to have the riders bicycle returned to the hospice after the challenge has finished.
James Lacy of JLN Plumbing and Heating said:
“As a keen cyclist and regular supporter of Zoë’s Place we were delighted to sponsor this event and a number of the team will be taking part on the day including myself. We’re looking forward to the challenge and helping raise vital funds for the hospice”
Marc Dwyer, Challenge events organiser at Zoë’s Place baby Hospice said:
“I am delighted to launch our bespoke cycle challenge for 2018 which sees us saddle up 4 Skeggy. It’s a tough challenge to complete 115 miles so we have offered the relay option too so I hope the event appeal’s to novice cyclists as well as the more seasoned challenge event participant”
