The bike ride, which takes place on Sunday 29th September, will link the charity's two children's hospices. Last year saw 300 riders take part and raise an incredible £50,000 for Shooting Star CHASE and this year they are hoping to reach new heights!
The Hospice to Hospice Bike Ride is a great way to get together with your family, friends and colleagues. No matter what your fitness level – you can take part and raise vital funds to support local families with children or teenagers with life-limiting conditions.
They're looking to attract cyclists from all backgrounds - not just experienced competitors but families with children who are looking for an exciting activity to take part in.
