Where and when is the cycle ride?

On the Saturday and Sunday 11th & 12th November 2017 and Samuel will be riding continuously from 6 AM to 6 PM from the Exeter Cricket Club up to Tiverton and back again.  It's about 40 miles. He is hoping to do 5 or 6 loops each day.

1.  Social Group Ride

At about noon on both the Saturday and Sunday, he will set off from Heathcoat Cricket Club for a "Social Group Ride" down to the Exeter Cricket Club for coffee and cake and then back to Heathcoat CC for more cake.  You can join him one way or both ways as you wish.

The aim is to average about 12mph (19kph) and to cover the loop once. If you have a bike then please come and join him!  It will be a very social ride and it will make the 24 hour effort far more entertaining!

To join the ride, please make a donation of £10 or more and leave a note on your comments box to say you will be coming along so we know to expect you (and your friends and family).

2.  Serious riders wanted

Or… if you would like to do more than just the one loop, then feel free to cycle with Samuel in either the morning session or in the final two hours of the day.  Riding will be paced at about 17/18 mph (28kph).

To join him, please make a donation of £10 or more for each lap and leave a note on your comments box to say you will be coming along so we know to expect you (and your friends and family).

Alternatively, start your own Virgin Money Giving page and raise your own sponsorship for the Trust.

The aim of the ride is to ride as far as possible over a 24-hour period and raise as much money as possible for the David Shepherd Cricket Trust.

Please go to Samuel's Virgin Money Giving page to donate.  Thank you.
