Charity bike ride, Sunday 15th Sept 2019, 07.00 hrs dept
Southport to Hornsea 160 miles all in one day, starting and finishing at the official Trans-Pennine trail markers.
Southport – Parbold – Standish – Bolton – Bury – Rochdale – Blackstone Edge – Ripponden – Brighouse – Wakefield – Pontefract – Goole – Humber Bridge – Hornsea
Weather permitting,(if its not too windy) when we get to Goole there is an option to route south east and cycle over the Humber Bridge.
I anticipate there will be a minimum of 2 groups on the day, faster pace and steady pace, with planned stops approx. every 50 miles.
As with previous cycle challenges I have organized, we plan to use the ride to raise funds for “EMpowered people” Disability Cycling Charity. Some of the EMpowered riders will join us from the Rochdale to Brighouse section.
Cannot join us but would like to donate?
The EMpowered Support vehicle (Betty) will be on hand for the day and a nominal charge of £15.00 per rider will be requested to cover fuel and supplies (drinks, energy bars, snacks etc). Many thanks in advance to “The Little Yorkshire Biscuit Company” for fuelling us on our way.
We are going to have a great day on the road. If you’re interested in joining and for more details, logistics and route information please contact Nigel Robinson:
