It’s now just under three weeks until our first ever Charity ride in aid of Rainbow House, if you still need to be inspired to sign up for this worthy charity watch the YouTube video through the link at the bottom of the page and then register at https://www.justgiving.com/Crostonvelorainbowride
The three routes we have planned are all set out below. We have mapped one 100 mile route specifically to appeal to those club members who want to chalk up their first ton, keeping the amount of climbing to a minimum. The 100k ride is also a flat ride and takes the same route as the 100 mile route for the first 35 miles to a cafe at Scarisbrick Marina (other cafes may be available). The third planned route is a more challenging 100 miles route taking in some climbs. Riders can decide on the day which ride they want to do.
All the rides will depart Rainbow House, Salt Pit Lane, Mawdesley at 09.00 after a photo call with the local press and some families waving us off. Depending on numbers we will split into groups of 6-10 and will be looking to nominate ride captains for each group (If you are happy to be a ride captain on the day then please let John Decamp, Kerry Rigby or Dan know so we can set this up beforehand and save time on the day). The rides are intended to be enjoyable for all and riders will not be dropped. There will be sandwiches provided back at the club in the afternoon after your ride and cricket club have welcomed us to stay on into the evening as apart of their social evening to drink beer, although a shower might be a good idea by then!
