Cyclists inspired by London 2012 are being urged to sign up for the Cambridge to Norwich Cycle Ride and raise money for a hospital charity.
Entries are now open for the 77-mile route, which is taking place on Sunday, September 30, to help raise funds for the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust charity.
Cyclists can take part either as an individual or as a team of six. Last year 1,000 people took part and a total of £33,000 raised in sponsorship was donated and it was put towards a new incubator cot for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
Starting from Cambridge’s Midsummer Common, the route heads east through a landscape of fenland and farmland before finishing at the Colney hospital.
Beth Coley, N&N fundraising manager said: “This event raises the profile of cycling as means of staying fit and healthy as well as a fun way of getting about. We’re very grateful to those who are taking part in this cycle ride and for getting behind our hospital charity. Every amount of sponsorship, no matter its size, will make a real difference to our patients, their friends and families.”
