Over 30 riders, one tandem, on triple bike and scorching weather – Sunday 14 July was a great day for our seventh annual cycle ride, this year covering just over 26 miles through the Warwickshire countryside to raise funds for the Trust. Here are some photographs from the day:
On the sixth anniversary of the death of former BKIT Trustee Gilly Mundy, after whom the Trust’s major project in India has been named, a team of runners including BKIT Trustees Jas and Sangita Mundy (right) braved the rain and freezing temperature yesterday to complete the first Warwick Half-Marathon.
It is still possible to sponsor the team at Virgin Money Giving.
Next year’s Bikes for BKIT Fun Ride, a sponsored cycle ride to raise funds for the Trust, will take place on
Sunday 14th July 2013
This will be the seventh ride we have organised and it again follows the a 26.5 mile ‘Leamington Orbital‘ route that starts and finishes at the Pump Room Gardens in Leamington Spa. The ride will pass Warwick Castle, Charlecote, Wellesbourne and Chesterton Wood, through some of Warwickshire’s most beautiful countryside. The route is paved, fairly flat and suitable for cyclists of all levels.
Registration costs £10 (plus a 90p booking fee), for which all riders receive a BKIT t-shirt, food and drinks on route, an evening meal and a ‘Bikes for BKIT Fun Ride 2013′ participants medal.
To find out how to register online and further details of the route, visit our Cycling for BKIT page.
If you are not a cyclist, you can also register as a Support Volunteer to help out on the day of the event. Support Volunteers help with marshalling at the start, half-way point and end of the ride.
