A thirteen strong team from Caravan Guard are hoping to raise £7000 in charity donations in the Great Yorkshire Bike Ride on June 16th.
The challenging 70 mile route stretches from Wetherby near Leeds in West Yorkshire, to Filey on the North Yorkshire coast. It is the 29th year that this event has taken place and over £2m has been raised for charity. It is being undertaken by both cycling enthusiasts and brave novices from the company.
Managing Director Peter Wilby, who has completed the charity ride for the last 20 years, had this to say,
“The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride raises money for a number of local and national charities including Heart Research UK and The Yorkshire Cancer Trust, and is something which we are very proud to be a part of. It is a challenging ride to complete and as such we are hoping as many people as possible sponsor our team, many of whom are not regular cyclists. Our target is for the team to raise £100 for every mile, making £7,000 our total target.”
