Welcome to the Century Cycle Challenge 2016 Charity Bike Ride
10th Anniversary Ride for:
Saturday 30th April 2016, Nevill Holt to Brancaster Staithe
In 2006, a group of friend’s set off on a 102-mile cycle ride from Cossington, Leicestershire to Brancaster Staithe, Norfolk to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer relief.
They were inspired to raise funds following the diagnosis, and subsequent successful treatment, of a friend’s four-year-old daughter with Leukemia. The total raised exceeded all expectations and with a party afterwards, the event was a resounding success.
No future plans were set at that time but the riders were back in strength two years later when another young family friend was also diagnosed with Leukemia, who was again successfully treated at Leicester Royal Infirmary. Another fabulous cycle ride and celebration at the Jolly Sailors ensured that the ride would become a regular event.
As the participation of the ride has grown each year, a number of charities have been supported and well over £1M has now been raised directly from the ride.
For the 10th Anniversary ride we will be returning again to where it all started and riding to the Jolly Sailor, Brancaster Staithe. Children and Leukaemia Research have always been at the heart of these fun rides and as a result the CCC is supporting one charity for 2016, which is Bloodwise - https://bloodwise.org.uk - Beating blood cancer since 1960.
Whilst there is no obligation to raise money for charity, this is a charity bike so we would anticipate you raising some money for your chosen charity. We would however dearly love you to raise money for Bloodwise – https://bloodwise.org.uk (Previously known as Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research).
The changes made for the 2015 ride will continue for the next ride on the 30th April apart from one little tweak. As it is the 10th Anniversary the 100 mile ride will be 110 miles: -
- Entry fees – £45 per rider for 110 miles, £30 per rider for 50 miles, £20 for 25 miles.
- The ride will end at The Jolly Sailors where there will be a cash bar, BBQ food to purchase and a heated marquee. This is open to all. Tickets are not necessary so stay and enjoy the party atmosphere at The Jolly Sailors for as long as you wish
- No official CCC shirt or Gilet. Riders will however be given a simple item at registration which will enable the mechanics and other riders to identify CCC participants
- No charity auction
Participants can choose from 3 distances – 110 miles, 50 miles and 25 miles
The 50 mile and 25 mile routes will both start from the car park behind The Jolly Sailors, Brancaster Staithe. Similar to the long route, bacon sandwiches, teas and coffees will be provided at the start for the riders along with a registration tent and starting gates to send riders on their way.
