How late does the bus home run...? :oops:

First time this hasn't clashed with Mayhem for me: assuming I can even look at a bike the following weekend I'd love a go - you'll be able to spot me by the pillow bungeed over the saddle...

:lol:

Wonderful news!

We're doing an incentive scheme for sponsorship.
Hopefully everyone taking part will raise something so we want to give them more reason to do so!

More information on that coming soon!

Thanks again

Tempted by this. Quite tempted to ride back rather than get the bus though.

106 miles is a nice figure for a day ride.

It is just a week after Mountain Mayhem though...

Manchester to Chester isn't that hilly if that helps.
Hopefully a lot less climbs than Mountain Mayhem!

We have over 40 people taking part in The Manchester to Chester Bike Ride so far!

It's a great event for cyclists of all abilities so we're hoping to have several hundred people peddling through Cheshire in June!
If you haven't signed up yet, there's still plenty of time to do so!

We can provide supporters with sponsorship materials and even posters to promote your fundraising!
Please get in touch for more information
