A good friend of mine, has been asked to raise funds for a local charity by organising a cycling event. If you believe you’ll be finding yourself anywhere near Cardiff on Sunday 23rd of September, then do consider taking part in the ride.
The funds will help support the work of the local Ty Hapus charity. The charity looks after those with an early onset of Alzheimer’s disease and provides a lifeline for the families caring for those suffering with dementia through care and support.
Full details can be found on the British Cycling website, where you can also register to take part.
The route is 75 miles in length and starts at he Millennium Stadium in the centre of Cardiff. It’s a hilly route with plenty of fast descents. It affords many breathtaking views of the area, especially in the direction of the famous Brecon Beacons.
It costs £25.60 to enter, all proceeds aside from a small fee for British Cycling go to the charity. You’ll be given a time chip to record your time and they’ll also be feed stations, first aid and mechanical support. The route will be sign posted, so you won’t spend the entire time fiddling around with a map.
