Cozens-Hardy are delighted to confirm that the Cozens-Hardy Cycle Ride, in aid of Big C, will take place next Sunday 19th July at Blickling Estate.
Having raised over £1,000 for Big C with the inaugural event last year, we are hoping to build on the success of 2014 and generate even more funds for Norfolk and Waveney’s local cancer charity.
The event offers three scenic 25-mile routes, each starting and ending at the stunning venue of Blickling Estate. Riders can choose which - and how many - loops they wish to ride on the day, a format that offers great flexibility to individuals and those riding as a team. The event will be run under British Cycling rules, but there is no restriction on the type of bicycle you can ride – last year witnessed shoppers alongside mountain bikes and road bikes!
Anna Farquharson, Marketing Partner, commented:
“Cycling is a hugely popular sport and we wanted to structure an event which was accessible to everyone, whether they are a regular cyclist or a novice. By bringing all the loops back to our event village, no one is ever far away from a drink refill, cake or pizza, or their supporters and teammates. We’ve also negotiated preferential rates for Blickling Hall, gardens and grounds for participants and their families, so hopefully there is something for everyone.”
Amy Sale, Big C Community Fundraiser enthused:
“We are delighted that the Cozens-Hardy Cycle Ride is running for a second year. The event format is brilliant and I know that Cozens-Hardy had really positive feedback about the routes last year. We would particularly like to encourage local businesses to enter a team – it’s a really well organised, fun day out in the Norfolk countryside and for every person entered, you are effectively donating £3 straight to Big C.”
Entry to the event can be made on the day or in advance via the event website www.thecozens-hardycycleride.co.uk. The cost is £20 per head, of which £3 goes directly to Big C. Children under 16 years ride for free when accompanied by an adult. If riders want to raise more funds for Big C, sponsorship forms can be found on the website.
