CYCLISTS in Solihull and Warwickshire are being urged to get on their bikes for the Solihull and Warwickshire Bikeathon on July 12 and raise funds for Leukaemia Research.
Starting anytime after 9.30am from Packwood House, entrants can choose from 10, 17 or 28-mile circular routes through quiet country lanes, winding through picturesque villages and past local country pubs. The routes all pass Baddesley Clinton NT House where there is a ‘two-mile optional add-on’ if cyclists would like to visit the house and gardens.
The Bikeathon will be signposted and marshalled, with refreshment stops, and all riders will receive a free T-shirt and medal. Sponsorship raised will help Leukaemia Research find better treatments and cures for people with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.
Alan Latter, Solihull Bikeathon organiser said: “Whether you’re looking for a fitness challenge or a great day out, our Bikeathon can be fun for all the family.”
