2022 Rotary Ride

Once again we’d like you to join us for our West Kirby Rotary Ride beginning at West Kirby concourse on Saturday 17th September at 9.00 am

You can use your/our static bikes or go for a real ride

How’s your cycling? We need you and your bike (exercise or otherwise) as once again, West Kirby Rotary Club is fundraising for PROSTATE CANCER UK, and we would really appreciate your support. We (and others we hope) will be using our road and exercise bikes to cycle ‘virtually’ between 7 key hospitals in the area on Saturday 17th September 2022. The route is  – Countess of Chester, Clatterbridge, Arrow Park, Royal Liverpool, Christies (Manchester) & back to Broadgreen. This will be a minimum of 170.6km between us, although with support of family, friends and fellow Rotarians we hope to clock up many, many more. If you’re able to take part remotely on the day or in the week following, just record your mileage (or should that be kilometrage?), tag West Kirby Rotary on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter with the distance travelled and we’ll add it all together for a final total. It’s part of a national event in late September so we’d really like to finish on the podium. Persuade your family and friends to join in too and donate or sponsor you.

As in previous years, the local sports centre in West Kirby is supplying us with outdoor static biking facilities so you can come along to the West Kirby Concourse Sports Centre form 9.00am on Saturday 17th of September where West Kirby Rotary Club will kick off the week of cycling on two static bikes, outside but under cover, pedalling away in relay, with the distance ridden indicated on our “laser display board”. we will try to grab passing victims of all ages, shapes and sizes to join us in relay riding on the day. Unfortunately, Cycle Team GB won’t be there but you don’t have to be an Olympic cyclist to take part and we’ve had all ages and abilities pedalling in previous years as part of the overall effort. Please come along on the day to support if you can.

We’re also urging people to get on their dynamic bikes and under their own steam (and responsibility), to pedal away on a real unsupervised ride wherever they choose in the fresh air, weather and muscles permitting. If you’d rather use your own exercise bike and get sweaty in front of the telly or in the garden, that’s good too. Please post on Facebook with the distance travelled to be added to the total (photos also welcomed!).

A suggested donation for riders of £5 per adult and £2 per child would be great, but any support /sponsorship / donations would be welcome – maybe get your family and friends to sponsor you as well. We did think about a suggested donation per kilometre cycled but concluded that this would probably be counter-productive.

You can follow us on Facebook from 9.00 am on Saturday 17th September 2022 as we start the week of riding with live videos and updates:
