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 hope that you’ll be able to join in and persuade other members of your family and friends to join in too or sponsor you.
As in previous years, the local sports centre in West Kirby is supplying us with outdoor static biking facilities and we’ll try to grab passing victims of all ages, shapes and sizes to join us in relay riding. We’re also urging people to get on their dynamic bikes and pedal away on a real unsupervised ride 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.
Our aim is to cycle ‘virtually’ between 7 key cancer centres in the NW area on 4th September 2021. The route is – Countess of Chester, Clatterbridge, Arrow Park, Royal Liverpool, Christies & back to Broadgreen – a minimum of 171 kms between us, although, with the support of family and friends, we’d hope to clock up many, many more. If you’re able to take part remotely, 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 so we’d really like to finish on the podium.
A suggested donation for riders of £5 per adult and £2 per child would be great, but any support /sponsorship would be welcome – maybe get your family and friends to sponsor you as well, assuming that Covid-induced charity fatigue hasn’t set in! We did think about a suggested donation per kilometre cycled but concluded that this would probably be counter-productive.
