Inspired by the Women’s Tour, cycling their way through East Anglia this week?
Want to get on your bike and use pedal power to help the world’s poorest?
Well you can – and just after the UK’s first international women’s stage race pedals through Felixstowe, Sudbury, Hadleigh, Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds. You can follow part of the route taken by the world’s elite women cycling from Cheshunt, but at a more leisurely pace.
CAFOD’s Westminster diocese is getting saddled up for Pedal Against Poverty 2014 – and cyclists from East Anglia are being invited to register to take part.
CAFOD supporters will be gathering on Sunday May 18 at Lee Valley Regional Park for the bike ride – and you still have until this Monday (May 12, due to the registration being extended) to book your place!
Of course, the sooner you register the quicker you can start gathering sponsors and really help to make a difference to people living in poverty and hunger around the world.
Anyone and everyone of all ages are welcome to take part in the ride so get your friends and family involved for a fun, healthy and worthwhile day out.
There is a 10-mile ride starting in Cheshunt and a 19 mile course for more experienced riders beginning in Ponders End. Riders on both routes will meet up at the midway point in Broxbourne for a group picnic.
Don’t own a bike or can’t make it to the ride? You can still support CAFOD and those taking part in the event by donating via our justgiving page here.
If any keen photographers would like to volunteer to picture or video the ride, their help would be gratefully received, again please contact CAFOD Westminster.
