Event Details

If you click attending please tell us in the comments section where you want to join the ride (Manchester, Hebden, Colne or Settle)

Horton Wimmin's Holiday Centre needs some extra funds to enable it to stay open so we are organising a sponsored bike ride to help out!

The ride takes place on Saturday 21st July, 2012 from Manchester to Horton in Ribblesdale. We have chosen to go via Hebden Bridge as for some people half the ride will be plenty.

The route looks like this: http://bikeroutetoaster.com/Course.aspx?course=200880

Meet 9am The Pankhurst Centre, Manchester
Meet Noon Hebden Bridge (Hebden to Horton: 36 miles)

The route from Rochdale to Hebden will involve some canal paths which are hard paths. I've ridden them on my track and road bikes before however if it's raining very hard we'll probably just take the road.

It shall be hilly and we shall be taking lots of breaks and stops to admire the view (and to get our breath back)! However, please bring a suitable bike- such as a road/touring/hybrid (a clunky shopper or big tyred mtb may make it very hard work). We can loan bikes to people that don't have a suitable one. 

Anyone identifying as wimmin are welcome to take part in our ride (however, if you are wanting to stay the night at Horton WHC please read this: http://hortonwhc.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/policies/#gender). 

I have booked a room at Horton WHC for the Saturday night. You MUST pay your deposit for your stay with THEM directly if you wish to stay (please make sure you tell them you are with the sponsored bike ride) Tel 01729 860207. See prices here: http://hortonwhc.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/prices/
