Take On The Challenge: London To Reading Bike Ride
Get stuck in to cycling in 2017! So if one of your goals is to get fit - then how about some added motivation? As the British Heart Foundation are looking for teams and individuals to take part in their 40 mile bike ride.
Leaving London on open, but quiet roads and finishing at Reading's Christchurch Meadows, it'll be a great day out for keen cyclists and beginners too. Especially as the whole family can get involved, the event is open to all, with under 16s being accompanied by an adult.
Experience the buzz of the start line atmosphere, then after leaving London's Kempton Park Racecourse the route follows quiet country roads, with beautiful countryside and picturesque villages providing the perfect backdrop.
It's largely flat and fully signed and marshalled, with first aid, refreshment points, mechanical support and an experienced BHF team supporting you all the way. They can help you train too with full training and fundraising resources available to all participants. And remember, it's not a race, it's about taking part and conquering a challenge to fight against heart disease.
By taking part in the Bike Ride you will be helping the British Heart Foundation to lead the fight against coronary heart disease.
It's the UK's single biggest killer and their mission is to beat this cardiovascular disease with life saving research, with the vision of a world in which people do not die prematurely or suffer from cardiovascular disease.
