To help celebrate the opening of their new cycle store, Run & Ride are supporting The Hibbs Lupus Trust by organising The Lupus 50, a 50km reliability trial.
Join us for a none competitive 50km ride through the local lanes around Cannock Chase on Sunday 9th September. The event starts from outside the new Run & Ride shop and will head out following a fully signed course finishing back at the store where drinks and cake will be provided.
The route will focus on taking in some of the roads we love to ride ourselves. Based mainly on back roads & small lanes where we love to get away from the traffic of the busy roads, we will head out over Cannock Chase. The course will be fairly hilly to start with but the remainder of the route will be easier and rolling. A course map will be made available soon.
10am – 11am. Once signed on you’ll be free to start at any point.
The event will start outside the new Run & Ride Store. For Sat Nav purposes use postcode WS12 0QU.
Free parking will be available either outside the store or in the overflow car parks situated on the estate a couple of hundred metres from the store.
Helmets must be worn at all times when riding a bike.
A suitable bike in good working order must be used. This doesn’t mean that you must use a Road bike. MTBs and Hybrid bikes are allowed too.
Be aware that the roads are not closed and are open to traffic as normal. You ride the event at your own risk and should take care as you would riding on the road at any other time.
Signing on will be open from 9am and situated inside the store. All entrants must sign on before they start. Entry on the day will be available.
All ride proceeds will be donated to The Hibbs Lupus Trust. On the day entries are also £3 but any extra donations will be gratefully received.
Registration is now open so sign up and enjoy a cycle ride in the company of fellow enuthuiasts whilst supporting a local charity!
Can you help raise money for The Hibbs Lupus Trust? It’s really easy for you to raise money for us by creating an online fundraising page on JustGiving. It takes only minutes to personalise your page, and then family & friends will be able to support you by donating on-line with a credit card or debit card.
We’d like to thank Run & Ride for their continued support and wish them all the best in their new venture!
