BURGESS HILL BIKE RIDE
Sunday 10 June 2001
And other local charities
The ninth Burgess Hill Bike Ride takes place on Sunday 10 June, starting and finishing in the town centre. Entrants can take either the 20-mile or the 40-mile route through the lovely countryside around our town, from Wineham in the west, south along the foot of the downs from Fulking and out to woodland east of Plumpton.
The Burgess Hill Bike Ride is jointly
organised by the local members of the Round Table and the Lions. Sponsorship
money from the event will be used to support the children’s charity Knowles
Tooth, based in Hurstpierpoint, and other local charities.
Advanced booking costs £6 for adults and £3 for children, who must be of secondary school age and accompanied by an adult. Teams of cyclists are welcomed. Burgess Hill Round Table and Lions rely on entrants to collect sponsorship money for their charity work and will be awarding prizes to the best fundraisers. Details will be included in your entrant’s pack.
