I hope this finds you well, & looking forward to a great month of Cycling Events in the region. This July we have a great opportunity at raising the profile of Cycling in the South East – exciting times!
As you may know, we have recently announced that the HSBC-UK | National Circuit Race Championships will benefit from a Club FRRE Ride mass participation event on the Sunday 21st July, ahead of the Medway Big Ride and Elite Women’s & Men’s races. This is a great way of getting new people into cycling, and a chance to ride on fully closed roads which is rare in the busy South East. We are working together with Medway Sport to help recruit some extra volunteers for the day, and to bring in a local feel and representation of the Clubs in Medway and the surrounding areas.
I’d like to ask for your support in sharing the Clubs FREE Ride a little more directly, and personally with your local club / cycling networks, so we can fill this up and make it look great. We have 300 slots available for young riders, and 400 for adults. Pre-Registration is essential and the link is here. This is NOT a race, but a chance to ride with friends and be part of a great event.
I also have some more key info available to you on the three main roles we need (attached) to support the range of activities on the Sunday afternoon. In the description you will see that all volunteers will receive a FREE Lunch from Kings School & all day Volunteers will also receive a FREE T-shirt. Ideally we would like people from 10:00 to 20:00, but would also welcome AM or PM slots too. If you’re keen to help out or would like to get involved to promote your club please contact myself or Helen Steel at Medway Sport on email@example.com to find out more.
Our Go-Ride team will be onsite delivering Kids Coaching, and learn to ride activities so we would love some help from local Club Coaches – this is a great chance to drive recruitment locally – so please contact Tim Sales if you are keen. TimSales@britishcycling.org.uk
If you’d like any further info on the Event Please see the links below, or contact our Regional Events Officer Phil Webber PhilWebber@britishcycling.org.uk
Club FREE Ride. Participants need to be Club Members & have British Cycling Membership (Ride, Race Silver / Race Gold).
Many thanks for taking the time to read, and I hope to see you in Rochester soon.
