THE NEW ELMWOOD CYCLE RIDE 10th May 2009
THE NEW ELMWOOD CYCLE RIDE SUNDAY 10th MAY 2009 IN AID OF THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION
This year the NEW Elmwood Cycle Ride takes place on Sunday 10th May 2009.
Having taken over the organising of the event last year, I am delighted to tell you that through your efforts we raised just over £4500, all for the benefit of the British Heart Foundation. I hope that you will support this year's event and help make it an even bigger success in 2009.
The start point is once again at Wren Hall, School Lane, Wroxall, CV35 7ND, with a choice of two routes of approximately 16 and 30 miles. As you are aware, this is a lovely way to spend a Sunday with friends and family, exercising and enjoying the beautiful scenery whilst raising vital funds for the charity. After the ride you can tuck into a well deserved free Ploughman's lunch. Then, new this year, after your lunch, you are welcome to stay in and around Wren Hall, where from 2:30pm to 5:00pm we will be serving tea and locally made cakes and gateaux at very affordable prices, again in aid of the British Heart Foundation.
Entry form available at the address below, as early as possible.
Prizes will be awarded for the most sponsorship monies raised by an individual entrant and family entry.
Many of the raffle prizes were generously donated by riders and supporters, if you would like to donate a raffle prize for this year's event, please let me know.
If you would like any more information or more entry forms, please contact me either by: Tel: 01926 484677 or 07791 506921 or
email:firstname.lastname@example.org I look forward to seeing you all again. Yours sincerely
