Mac Ride Reminder

Quoting an email from Rob Gullen:

"It's that time again ..... here in Stratford-upon-Avon we are running the MacRide on Sunday 10 September - a 25 or 50 mile cycle ride around quiet lanes in South Warwickshire.

MacRide is in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support in Warwickshire ... and unlike many charity events over 95% of all of the money raised goes to the charity (that's entry fees and sponsorship/donations) - and will all be spent locally.

We have two new routes this year, the 25 is suitable for everyone on any sort of bike - the 50 is a little more challenging (but both routes have some short-cut options!) Riders will all have a detailed, easy to follow route sheet and there will be signage all round the routes ..... and some excellent refreshment stops.

Last year, the first MacRide raised over £10,000 for Macmillan - please help us to beat that this year, AND have a great day out too.

Do put the date in your diary and get your entry in - Stratford is a great area to cycle.

All the details are at together with entry forms to download .... any more questions then just e-mail me at

Look forward to seeing you, and helping us to raise loads of money for an excellent cause - why not get a team together with friends, family or work colleagues?
And finally . . . . . if you can help to promote the MacRide that would be really great (there is a poster to download at the website) or e-mail and we can supply printed leaflets.
Thank you
