Cyclists bask in the sunshine at the Heart of England Bike Ride

Solihull Editorial 16th Jul, 2019   0

AROUND 650 cyclists saddled up and took part in the annual Heart of England Bike Ride.

More than £11,000 has been raised by the Knowle and Dorridge Lions-organised event which started and finished at Packwood House on Sunday. The money will be handed over to SoLO Life Opportunities, Sepsis Trust UK and other local charities. Riders had a choice of 20km, 30km or 100km routes which took them through the Warwickshire countryside.

Organiser Lion Paul Wheatley said: “We were delighted to welcome so many riders again for the Heart of England Bike Ride.

“Many riders helped by riding in to the start at Packwood House, avoiding major parking issues.




“We believe we have raised close to £11,000 thanks to the generosity of cyclists and sponsors alike.

“As well as thanking all the riders and helpers I now have to thank the generous sponsors who enabled the Lions to tell riders that all their entry fees will go to the charity partners – SoLO Life Opportunities, Sepsis Trust UK and locally determined causes.”
