Haverfordwest Hornets will be running the Pembrokeshire Charity Bike Ride on 6th August 2017 from the Haverfordwest Rugby Club.
All donations are going to Paul Sartotri, Prostate Cymru & Pembrokeshire Special Needs Gymnastics Group.
In 2001, Phil & Tim Hughes got together with Mark Rendell of Mike’s Bikes and some other cycling friends set up the Pembrokeshire Charity Bike Rode and raised £1080.
Due to this small event being such a success they decided to stage the event again and it grew with the participation of a larger number of cyclists in 2002 and the event raised over £3000 and has continued to grow in popularity every year.
From this, the event has become a firm date in the Pembrokeshire calendar and to date the Pembrokeshire Charity Bike Ride has raised over £145,000 for local charities including Paul Sartori, Ward 10, Pembrokeshire Puffins, SNAP, HOPE, Shalom House, Pembrokeshire Guide Dogs, FRAME and many many more.
In 2009 Pembrokeshire Charity Bike Ride became registered charity no 1131521.
The bike ride is now run by a small committee of volunteers from the Haverfordwest Hornets. They receive excellent financial sponsorship from local companies which means that 100% of the funds raised go to Pembrokeshire Charities.
Family ride to Neyland Marina (17 miles) along cycle path from Haverfordwest – Children go free but must be accompanied by a paying adult. Children will have the opportunity to fund raise and prizes will be given for highest fund raiser among others.
28 Mile route (Middle Distance)- taking in some views and a few hills to stretch the legs. (Under 16 must be accompanied)
50 Mile route out to St Davids and back. (Under 16 must be accompanied)
All routes will be on open roads/paths but marshals will be situated throughout the rides. Bike maintenance will be on hand from Mikes Bikes.
The event will conclude with a refreshments and entertainment.
A great day out for three great causes.
