Maggie’s have asked whether any members of WSCC would like to act as guides at their forthcoming charity cycling event.

The event is on Sunday 28 April 2024, with 3 different distances available. The roads will not be closed for this event, but all routes will be fully signposted. The event page can be accessed here: https://www.maggies.org/get-involved/find-event/surrey-cycle-challenge/

There are staggered start times depending on the distance: 8am (100 miles), 9am (50 miles) and 10am (28 miles). These are the routes:
28-mile route: Maggies 28 mile 2024 · Ride with GPS
50-mile route: Maggies 50 mile 2024 · Ride with GPS
100-mile route: Maggies 100 mile 2024 · Ride with GPS
They are looking for some cycling guides to join them on the day, similar to the role of a ride leader, to ensure participants have a great experience. Someone to be on hand to support participants should they have any issues and for the less experienced riders to have someone to follow and cycle with. They are looking to secure six guides, two per route (and they have already secured three). Last year there were 70+ participants. They are hoping for a few more this year, up to a maximum of 100. All participants and guides will receive lots of fuelling snacks on the day and a lunch stop at their centre in Sutton. They would also be more than happy to cover your travel expenses.

All proceeds raised from this event will go towards supporting Maggie’s at The Royal Marsden, allowing them to support people living with cancer, so they’d be very grateful for our help. More information about their work here: https://www.maggies.org/our-centres/maggies-royal-marsden/
