The Ride For Michael Bonney Cycle Sportive
The 2015 Ride for Michael Bonney will take place place from Penrith Leisure Centre on October 4th 2015. There are 2 route options on the day, the long route is approximately 60 miles and the short route approximately 30 miles. Both routes start from Penrith Leisure Centre in Cumbria. The long route initially heads South towards Orton village before looping North to Appleby in Westmorland for the half way food stop. Following the food stop the homeward leg then weaves it's way through fantastic cycling lanes, via Dufton, Milburn and Langwathby.
The route is undulating but does not climb any major hills or mountains. The short route initially follows the same roads as the long route, but splits at Morland Village, taking a shorter route to rejoin the long route at Milburn. The roads are very quiet, super scenic and well worth the trip! Full refreshments are available at the half way stop and also at the finish. Protective helmets are compulsory. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Michael Bonney fund and Epic kidz charity, supporting volunteer groups throughout the North West.
