Bromswold Bike Fest - a Cambridgeshire-based cycling event - is hoping for a record turnout to help it bring its total charity fundraising effort to more than £30,000.
The cycling event, on June 9, now in its fifth year, is once again raising money for MacMillan Cancer Support (Woodlands Centre, Hinchingbrooke Hospital) and East Anglia Children’s Hospices.
With routes ranging from 71 miles down to two miles, Bromswold Bike Fest is designed for cyclists of all abilities and is therefore a great event for cycling clubs.
There is also entertainment for the families and supporters of those who are taking part while they are waiting. As well as music from Huntingdon Music School’s big band HuMs there will be a fete comprising a host of different stands, including a tea and cake tent, a barbecue, an ice cream van, craft and garden stalls, and ‘beat the goalie’ competition.
The event, which is organised and run by residents of the small village of Leighton Bromswold, has seen cyclists of all ages take part; last year the youngest was three and the oldest 82. This year, cyclists undertaking the 35-mile route will be set off by MP Shailesh Vara. Once again, Bromswold Bike Fest is being sponsored by Tesco, Peter Land and Partners and the Pedal Barn, and supported by others including the British Metals Recycling Association.
