Frimley Park Hospital are running a charity sportive this year to help raise funds for their Breast Care Appeal:
There are three routes to choose from include a 12 mile family route, a 22 mile medium route and a 50 mile full route. The routes head out from Pirbright and take you around Ash, The Sands, and into Thursley. All familiar riding ground if you've been on a club ride.
More details can be found on the Ride4Frimley site. If you are planning to take part and you'd like some company, add a post to the club forum and we can organise meeting up for the event.
A Cycle Gathering for Kris Cook
As you may know, a rider on the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, Kris Cook, last week tragically died while climbing Newlands Corner. This Sunday his friends and family would like to invite you to join them up at Newlands Corner, so the cycling community can pay their respects to him. Kris lost his life doing what he does best: taking part in an event to help his chosen charity – Woking and Sam Beare Hospices
Friends, family and fellow cyclists are welcome to join the group and ride from the North side (Clandon) at 9am to the top for a gathering in memory of Kris.
There is a thread in the forum for riders from FCCC to signal that they will be attending. We've been asked to let the organisers know how many riders will be attending for safety reasons. Kris’s family are also welcoming donations to his Just Giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/
