Conlon Cyclists take on The Way of the Roses

May 21, 2014 - News

A team of cyclists from Conlon is taking on the “Way of the Roses” cycle ride to raise funds for the Rosemere Cancer Foundation.

The nine riders will begin the 170-mile bike ride on 19th June, and are aiming to complete the challenge in just three days.

The Way of the Roses is a coast-to-coast cycle route passing through both Lancashire and Yorkshire, starting off in Morecambe and ending in Bridlington.

Darren Lee, Divisional Director, said,

None of us are professional riders – we’re all different shapes, ages and levels of fitness – so this is also a great personal challenge for us all.

I’d like to say a special thanks to a couple of local companies who have helped make this all possible including Wallis Cycles who have supplied some new bikes via the Cyclescheme, and will be assisting with special event jerseys and spare inner tubes. Readyfix have also kindly offered us back-up tools and equipment. These donations make such a difference and enable us to focus entirely on raising money for Rosemere.
