Edgar Ride 2013 – Twins Appeal fund-raiser

On April 11, 2013 by IanBoydon










This year’s annual Edgar Ride is to be used to help raise money for two local 16-year-old twin sisters who would like to travel to America for treatment to enable them to walk.


Although the girls – Katie and Emma Sutcliffe – have raised enough for their operation, they still need funds to pay for additional care and treatment.


Riders from Lune RCC will be setting off from Dalton Square at 7.30am on Sunday, 19 May, to take on the club’s traditional Edgar Ride, which replicates the first ever club run in 1949 in is run in memory of the club’s long-standing late President Edgar Philips.


A 130-mile beast that cuts through the heart of the Lakes, taking in the Lyth Valley, Ambleside, Dunmail Raise, Keswick, Whinlatter Pass, Buttermere, Honister Pass, Keswick and returning back via Dunmail Raise.


All riders are welcome to take part. Those who do not wish to take in the full distance can join the ride at Ambleside where the group will be stopping for refreshments at the cafe in Rydal Road at 10am. The ride is self-supported and there will be an additional cafe stop in the north Lakes.


Riders are encouraged to make a suggested donation of £5 (or more) towards the twins appeal, or undertake separate fund-raising. There is a link to a sponsor form at the top of this page.
