- Fully guided, with pie guides leading the way
- Support crew, with mid-ride refreshment stop for those on the long route
Itinerary (subject to change!)
Friday 4th October
Cyclists will arrive at their respective start locations to register and meet the pie crew. Our guides will be on hand to help fix any last minute mechanical issues, and after a short safety briefing, the groups will hit the road!
Using quieter roads wherever possible, we will make our way out along the routes. The aim is that all cyclists will finish together in Abingdon for some well-earned post-ride celebrations!
Those riding the 60mile route from Richmond will have a light refreshment stop along the way, and of course our support crew will be on hand on both routes during the ride to offer mechanical and medical support if required.
We would like to gently encourage everyone who participates to donate something (we suggest between £15-20) in memory of Martyn Skinner from the Abingdon office who passed away last month. On his family’s request, all monies raised will be donated to the British Heart Foundation https://giftofhope.bhf.org.uk/Event/Gumtree-to-Motors-Ride
