The Farnham Charity Bike Ride is back on! (sort of...)
As you are no doubt aware, the government recently relaxed the restrictions on the amount of exercise you can take in a day, and how far you are allowed to travel to do it. This has given us bike ride planners an idea.
On the weekend of 4th/5th July 2020, we will to mark out both the 16 mile, and the 25 mile Farnham Charity Bike Ride routes with the usual arrows and signs. You can already view the routes on Strava, and we will also make them available via Google Maps, so you can print off directions.
There will be no marshals. There will be no defined start or finish. There will be no medals. You will be undertaking this activity at your own risk, and will need to ensure that you follow the social distancing guidelines in place on the day.
This will not be an event as usual.
However, we imagine that many of you are itching to "get out there" and do something a little different; on your own, or with your families. And we think that a cycle ride could be just the thing.
We will open up a no obligation donation page accepting donations towards our usual good causes. If you feel able to, and if you want to, any donations large or small would be greatly appreciated.
The donations will be split 50:50 between St. Andrews Infant School, and the Farnham Round Table. St. Andrews will use the money to buy books, and provide valuable resources for their pupils. Farnham Round Table distributes funds to local good causes. For example, its members recently donated £1,000 to the Farnham COVID-19 action fund.
Whether you donate or not, the routes will be signposted, the roads will be open, and the sun will may be out.
