Various upcoming events

I have been sent details of a number of events which members may like to enter:

The Eden Valley Charity Cycle Ride 

taking place on Sunday 12th June to raise money for the MS Society.

The bicycle ride is a celebration of the fantastic traffic-free quiet and picturesque roads and beautiful sleepy villages that make for perfect road cycling in the Eden Valley. There are three different routes to choose from to suit all abilities and the cycle is not a race; all participants are encouraged to enjoy the day at their own pace. The cycle has been organised by sister hotels; The Fat Lamb in Ravenstonedale and The Kings Arms in Temple Sowerby which means that all routes have the perfect benefit of finishing at the pub!

The three route choices are:

12 Miles - Start and finish at The Kings Arms in Temple Sowerby
24 Miles - Start and finish at The Fat Lamb in Ravenstonedale
47 Miles - Start at The Fat Lamb, halfway stop at The Kings Arms, finish at The Fat Lamb

Entry is £10 regardless of which route you choose. £5 is a donation to the MS Society and the other £5 covers the event costs. Your entry fee includes pre-cycle refreshments as well as refreshments at each of the check points on your chosen route. The event is very relaxed and the main aim is to enjoy the cycling and the company on the day and to pass on the good vibes by raising money for charity while we are at it.
