Registration for 2007 British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride now open ~
The 2007 British Heart Foundation London to Brighton Bike Ride is now officially open and anyone hoping to take part needs to act quickly.
If you want to be one of 27,000 cyclists who will take to the road for Europe’s largest bike ride, you’ll need to get your application forms in soon as the Ride is expected to be full by the end of March.
The British Heart Foundation (BHF), the nation’s heart charity, owns and organises the Ride and is the sole benefiting charity. The BHF is committed to preventing people’s lives being devastated by heart disease. Every penny raised will go towards helping the charity find new ways to prevent and treat the condition, as well as supporting all those living with it.
Julie Sorrell, Head of Events at the British Heart Foundation said, “You are still more likely to die from heart disease than any other serious illness, including cancer. London to Brighton Bike Riders are helping us beat heart disease. Last year’s Ride raised over £3.5million and we hope to raise even more in 2007.”
If you took part last year and haven’t yet given in your sponsor money, don’t worry there’s still time. Just send your hard-earned cash to the BHF at 14 Fitzhardinge Street, London, W1H 6DH.
This year, the 54 mile bike ride from London to Brighton seafront takes place on Sunday 17 June 2007.
