This year’s ride will again be focused on the north of the Island with a café stop in the stunning surroundings of the Milntown Estate. We have written a few words about the funds you have helped raise to date.
‘Since the James Berry Fund started in 2007 you have raised over £17,000 to help local young cyclists experience racing across the UK and Europe.
Riders that you have helped to gain experience across the UK and Europe include Tom Black, Colum O’Shea, Chris Nicholson, Tim Kennaugh, Chris Whorrall, Jonny Bellis, Jake Kelly, Tom Mazzone, Sophie Black, Leon Mazzone, Owen Dudley and Matthew Drapper.
The James Berry ride not only helps young riders to fulfil their ambitions but also gives the opportunity for riders of all ages and abilities to come together for a ride, café stop and a social get together.’
As usual there will be two routes this year.
The longer route will leave from the Grandstand at 9:00am and be approx 55 mile route.
The shorter route will leave the Mooragh Park at 9.30am and follow an approx 20 mile route to the café.
Sign on sheets will be in Bikestyle from Wednesday 4th October and the cost of the ride is £10. This will give you a ticket to cover refreshments at the café with the remainder of the funds raised going to the James Berry Fund.
We hope to see as many of you out as possible on the day. Let’s hope we get the great weather we have been blessed with every other year to help facilitate a great ride.
