Helen Rollason Cancer Charity’s Ride for Helen event is back for 2018 with a new 100 mile route!

To celebrate five years of Ride for Helen, Helen Rollason Cancer Charity (HRCC) has introduced a fifth new route to the event, taking cyclists on a 100 mile ride across the picturesque Essex countryside. Thousands of cyclists from across the country will be meeting at the Crix in Hatfield Peverel, Essex to take part in this fantastic, family-friendly event which offers a choice routes to suit all abilities; six miles, 15 miles, 35 miles, 65 miles, and now for the bravest of cyclists, 100 miles. All ages are welcome to join in as individuals or as a team, and families can enjoy two FREE child places for every paying adult on the six mile route.

Included in the registration price is a fundraising pack, route maps, full route signage, first aid support, mobile mechanic support and recovery, refreshment stops and a medal for finishers. Entrants have the option to purchase a Ride for Helen t-shirt on registration or a special cycling jersey which has been designed for the charity by Scrimitar (available to purchase from www.stores4sports.com).

On the day, participants and supporters will be able to enjoy live music and variety of food and refreshment trucks. All cyclists will receive a medal and a goodie bag on completion of the ride.

HRCC Fundraising Manager Kate Alden says: “We’re so excited Ride for Helen as it is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year. In 2017, we had a record number of participants taking part, raising over £42,000 for our charity and we are hoping for the same in 2018. What’s so lovely about Ride for Helen is that is attracts a variety of participants, young and old and really is a great activity for the whole family. Our routes have been specially mapped out to ensure that all of our participants have a fantastic experience and with our new 100 mile GPS option, there’s a challenge for even the most seasoned of cyclists.”



HRCC is offering an Early Bird registration price of £15 per adult until 13th February.

From 14th February until 30th April the registration costs £20.

From 1st May until midnight on Monday 7th May (when online registration will close) and on the day registration will be £25 per adult.
