Team story

[p]The return of the Rose and Crown, Ivinghoe “Basin to Bar Charity Canal Cycle Ride”[/p] [p]An Opportunity To Combine All Your Favourite Pastimes Into A Fun Day Out. Cycling Drinking Eating And Raising Some Money For Cancer Research UK.[/p] [p]Cycle 53 miles of the Canal Tow Path from Paddington Basin, London to Brownlow Bridge, Nr Ivinghoe, Leighton Buzzard, Buckinghamshire and then back to the Rose and Crown, Ivinghoe for a well-deserved recovery. The Route is fairly level rising just 1000 feet (approx. 300m) over the entire distance the only uphill bits being locks and the occasional bridge. There are plenty of café’s, and pubs along the route that can be used as rest stops. Typically, the first stop is at approx. 25 miles (Lock side café) & Berkhamsted (approx. 42 miles).[/p] [p]There’s not a set starting time so you can plan your return journey to suit yourself however, don’t forget for the average cyclist the cycling time will be approx. 7 hours (8mph) (and remember the Rose & Crown closes at 10:30pm!). The recommended latest start at London Euston is 11:00am[/p] [p]No Rail Engineering Works are planned for Sunday 01-June-14 that effect Leighton Buzzard to London Euston so the rail journey shouldn’t be interrupted[/p] [p][b]THE PLAN[/b]: Catch the train to Euston and take a short 3 mile ride along Euston Road and then Marylebone Road, up Edgware Road and hop on the canal at Paddington Basin, then it’s a gentle ride alongside the canal back to Brownlow’s Bridge and back to the Pub.[/p] [p][b]THE ALTERNATIVE PLAN[/b]: For those that feel the 50+ mile challenge is too much you're welcome to start anywhere on the canal from Paddington Basin to Brownlow Bridge (e.g. Kings Langley, Watford, etc.).[/p] [p]Rather than ask people to raise sponsorship we thought it would be a set amount to do the ride. The minimum requested donation is £ 15.00 (rail fare not included).[/p] [p][b]HOW TO REGISTER[/b]: Please donate via this webpage ensuring that your name is clearly stated. It would be really helpful if you can send your contact details to [url=mailto:rcivinghoe@gmail.com]rcivinghoe@gmail.com[/url] in case we need to contact you.[/p] [p][b]CANCER RESEARCH UK [/b]is our 2014 charity[/p][p]Many of us have had family, frieds, work colleagues or even a neighbour affected by Cancer over recent years and felt that we should try and do something to support this good cause. We hope that you will support all of us who are doing different events over the summer to raise much needed funds for this viatl work. Thank you[/p] [p]FULL ROUTE: http://ridewithgps.com/trips/1102860[/p] [p][b]IMPORTANT[/b]:[/p] [p]Participants please be courteous to fellow cyclists and road users alike at all times and follow the Highway Code. This event is NOT a race. All riders are expected to be able to perform minor repairs (e.g. punctures, etc.). All riders should ensure that they have appropriate Public Liability insurance (e.g. membership of CTC, British Cycling, etc.) and/or check their Home Insurance policy.[/p] [p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.[/p] [p]We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p] [p]Any queries please contact: rcivinghoe@gmail.com[/p]
