Team story

[p]An Opportunity To Combine All Your Favourite Pastimes Into A Fun Day Out. Cycling Drinking Eating And Raising Some Money For Charity.[/p][p]Cycle 50 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 Beer and something to eat. The Route is nice and level with the only uphill bits being locks and the occasional bridge. [/p][p]There will not be a set starting time so you can plan your journey to suit yourself but don’t forget the pub closes at 10.30pm!!!!!!![/p][p]THE PLAN: 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]THE ALTERNATIVE PLAN: 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 which would cover a Beer or an equivalent drink along with a lite bite. The minimum requested donation is £ 15.00 (rail fare not included).[/p][p]HOW TO REGISTER: Please donote via this webpage ensuring that your name is clearly stated. It would be really helpful if you can send your contact details to rcivinghoe@gmail.com in case we need to contact you.[/p][p]MORE DETAILS: http://www.roseandcrownivinghoe.com/News-and-Events.html[/p][p]FULL ROUTE: http://ridewithgps.com/trips/1102860[/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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
