My story

[p]RideforEric came about in response to the death of cyclist Eric Codling who was killed by a drunk and reckless driver, whilst cycling on Whirlowdale Road on November 3rd 2013.[/p][p]Eric’s friends and family simply wanted to create an event to commemorate Eric’s life, and originally only expected close friends and family to take part.[/p][p]As word got out, more and more people wanted to participate. Whether it was because they wanted to respectfully mark Eric’s passing, or to simply enjoy a day out in the leafy suburbs of Sheffield and stunning Derbyshire countryside – everyone who participated was free to challenge themselves, and make a statement about cycling safety and society’s attitude to safety.[/p][p]The inaugural RideforEric took place on Sunday the 21st of September 2014 and exceeded the expectations of all involved.[/p][p]The seed of an idea to mark the life of Eric, has created an organisation that not only operates the annual RideforEric event, but also carries out many other activities under the RfE banner.[/p][p]With riders taking part from all over the country, the RfE ride has gained national exposure, with television, radio and press coverage, and was even commended for an award for its phenomenal social media campaign.[/p][p]No one could have imagined all of the good things that have been created in Eric’s name, since that first ride. The trustees have founded the RideforEric Trust, primarily to promote safe cycling activities and maintain a bereavement service, but also to encourage others to create similar events.[/p][p]This year's event take place from Forge Valley School on Sunday 19th May and will once again raise money for safe and inclusive cycling projects, as well as help to support HOPE charity which is a bereavement support group.[/p]

I marshalled at the first RfE. Ridden two of the rides since. Tommorrow I'll be doing the family ride with my Grandson, Stanley, on the back. It's a pleasure to support this amazing event that came out if such a tragedy.
