Way of the Roses Cycle Ride Completed

21 Aug, 2016 | Uncategorized

One of our Parishioners, Mark Fleming, completed the 180 miles ‘Way of the Roses’  coast to coast Bike ride from Morecambe to Bridlington over 3 days from Thursday 28th to Saturday 30th July.

Mark has kindly offered to obtain sponsorship to raise money for St Therese’s church building fund and you can still do so using the parish My donate web site using the following link https://mydonate.bt.com/events/wotrcr  if you are a taxpayer this allows for gift aid. 

Alternatively use the sponsor forms in the porch after mass. Those that have already sponsored but not yet paid can do so by either of the above methods.

Mark completed the coast to coast ride in 16 hours of riding time with over 10,000 feet of climbing. ‘The first day was dreadful with rain starting just after we left Morecambe and  not stopping all day. We were soaked through and the first day had the biggest climbs with the wind making conditions worse for riding.

Rain continued for the first 3 hours on day 2 but stopped by early afternoon and Ripon to York was good riding. The last day riding from York to Bridlington saw beautiful sunshine and warm weather and through some fantastic countryside riding through the Yorkshire Wolds which made up for the first few days.
