A message from the James Berry Fund:
This will be our 10th year of running the JB fund, we will be doing a ride on the 21st October 2017. This year's ride will again be focused on the north of the Island with a café stop in the stunning surroundings of the Milntown Estate. We have written a few words about the funds you have helped raise to date.
'Since the James Berry Fund started in 2007 you have raised over £18,000 to help local young cyclists experience racing across the UK and Europe.
We have helped 13 riders to gain experience across the UK and Europe.
The James Berry ride not only helps young riders to fulfil their ambitions but also gives the opportunity for riders of all ages and abilities to come together for a ride, café stop and a social get together.'
As usual there will be two routes this year.
The longer route will leave from the Grandstand at 9:00am and be approx 55 mile route.
The shorter route will leave the Mooragh Park at 9.30am and follow an approx 20 mile route to the café.
Sign on sheets will be in Bikestyle from lunch time on the Thursday 5th October and the cost of the ride is £10. This will give you a ticket to cover refreshments at the café with the remainder of the funds raised going to the James Berry Fund.
If you can't make the ride, everyone is still welcome to come to Milltown for around 11am. We do require numbers so if you are planning on attending please sign on at Bikestyle or let me know through our Facebook page. Donation are welcome.
We hope to see as many of you out as possible on the day. Let's hope we get the great weather we have been blessed with every other year to help facilitate a great ride.
