Weston Hospicecare is urging committed cyclists to support the charity by taking part in this year’s Prudential RideLondon 100 race.

The hospice has announced it has four coveted gold bond places available for the race on July 30, which is widely known as cycling’s equivalent to the London Marathon.

The 100-mile route from London to Surrey takes cyclists along the same course used for races in the London 2012 Olympic Games, and thousands of people are expected to take part.

The hospice is now urging anyone thinking of taking on the challenge to apply for one of its gold bond places.

Fundraising assistant Rachel Smith said: “We’re really excited to have secured four guaranteed gold bond spots again for our supporters this year.

“In addition to providing our supporters with tips and help, we can also offer our riders one of our high-quality cycling jerseys. We encourage anyone interesting in taking part in this – or any other – fundraising challenge to get in touch.”

For more information about applying for a gold bond place contact 01934 423900 by 
March 13.
