CYCLE SWARM
Thu 5th May 2016
Ride for the Sporting Light Appeal!

Each year, the Sporting Light Appeal hops on the saddle for the Norwich Cycle Swarm, supported by British Cycling and Cycles UK.

Organised by Cycle Swarm, last year over 500 riders took to the North Norfolk countryside on Monday 5th May, raising valuable funds for the Sporting Light Appeal.

Starting at Carrow Road, the route takes in some of Norfolk’s most scenic countryside and picturesque villages, along quiet country roads – with the longer routes heading out onto the coast – before looping back to Norwich for the grand finish.

Open across all ages and abilities and with three different routes to choose from (35 miles, 70 miles & 100 miles) there is a ride for everybody.

For every pedal you push and mile you ride, your money will help thousands of disadvantaged and disabled people across Norfolk get active and into sport.

This year, you can cycle for FREE if you can raise £50 for the Community Sports Foundation. Please contact emma.fletcher@canaries.co.uk for further information or see the website below.
