The event will start and finish at the Eye Community Centre, 25 Magdalen Street, Eye, Suffolk, IP23 7AJ.
Toilet facilities and refreshments will be available at the Community Centre before and after the ride. Parking will be available on site, but we encourage you to cycle to the event if you’re able to do so.
The registration desk will open at 8.00am and close 10 minutes before the start time of your chosen ride. The 20 mile ride starts at 9.00am with the 10 mile ride at 9.15am. Please allow plenty of time to arrive, register and get ready to go before your ride starts.
Soon as you finish the ride you will need to sign out at the registration desk where you’ll also be given your end of ride goodies.
There will be a refreshment stop at Thorndon Village Hall for both the 10 and 20 mile riders and an additional refreshment stop at Debenham Leisure Centre for the 20 mile riders. Cakes and refreshments will be available and any donations to the Blossom Charity would be most welcome.
Talking of which...
Women on Wheels is a local event in aid of The Blossom Charity based in Eye and we would love you to raise some sponsorship for your efforts. Any cyclist raising £250 or more will receive a special Blossom Charity t-shirt, which will be delivered to you after the event.
You can set up an online Blossom fundraising page which can easily be shared with family and friends here . If you would prefer a paper sponsorship form, then please contact the Blossom Charity by calling 01379 678483 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Women on Wheels aims to be a fun, social ride, aimed at anyone who wants to give it a go. For some, cycling 10 or 20 miles will be a major achievement; for others, it might be a leisurely ride with friends; but for all, we want you to enjoy yourselves. Hope you can join us.
