Online Entry now Open for 2016!

ENTER ONLINE here!

We encourage you to pre-enter for the ride of your choice. It’s a very easy process through the British Cycling site, and here’s why we’re keen on online entry:

  • Maximises the funds raised for Charity by allowing us to have a more accurate projection on rider numbers
  • Pre-registered riders will have a “Fast Track” sign-in on the day; minimal queuing
  • Saves the participant money vs. entering on the day

Donate through JustGiving! New for 2016…

If you’d like to make a donation in support of the event, you can do so via JustGiving directly to either the Brain Tumour Foundation or the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance. We thought we’d add this option for those who may not be able to make it on the day, or if anyone wants to simply make a separate donation.

Since TeamGeorge is not a national registered Charity, we can’t setup a JustGiving page for his cause. However, we’ll even up the funds including rider entry fees, cash donations, raffle ticket sales etc. after the event to ensure each cause receives their share!

All-Systems-Go for 2016!

The annual Liam Pridmore Memorial Cycle Ride takes place this year on Saturday the 3rd September at the Golden Pheasant in Etton. The Committee that organise the event have been working hard to make this year’s ride as successful as the last few years. The event is named after Liam Pridmore from Glinton who died from a form of aggressive Brain Tumour in April 2012, aged just 13. Since this point the event has been held in his name and has raised in excess of £25,000 for local and also national charities.

The day consists of three cycle rides to suit all ages and abilities. There is a 60 mile Sportive Ride and a 25 and 5 mile ride for the more leisurely riders and children. Entertainment is available throughout the day from local musicians and bands, along with a BBQ and a very premium raffle taking place in the evening.

As well as The Brain Tumour Charity, this year’s ride is also raising funds for George Robinson from Stamford who suffered serious spinal injuries in July 2015 playing rugby for Stamford School. The team are hoping to donate funds to help towards the purchase of an All-Terrain Wheelchair. Alongside George, the organisers are also raising funds for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance in light of the excellent support given to Chris Fitzjohn from Maxey. Chris was involved in a serious accident at the beginning of 2016 and was air-lifted from the scene. More insight to their stories to follow shortly.

Registration for the rides will be open at The Golden Pheasant, Etton from 9.30am until 12 noon and riders can start at their leisure. So get “on yer bike” and get along to support a very worthy local event!
