Lutterworth Rotary’s Big Bike Ride – Press Report – 17th August
19th August 2014
... Comments

It is often said that August can be wet and so it proved to be at the start of the day of our Big Bike Ride. However we had blue sky and scattered clouds during the event allowing us to exceed last year’s figure of those who took part giving us 420 cyclists who rode one of the four courses offered – 11, 23, 39 or 62 miles.

From the cyclists who took part praise was given to the team from Lutterworth Rotary Club who made it all possible.  As you will imagine hours of hard work went into the success it proved to be making in excess of £3,000 for the charities the club supported – Epilepsy Action and Rotary Charities including the club’s own disabled sports initiative. Favourable mention was made of the good route signage and marshalling as was the generosity of Mrs Heather Craven for the use of her immaculate grounds at Misterton Hall for both the start and finish of the event. 

The well earned Hog Roast was provided once again by Neil Green Catering who have sponsored the event since it was first organised.

Thank you everybody for making it such a successful day.
