Revised date: Sunday 28th April Spring Ride / Help4Heroes

Dear All (please also pass this on to your friends),
In support of Nigel's Help for Heroes appeal (see below), we plan to do a spring ride to Cambridge City Cemetery on Sunday, 28th April. The idea is to raise money for Help4Heroes, so the charge will be £10 per adult and £2 per child under 16. Any additional money you can raise through your own sponsorship will, of course, be most welcome.
We want to stay together as a group, so you can be sure of a gentle ride.

We'll leave from Willingham Green at 9.30 a.m., cycle via Dry Drayton to the American Cemetery, where we can stop for a rest and a walk around. Then - subject to saddle soreness - on to Cambridge City Cemetery, which has about 1000 WWI and WWII graves, with another chance to rest and walk around. **We have a poppy wreath to leave there. On the way back, we plan to stop at the café at Oakington Nursery (best cheese scones in the East) to recharge the batteries for the final 5 miles. It'll be about 20 miles in all. To get your T-shirt/cycling jersey in advance (some for just £5 at the mo!!), go to
So please make a note of the date (if you could reply indicating your interest, that would be wonderful), and/or support the charity using the links below:
Nigel says:

After a break of nearly three years, I have been fortunate enough to be offered a place on the Big Battlefield Bike Ride which leaves Paris on May 28th and finishes at the Cenotaph in London on Sunday 2nd June 2013.
There will 200 of us taking part in the ride from Paris and we will be joined by hundreds more at Blackheath as we cycle into London on the final day. I will be cycling with wounded servicemen and women from the UK, Canada and the USA. A team from Battle Back, the Military Adaptive Adventure Training and Sports Programme developed at Headley Court will also be taking part.

My fundraising target for BBR2013 is £2,500 and given the tough economic times we all find ourselves in, this will be an especially challenging aspect to the project. I hope that as many of you as possible will support me in reaching my goal and providing funds to a charity that is incredibly close to my heart.

I am hoping to organise a couple of fund raising events in Willingham soon (a Race Night at the Duke is on the cards) so please keep a lookout!
