ISLIP VILLAGERS AIM TO FIND 300 CYCLISTS TO JOIN THEIR ‘BIG BIKE RIDE’
The 2019 Westminster to Islip bike ride is once again being sponsored by IRIS Removals.
“Absolutely delighted to be involved with sponsoring and indeed the logistics of collecting all the bicycles for delivery down to Westminster Abbey. This is our third time of being involved and it certainly has got bigger and better every time in terms of the number of participants. It’s a really joyful and wonderful event so do get involved. We promised to look after your bicycle too!” – Graham Smalley Managing Partner
More information about the ride itself can be found below:
A team of villagers from Islip, Oxon are inviting cyclists young and old to join in a day of cycling on Sunday 7 May 2017. The event which is being held for the third time offers cyclists a fun day out and the opportunity to raise money for a charity. Three rides have been organised to suit everyone from tiny peddlers to keen cyclists. All entrance fees will split between two village organisations (Friends of Dr South’s School and St Nicholas Church) and riders are encouraged to seek sponsorship in aid of a charity of their own choice. The target is 300 cyclists and to raise £10,000. The ‘Big Bike Ride’ has been kindly supported by Breckon & Breckon estate agents and Isis Removals & Storage both based in Oxford.
The Big Bike Ride is approximately 65 miles from Westminster Abbey to Islip and will symbolically link Islip, the birthplace of Edward the Confessor with the Abbey he founded. The proposed route will take in sights such as Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park, follow the Grand Union Canal, then travel through the Chilterns via Great Missenden and Princes Risborough before reaching Thame and finally Islip. The Reverend Professor Vernon White, Canon of Westminster will set the riders off at 9am with a blessing in The Sanctuary, Westminster Abbey.
The two other rides are Nearly There which is approximately 18 miles from Thame Market Square to Islip and Tykes and Trikes which is a very short ride in the village for children and includes a ‘decorate a bike’ competition.
The Big Bike Ride organisers are inviting local small charities or community organisations who might not have the resources to organise an event of this size themselves to put forward a team. These teams will then each raise sponsorship funds for their own cause. Individual riders can also seek sponsorship for a good cause of their own choosing. Charity groups who have already signed up include Oxfordshire based Bookfeast who run book clubs for primary schools & elderly people promoting literacy.
