The 2024 Ripon Rotary Charity Bike Ride, through the delightful countryside of the Vale of York, was held in brilliant May sunshine, whilst raising funds for good causes. We will exceed last year’s total of £14000, which will be shared between Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Saint Michael’s Hospice, Dementia Forward and other Rotary charities. 

A huge thanks to the 250 riders. The ride was incident free and we received a lot of very positive feedback.

- “the organisation was second to      none.”
- “thank you to the cheery marshals” -

-  “and ooh that cake to finish”
- “the refreshments and water stops were so welcome on such a hot day”

- “I’ve ridden since the Acorn days and will be back next year.”

And, finally, one that we hope that you may not need
- “having a cheerful support vehicle was reassuring”

Next year’s ride is booked for Saturday 10th May. We look forward to seeing all our riders next year and if you could bring a friend, that would help us to increase our charity donations.

We are very grateful for the support of our corporate sponsors and the sponsorship gained by our riders, which is still coming in. Don’t forget you may still donate on JustGiving.

Make sure we have your e mail address and with your permission, we will be in touch with our occasional newsletter.

Enjoy your cycling!
