This year falls on what would have been Ellis's 23rd Birthday, this combined with it being the 10th anniversary of SCAT makes it a super special day in which we aim to go out in style!
Promising a very similar route to previous years, around the picturesque villages of Hertfordshire. With a good balance of open flats and gentle hills this is a perfect route for every generation, including the competitive members of the family with the opportunity to test your legs on our timed climb challenge.
This year I have been given special permission to RUN the event. Having ridden the event in 2013, I wanted to raise the bar and end on a high. I am hoping that this will raise awareness and help raise funds for a well deserved cause. A big thanks goes to Billie and the Team for supporting me in this event.
If you can find some spare cash please donate to the cause on the link below:
If you want to ride the event, then the details are below:
The ride includes three official fuel stops, not to mention a number of pubs should you require some refreshment along the way. The Ellis 50 Miler is the perfect opportunity for the focused cyclist in training and those wishing to emulate Bradley Wiggins at their own pace.
Family and friends will be welcome to join us at the finishing line where they can enjoy a variety of food and drink stalls before cheering their heroes home.
The ride is held in support of the Ellis Harriet Clark Foundation and all fundraising will go to their nominated charities: Teenage Cancer Trust and the Skeletal Cancer Action Trust. Fundraising is integral to the success of the event and every penny raised in sponsorship goes towards their fantastic work.
The 4th May 2014 marks what would have been Ellis’ 22nd Birthday so you can be sure of a celebration befitting such an occasion upon completion of the challenge.
