6th October 2019 - First rider off from 8am

Cunningly placed towards the end of the cycling season to give a final challenge before the winter bike comes into play, the SNCC Sportive is back for another year. After last year’s successful Sportive we are hoping for good weather to give you an enjoyable ride.

Again, this year’s Sportive offers options of 100 miles, 100 kms and 30-mile routes – so there’s something for riders of all abilities. The SNCC Sportives are famed for their well-stocked feed stations, with a mixture of sweet and savoury treats to keep the hungry cyclist going. This year, we will have 1 feed station, at Sue Ryder, St John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger.

2019 Sportive Charitable Cause
First and foremost, SNCC members like riding their bikes, but they also like supporting charitable causes, especially those that have some significance to cycling, our local communities and individual club members. So even though Moggerhanger is in Bedfordshire it is a place that SNCC cycle past on a regular basis.

Sue rider support

Last year Sue Ryder provided 105,000 hours of support to patients and their families across Bedfordshire

Their care is free, but it costs them £3.7m per year to provide it, which equates to £10,000 per day! 
Without the tireless fundraising of our supporters, we would not be able to continue to provide the care that we are so well known for.
Not only do our supporters raise a huge amount of money towards our services, they also help to spread the word about Sue Ryder so more people know about what we do and how we can help.
