This past weekend saw the streets of London and Surrey packed with thousands of people showing their support for the cycling, and cheering on Team GB through sunshine and even thunderstorms.
Well it worked for Lizzie Armitstead, who took the first medal of the games for Team GB on Sunday, in a thrilling race which left her battling for a position on the podium in a magnificent sprint finish.
Lizzie only discovered she had a talent for cycling at 16 when she was spotted by the British Cycling talent drive at school after deciding to “have a go”.
If Lizzie’s story has inspired you, why not have a go at cycling the Surrey Supercycle – a sponsored cycle event to be held on Sunday 16th September at Dunsfold Park.
Don’t worry, we won’t make you cycle 140km! Instead you can choose from three different routes, ranging from 500m to the 5km Top Gear Track, depending on your age, experience and ability, and do as many laps as you can.
By taking part in this exciting event you can help raise vital funds for United Response whilst enjoying a range of exciting activities including market stalls, face painting and a ‘fastest lap’ competition.
The event is open to absolutely anyone, with no minimum sponsorship, and to encourage people with disabilities to take part, Wheels for All are providing adapted bikes free of charge – just let us know when you register if you need one!
For more information, visit the Surrey Supercycle page on our website.
£5 advance entry fee to cycle.
£10 on the day (there will be limited entries available on the day, so to avoid disappointment it is advisable to book in advance).
Free entry for family, friends and supporters to come along on the day.
