More than 250 cyclists from across the North West took part in this year’s Ribble Valley Ride to raise more than £6,000 which will be shared between Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Rotary Great Britain and Ireland.

This year, the ride returned to its usual date in June, with an easy 25-mile route, a challenging 60-mile route and the classic 100-mile route taking in some of the best hill climbs in Lancashire and Yorkshire.

“We’d really like to turn the Ribble Valley Ride into a mass participation event and raise as much as possible for good causes and we can only do that thanks to the support of our sponsors, some generous donations and the goodwill of our small army of volunteers.

“I’d like to say a huge ‘thankyou’ to everyone who took part in this year’s ride – and to the sponsors, supporters and volunteers.. We’ll be back with a bigger and better event in 2024.”

The event is run along the same lines as a cycle sportive – but with several differences from the norm. It is not a commercial undertaking – it is

organized and run by the Rotary clubs of Accrington and Clitheroe and all surplus funds go to charity.

The 2024 Ribble Valley Ride will take place on Sunday, June 9th and further details are available at: https://ribblevalleyride.org/
