Personal Best’ Records Broken In Annual Sussex Fundraising Bike Ride

Riders made great progress and broke their personal best records when Horsham Wheels for All held its annual fundraising bike ride from Shoreham to Horsham, using the Downslink cycle route.

The club welcomes all ages and abilities and encourages use of a wide range of adapted bikes, with instruction from the county council’s Bikeability team.

A Bikeability spokesperson, said: “The goal of Horsham Wheels for All is to get everyone riding. The club had a great turnout on its fundraising, with riders covering distances of between one and 15 miles.’

“This was the second, successive year the club has covered the route, with some members doubling the distances they covered in 2017. Some people were also riding sections independently for the first time.”

As well as an effort to raise the club’s profile and seek new members, Wheels for All also aims to raise much-needed funds to go towards a new, side-by-side hand cycle through its JustGiving sponsor page.

The group welcomes all new riders of all abilities to sign-up and join the energetic group, it meets weekly at Broadbridge Heath Athletics track on Friday afternoons during term time, 4.30pm to 6.00pm.
