Pedal for the J's

Event info
Sun 27/04/2014, 08:00

The date is set, the sunshine is booked, pump up your tyres and clip up your helmets! The J’s Hospice have set the date for our very popular annual cycling event to raise funds for vulnerable young adults across Essex.

Last year saw a fabulous 900 cyclists take part in Pedal for The J’s, flooding Chelmsford with experienced cyclists, novices and families enjoying a fun day out. This event is very much for families of all ages; last year the oldest participant was 83 and the youngest only 3 years old, who travelled the route with his pet dog - both in a cycle trailer pulled by his Dad!

2014 will be the fifth successful year of this event and offers riders the challenge of 15, 35 or 50 mile circular routes throughout the stunning springtime Essex countryside.

If you are a novice rider, the 15 mile is ideal – giving you a taste of what to expect in future years(!) with intermediates attempting a more rigorous 35 miles. For our more experienced riders the 50 mile ride is perfect – offering a real challenge to their stamina, strength and commitment!

Registration is just £12 for adults and £7 for children.

Last year The J’s Hospice raised an amazing £37,000 through the generosity of public and corporate sponsorship, ensuring we can deliver the vital service across the whole of Essex to our patients and families. We are asking you to save the date, get on your bike and Pedal for the J’s once again to make a real difference to those we support.

I did the 35 mile one last year, was my 1st sponsored ride & furthest I've ever gone in 1 day that day. Its a lovely ride in the country side & we had weather on our side. great chats to fellow cyclists as we pedalled along & enjoyed every bit as I raised money. A win win all round!  4

I have a blog if you like to see what the ride was like:
