Many thanks to all who helped and took part in the hugely successful first edition of Merlin’s Coast to Coast. 85 riders took part in the ride and all came back with smiles on their faces, despite the challenging hills in the second half of the ride. The occasion was made even more successful by the wonderful spread of food at the finish and many thanks to all those who contributed to the catering.
Next year there we hope to run a 50k ride alongside the 100k, which hopefully will result in an even greater number of participants.
It is now only 6 weeks to this new event starting from the Merlin MS Centre at Hewas Water near St Austell. This event is to raise money for the Merlin MS Centre which is an outstanding charity supporting people with multiple sclerosis. It is a source of great support both to people suffering with the condition and to their carers. This ride therefore has a slightly higher than normal entry fee of £10 but participants are also invited to raise additional sponsorship money if they would like to do so. A sponsorship form can be obtained by accessing the Merlin MS Centre’s own website at the following address:
Or alternatively by contacting Sarah Snell on (01726) 885536.
Refreshments will be available at the Merlin MS Centre at the end of the ride and a goody bag is also available, kindly donated by Clive Mitchell cycles. Fred will be there at the Merlin Centre for the start of the ride to help with any minor glitches to bikes etc to ensure that things go smoothly on the day. There will even be someone out there taking photos to commemorate the event.
Come and join us and bring the sunshine too if you can!!
