About this event :

Charity Bike RideSunday 8th June 2014 will be the date of the fundraising bike ride from our dark sky observing site at Derwent Reservoir to the Cygnus Observatory in Washington.

The route is 28 miles and takes us on a mixture of cycle paths and quiet country lanes. We’ll leave Derwent around 10.30am leaving plenty of time to arrive back at Cygnus in the afternoon before the Society’s workshop meeting that evening! We might even have some members waiting to greet us on our arrival at Cygnus.

The purpose of the ride is to raise money for the improvements to our observatory that are planned for this year. We can provide sponsor forms to those who would like them and we are going to set up a JustGiving text facility.

All we ask is that anyone taking part makes their friends aware that they are doing the ride and how they can donate if they wish. There was a good response to my first post about doing this so I’d now like to invite riders to confirm and we’ll start planning the logistics of getting bikes transported on the day/practice rides for those who want them/etc.
