mass or charity rides

The last 2 rides I have been on seem to have had little 'wider'
publicity.
They were the @great Yorkshire bike ride' (Wetherby-Filey) and the
Coast to Coast (Morecambe to scarborough)

as both were well run, challenging yet fun and some charities
benefitted.

is it worth using the list to advise others of any mass participation
or charity rides

for example

14 August CTC challenge ride from Sheffield over Holme Moss 100 0r
150k

21 August Dewsbury Ambulance ride Dewsbury (w Yorks) to Morecambe
70 miles ish

and the Tour of Britain ride start not decided yet but will go over
Holme Moss either from Sheffield or huddersfield

3 routes likely 20,40 80 miles, subject to decisions on venue etc.
will also have events for children and non riders etc etc

some mags etc don't list far enough in front to allow us to make
arrangements.

Hi,

I'm keen to do the Morecambe-Scarborough ride in 2006 but I can't find a
single thing about it on this here internet. Got any idea who the organiser
is?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Cheers,
Andy

and also the BHF

the Challenge ride is CTC

It would be nice to have a thread on mass rides coming up, some of us
post the rides we are doing and meet others on them but a thread needs
to keep being replied to to stop it falling off the bottom of the page
(for those not with newsreaders)

it was the BHF in 2004; www.bhf.org.uk

their events fall off the calendar after the date they run, but I
imagine they will put an advance notice up before January
