Road2Recovery Charity Rideout
In September 2024 we will celebrate our 10th annual Rideout and hope to mark the occasion with a special day for everyone.
We will again be starting our rideout from Wistow Rural Centre (LE8 0QF) where brunch will be served from 10am by Jane and her great staff at the Wistow Cafe Bistro.
We leave around 11.30am and our journey will take us through Market Harborough, Rockingham, Uppingham, Oakham and Melton Mowbray before arriving at the wonderful setting at Eye Kettleby Lakes about 1.15pm.
At Eye Kettleby Lakes we will have our usual cakes, snacks and drinks available and also a few fun games, and weather permitting, we are hoping to welcome a few flexwing airplanes to fly-in.
We will leave from Wistow Rural Centre at 11.30am
and will arrive at Eye Kettleby Lakes around 1.15pm.
We will have a limited edition of mementos to celebrate our 10th year
Everyone is welcome to join us at Eye Kettleby Lakes to see the motorbikes & flexwings arriving and enjoy the food and games.
Pre-register below and pick up your free gift on the day
Our registration desk will be open from 10am at Wistow Rural Centre.
North West 200 Charity Lap
Thursday 11th May 2023
On Thursday 11th May 2023 Claire pulled on her 'brave pants' as she completed a lap of the famous 8.9 mile international road race course. Claire had been invited to do a charity lap at the largest outdoor sporting event in Northern Ireland which attracts 150000 spectators.
You may think riding a motorbike isn't a physically demanding challenge as it has an engine but out of all the sports Claire has done, this one tires her the most. With that in mind, as well as making sure she was confident to negotiate the twists and turns on the course, she was out out on track days from March building up her strength and ability.
As usual, Claire tried to raise as much money as possible to help rewrite the future of a spinal cord injury which doesn't just affect the person injured but their loved ones too. She held an online auction to start the fundraising and will continue to hold other auctions throughout this year and next so please email email@example.com if you are able to help or if you can spare a pound or two then that would be amazing - please click on the box below for her Just Giving page

Claire also really appreciates the support of Helen Clifford Law, as she has kindly offered to cover her expenses on this challenge.
