Tour de Furness: Get on your bike and ride for charity
From the Tour of Britain to the Tour de Furness, it seems bicycling is headlining big style in the Barrow area at the moment, and cycling is a great way to get fit, get fresh air and make new friends.
The other great thing about cycling is the Tour de Furness charity cycle event which is organised by the Rotary Club of Furness. The idea is to get cyclists of all abilities joining in to have fun and raise money for St Mary’s Hospice as well as other local charities.
There is still time to register and be a part of our fabulous 2019 Tour de Furness, which takes place on Sunday 8th September.
Don’t be put off at the thought of long distance riding as there is a choice of four routes to suit your physical fitness. Routes range from 5 to 50 miles, just pick the one you feel most comfortable doing.
If you’d like to take part please see the four excellent routes that take in some of the most breathtaking scenery the Furness peninsula has to offer.
The 5 mile route is suitable for novices, and families with children can spend it having fun time together.
The 13 mile Tour de Furness route should appeal to family groups and the leisure cyclist.
The 23 mile route is for people who want to do more than 13 miles, but not quite as far as 50.
The “Furness 50” is suitable for cycling enthusiasts and is still the most popular route with around 177 people participating.
No pressure just pleasure. Take your time and enjoy the great outdoors whilst helping those in need.
