Get On Your Bike And Pedal For Charity


April bike ride through beautiful Essex countryside

What could be better than spending a Sunday cycling through Essex villages and countryside, enjoying the Spring sunshine, absorbing the beauty of the countryside and perhaps enjoying a short stop for lunch or a drink at one of the village pubs or cafes en route? We are inviting couples, families and friends to take part in Pedal for The J’s, now in its fourth year, a successful charity bike ride that draws people from across Essex with excellent reviews  on its organisation and variety of routes.

Bike Ride For J's HospiceThe event will take place on 28th April 2013 and promises to be a great day out for experienced cyclists and novices alike. The ride takes in some of Essex’s most beautiful villages with a choice of three routes of 15, 35 and 50 miles.  All routes will start and finish at Admirals Park in Chelmsford with the 15 mile route taking in the Easters and the longer ones travelling west towards Hatfield Heath and then back through the Rodings. The spirit of the event is ‘taking part’ so you can go as fast or slow as you like.

The J’s Hospice provides hospice care in the home for young adults throughout Essex. Due to improvements in medical care and technology, the population of young adults with life limiting conditions is growing. But at 19 years old, these patients have outgrown children’s services and need age appropriate care and support.  The J’s Hospice team provides hospice, medical, nursing and respite care for patients, carers and their families. They also provide emotional and bereavement support. The long term aim is to build a stand-alone hospice building in Essex.

You can register to take part in Pedal for the J’s online by visiting or call Katie on 01245 475474 for a registration form to be sent to you. Registration is just £12 (£7 for under 16s) and this includes a t shirt and refreshments; there is no minimum sponsorship but of course please try to raise as much as you can!  Registration is open now so hurry as places are filling quickly!
