Hinckley2Heather: Charity bike ride

Hinckley AFC supporters are invited to join the second annual Hinckley2Heather charity bike ride this July in memory of Simon Blyth.

Last July, a group of AFC supporters rode the 12 miles from Hinckley to Heather on bikes to raise funds in Somon’s memory for Cancer Research UK.

And after it raised more than £857, this summer it’s time for round two.

On Saturday 14th July, the day our Simon Blyth Memorial Cup match against Heather will take place, AFC fans are invited to get on their bikes once again in memory of a good friend and fellow supporters.

Entry is £15 per person, which includes admission to the match and a drink upon arrival at St John’s Park. All riders must be over 18 and must wear a helmet.

The ride will start at The Milestone pub in Hinckley at midday, riding through Dadlington, Shenton and Bosworth Water Park before arriving at The Rising Sun in Shackerstone for the first break around nine miles in.

The remaining four miles to Heather are uphill, but a drink will be awaiting the riders upon arrival at St John’s Park.

A raffle will also be taking place at the game, with proceeds split between the Teenage Cancer Trust and a Hinckley AFC player sponsorship in Simon’s memory.

If you want to get involved in the event, contact organiser Marek Portland directly or email Hinckley AFC director Mark Langley on msjlangley60@aol.com
