The Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust has been selected as the charity partner for the Surrey Classic Bike Ride, taking place on Sunday 26th June 2016.
The event, sponsored and supported by Allianz, offers something for cyclists of all ages and abilities with three different routes (25, 60 or 100 mile), covering the beautiful Surrey countryside.
Jamie Cheshire, the life-saving charity's Press, Media & Marketing Officer, is taking part having previously cycled in the charity's own Double 100 Cycle Challenge event, which is not being held this year. Jamie is hoping that other previous Double 100 cyclists will join him for the Surrey Classic Bike Ride instead, which is set to be a fantastic event.
Jamie said: "Working for the air ambulance, I see every day the difference our life-saving crews can make. None of us ever know when we may need the air ambulance as we go about our daily lives living, working and travelling in the counties."
There is fun to be had for the whole family on the 25-mile route, while the more hardy cycling enthusiasts who want a bigger challenge, can take on the 60 or 100-mile routes. The start and finish venue for the 2016 event will again be the stunning Horsley Park, a magnificent grand Victorian mansion built in 1828.
Registration closes on Thursday 23rd June 2016. Those taking part in aid of the charity can benefit from a discount of the registration fee by using promotional code code SCAA16.
