A CHARITY in Bristol is looking for cyclists to join its 500-mile bike ride from Bristol to France to help raise funds.
The annual Bristol to Bordeaux challenge sees a team of 60 riders from across the UK, cycle over a period of four days. The aim is to raise more than £50,000 for PROPS, which provides opportunities and support for those with special needs. The Bristol-based organisation survives by generating its own funds through sporting events such as the bike ride and via social enterprises like sign making, printing and farm based activity. Organisers are looking to fi ll the remaining places in the ride, which leaves Bristol Temple Quay on July 1 and fi nishes at the Girondins Fountain in Quinconces square, Bordeaux, on July 4. Riders can choose between a 300 mile ‘Classic’ ride (roughly 80-miles per day) and a 500 mile ‘Extreme’ (125-miles per day) version.
For further information and to sign up to the ride, visit www. bristol2bordeaux.org or contact PROPS on 0117 9653514.
