Unfazed by central London traffic, four Skillington woman will join thousands cycling 100km through the capital, in order to raise as much money as possible for charity ‘women v cancer’.
Wendi Carrington, who sadly lost both her parents to cancer, completed last year’s ‘Ride the Night’ event alongside friend Annthea Fryer, which sees women from across the country don pink cycling gear and pedal their way into the night-time metropolis.
Starting and ending at the Royal Windsor Racecourse, during the 100km route they will pass Twickenham stadium and Battersea Park, as well as take in the sight of the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye as they cross Westminster Bridge. The charity cyclists will make their way back through Admiralty Arch, past the Royal Albert Hall and return to the racecourse.
“It’s a tough route, but when we completed it we knew that we wanted to do it again,” said Wendi.
This time around Wendi and Annthea will be joined by Anita Sheehan and Rachael Childs in the ‘Ride the Night 2015’ event taking place on May 30.
Ahead of the big day they are holding a fund-raising ‘Elvis’ evening at Skillington village hall.
Starting at 7.30pm on March 14, there will be music including from an Elvis impersonator, as well as a buffet, bar, and raffle.
Tickets cost £10 and are available by calling Wendi on 07595 621672, or Anita 07733 116587. Advance bookings are prefered, but there will also be tickets available on the door.
