AN ANNUAL charity bike ride celebrates its 21st anniversary this year.
The Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool Bike Ride takes place on June 22 and time is running out to make an ‘early bird’ entry.
A spokesman for the popular event said: “Entry figures at the moment are noticeably higher than they were at this time last year.
“Pennine Events and Claire House Children’s Hospice are hoping that 2014 will be the biggest Liverpool-Chester-Liverpool Bike Ride yet, on all of the routes.
The date of the event is two weeks earlier than previous years due to the Tour de France, so what better way is there to get yourself in the mood for the Tour than getting on your bike?”
With an expected 4,000 riders taking part in this year’s event, Claire House Children’s Hospice will once again be the charity partner for the event. Claire House provides a sanctuary for children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions, and for their families, allowing them to forget about the daily routine and simply enjoy themselves.
Sophie Jackson, from Pennine Events, said: “The price of entry will be changing on February 3, so to benefit from our special early bird prices get your entry in before then!
