Heart Foundation Bike Ride In Dorset


12:00am 27th April 2014

Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer according to the British Heart Foundation, and hundreds of our county's riders are gearing up to try and beat it!

Today's the British Heart Foundation's Dorset Bike ride which'll start and finish at Queen Elizabeth school in Wimbourne (Sunday 27th April). Registration is at 7.30am at the school.

Andy Coles, Regional Event Organiser, for the BHF told us, "We're absolutely thrilled to be organising our ever popular annual Dorset Bike Ride. So many people have already signed up, we're making even more places available this year by offering on the day registration."

Andy added, "Heart disease devastates too many lives, killing almost 80,000 a year, so it's vital that we all get behind the fight to find a breakthrough to eradicate this deadly disease and the misery it brings."

There are different cycle routes available from 25 to 100 mile distances and over 700 riders have signed up in advance.
