Myton Hospice Cycle Challenge

Join us for our annual cycle challenge featuring our inaugural “King of the Mytons” Timed Hill Climb Challenge on our 100KM and 150KM routes or choose our 50KM leisure ride.

100KM and 150KM Sportive Routes:

Taking in the glorious rolling Warwickshire countryside both routes will offer a challenging but picturesque ride through chocolate box villages and leafy lanes.  Taking in a couple of moderate climbs to get your legs warmed up you will then face our “King of the Mytons” hill climb challenge where your goal is to reach the summit safely in the best time possible to have a chance of earning our coveted title of King and Queen of the Mytons, a unique Winners Jersey and trophy.

The ride will then separate and the 100KM will make their way back home over a few more moderate climbs whereas the 150KM will have a little further to go and over some more challenging terrain.

Our exclusive King of the Mytons Challenge is designed to add some “Light-hearted” competition to the ride and we expect all riders to take part in this spirit. The guidelines for selecting a winner are as follows:

Both routes will complete the same mileage up to the Hill Climb Challenge.
The quickest male and female rider will be selected by means of timing mats at the start and finish of the climb.
In the event of a tie-breaker the winner will be the one who records the quickest average time from start of the ride to the summit of the climb.
Reckless and bad-mannered riding will not be tolerated and if witnessed the rider will be disqualified from the King of the Mytons Challenge.

50KM Leisure Ride:

This offers a  shorter  route for less experienced cyclists to gain confidence taking part in an organised cycle event.  The route will be designed to be achievable for new cyclists through quiet lanes although there will be a few moderate inclines to offer you a challenge and sense of achievement.

SPONSORSHIP:


There is no set target for sponsorship however if you can aim to raise as much as you can we would really appreciate it.  We are aiming to raise £25K from this event and we can send you a fundraising pack on entry to give you some ideas. 

You can choose the option of making a donation instead of raising sponsorship if you prefer. 

We are offering a free cycling jersey incentive if you can raise a minimum of £100 sponsorship.
