Burnham Beeches Bike Ride 2015

On Sunday 7th June, over 15 marshals and 23 riders rode around the leafy Burnham Beeches to raise money for our charity and a charity of the riders' choice. The weather was sunny and the recent blustery wind had dies down for a calm day. The riders completed the 8, 15 and 20 mile routes successfully and were awarded with a medal, chilled water and some chocolate on completing the ride.
