Hundreds of cyclists go on ride
12:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
ABOUT 600 riders are expected to take part in the Wiltshire 100 and Wiltshire Big Wheel bike rides on Sunday.
The riders raise money for a variety of charities – last year the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, Freewheelers EVS and Bag4Sport Founda-tion were among the causes supported.
The cyclists set off from The Green in Devizes and have a choice of three routes – 100, 45 and 12 miles.
All the routes are circular, with the 100-mile route going to Salisbury, up the Avon Valley, Savernake Forest to Marlborough and through the Pewsey Vale. The 45 and 12-mile routes set off through the Pewsey Vale.
There will be refreshment stops and organiser Bike Events is providing marshals, medics, mechanics and support vehicles. On The Green will be food stalls, massage and a beer tent.
