North Dorset Cycle Ride 2024!


Shaftesbury Rotary Club are delighted that their hugely popular annual fundraiser is back this month – complete with the new Family Ride

The annual North Dorset Cycle Ride will take place on Sunday 19th May 2024. As usual, there will be two routes – a 25-mile ride, and a 50-mile ride. Both with strat from Park Walk, and both will finish with the iconic ride UP Gold Hill.
The 50-mile ride will start from 8.30am, and the 25-mile ride from 9.30am – registration opens an hour before the rides start.
The Family Ride that was launched successfully in 2023 will also feature again. This year the family ride will wind around the town – with fun on the way – along safe side roads, and it’s ideal for beginner and energetic junior cyclists. When it reaches Shaftesbury Primary School, a range of skills tests will be on offer, led by local Rotarians and supported by RotaKids from Shaftesbury Primary and Abbey Primary schools.
Every competitor who completes a ride will receive a medal.
Full details of the ride and how to enter can be found on Shaftesbury Rotary Club’s website – follow the links to the North Dorset Cycle Ride.
The main beneficiary will be the HOPE Charity, and for the third year running, the event will be sponsored by BV Dairy.
