Sunday 16 September will see the second running of the Cycling Challenge in
support of the Paul Davies Memorial Fund for the Cardiomyopathy Association.
As last year there will be a choice of three routes:
– 25km from Billericay to Blackmore and back – suitable for fun riders
– 50km from Billericay to Willingale and back – suitable to those with some
– 100km from Billericay to Little Hallingbury and back – for the more serious
The Event HQ for all three routes is Hannakins Farm Community Centre Centre,
Billericay and the start is from 8:30am.
All routes are mainly on quiet lanes and the 50km and 100km utilise some of
the National Cycling Network Route 1.
The entry is £15 and all finishers will receive an award. All proceeds
for this event will go to the Cardiomyopathy Association in memory of Paul Davies
who died aged 28 in 2005. Although not a cyclist himself, Paul was the consummate
sports fan and, besides his passion for football and boxing, could speak with
knowledge about most sports, certainly including cycle racing.
This is one of a series of events in his memory to raise money to increase
our knowledge of this young persons’ heart disease, a condition which
weakens the heart muscles and is the commonest cause of sudden death for people
under 30 in the UK.
Entries should be sent to the Organiser: Trevor Mills, 4 Trumpeter Court, Billericay,
CM12 0HQ (Tel: 01277 657186) and in return each entrant will receive a route
card and sponsorship forms.
Alternatively it will be possible to enter on the day.
