Well, we managed it. After 30 miles, a cheeky half way pint (for some) and what seemed like a mountain, 311 riders made it across the finish line of this year’s Stokesley Charity Bike Ride.

We are honoured to have had the opportunity to sponsor this brilliant day, raising money for a great cause and having a thoroughly enjoyable time along the way.

After a quick speech from RPS Director Gary Hudson wishing the riders luck, they were off. It was tough, especially the ascent of Clay bank, but everyone remained in great spirits throughout (the halfway stop at the pub probably helped). All in all, a great day out!

So far we’ve managed to raise £2,000 for this year’s chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Care at James Cook South Tees Hospital. A particularly special cause to everyone involved due to the sad passing of Mandy Thompson, who had participated in every ride since it started. Over the past 18 years, the Stokesley Charity Bike Ride has managed to raise over £115,000 – a great achievement; long may it continue.

We’re very proud of the great feedback we’ve had from event organiser, Paul Mackintosh, who said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you again for all that RPS is doing for the Stokesley Ride. A fabulous turn out and hopefully a lot of cash will be raised. It really does make me chuffed that through RPS the Stokesley ride wheels continue to turn for other local charities.”

We’d like to thank everyone who took part and especially Paul for organising the event; it was a pleasure to be involved. We’re looking forward to the presentation night in October, where the final total will be announced and of course, to next year’s ride!
