Exciting update with the Tour off Teesside- this event was conceived by a gentleman called Neal after the hugely successful Whitby to the riverside bike ride held in 2015.
It was always the intention to do a Major sponsored bike ride every year for the Fat Lads on Bikes, so after discussions with Alastair Brownlee who sadly is no longer with us due to losing his own personal battle with Bowel cancer and his friend and fellow BBC match day summariser Neil Maddison, it has now been agreed that Teesside should have a tour of its own!
The Tour of Teesside was conceived after hours of hard work, planning and a lot determination from everyone who has been involved. Its a 44.1 mile route that will take in some of the very best scenery that Teesside and the surrounding area has to offer, with further plans to extend the route in 2017 this event is event is predicted to grow year on year.
After careful thought and consideration the thought was how can the whole of Teesside be included ? So the Tour Of Teeside has been opened to other charity’s and give them a chance to take part and hopefully raise funds for their respective charities.
In 2016 these amazing groups will be a part of the Tour of Teesside:
- The Fat Lads on Bikes and Phat Lasses in Trainers
- The Middlesbrough and Teesside Philanthropic Fund
- The Ellen Timney Foundation
- MS Middlesbrough
- Remembering Rebecca
- Rhys Clapton
When you register your place, you will be asked to simply pick the charity that you will fund raise for and that chosen charity will then be notified that you have picked them as your chosen charity, they will then contact you direct with a sponsor pack to enable you to raise funds direct for them.
To help you decide just click on each link above and a page of their own will be opened and this way an informed choice on who to ride for, once you have decided who to ride for simply complete the registration/payment process and then get training!
