The British Heart Foundation Need You!

11th January 2016

Sign up for the BHF's Peak District Mountain Bike Ride and fund lifesaving research into heart disease The British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on people everywhere to join the fight for every heartbeat and take part in the Peak District Mountain Bike Ride on Saturday 12th March to tackle heart disease.

Over 350 people have already signed up for the challenge with 10 weeks to go before the annual Peak District Mountain Bike Ride, there are less than 150 places left. Take on the brutal terrain of Hope Valley in Derbyshire and see if you can conquer the technical route and rocky terrain on one of the toughest off road rides in the UK this spring. This event has been revamped for 2016 and fundraisers can choose either 38k or 80k routes Listed as grade four in difficulty, this is a tough, technical ride where you'll be faced with several climbs and rocky descents. It'll all be worth it when you heroically cross that finish line knowing you've helped to fund research that saves lives. Helen Wright, Regional Event Organiser for the BHF said: -We're delighted to be organising our 6th Peak District Mountain Bike Ride. It promises to be another great occasion and we're calling on the people to sign up to help us beat our fundraising target of £50,000 and join the fight against heart disease. -Heart disease devastates too many lives, killing around 80,000 people every year, so it's vital that we all get behind the fight to find a breakthrough to eradicate this deadly disease and the misery it brings. Entry fees for the event are £23 for adults and £20 for children under 14 who must be accompanied by an adult throughout the ride. All abilities are welcome, although training beforehand is strongly recommended. Join the fight today and call the events team to register on 0845 130 8663 or visit bhf.org.uk/peak Alternatively, you can email the events team on events@bhf.org.uk Ends
