Wirral Bikeathon

This year’s Bikeathon took place on Sunday 11th June 2017.  It was the 19th Wirral Bikeathon and before the 2017 Bikeathon the event had raised £880,000 with £45,000 pledged on 11 June giving a new total of £925,000.   All the funds raised will help us fund our vital research to change the lives of people living with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other types of blood cancer. 

Riders enjoyed a 14 or 28 mile ride around the Wirral with live music from the Peninsula Jazzmen and Radio City were also present at the finish.  Congratulations also go to Tracey Jump, rider no. 297,  won the one month's free family membership of Total Fitness gym. Also well done to Young Marley Fulco, rider no. 60, who was the lucky winner of the Boardman Bike raffle prize.   The thanks of the Wirral Bikeathon go to Chris Boardman for kindly donating a Boardman Bike once again this year.
