Cycle the Wirral Bikeathon for Bloodwise and help beat blood cancer
The Wirral Bikeathon is a 14- or 28-mile ride up and down the Wirral Peninsula. Arrowe Country Park is the start, midpoint and finish area. The route features both on- and off-road terrain and is clearly signposted along roads and country paths.
This is our twentieth event and to date we have raised £925,000 to help vital vital blood cancer research and support for those affected. We'd like to ask our supporter to help us make the £1,000,000 mark this year.
The event is suitable for all ages and for disabled cyclists using suitable equipment. All children must be accompanied. Children under eight are not allowed to ride independently. All riders are encouraged to wear helmets.
Refreshments are available in the start area, Red Room Cafe provides hot food and riders and their families can enjoy live music provided by local bands. Free bike repair services will be offered by Bikes and Boards of West Kirby, The Bike Shop of Moreton and K-Cycles of Eastham in the park and at Dovepoint on the prom in Meols.
Chris Boardman, the Olympic Gold Medallist will also be in attendance and all those who take part in the ride this year are in with a chance to win a Boardman bike kindly donated by the man himself.
