When: Wednesday, 13 September, 2017 - 09:00 to Sunday, 17 September, 2017 - 20:00
Local charity StreetInvest who support street children around the world is marking Richmond Borough and Fontainebleau’s 40th Twinning Anniversary with a cycle ride from Château de Fontainebleau to Orleans House Gallery.
Those who could not take the time off work, or were daunted by the 263 miles, can still join in the anniversary celebrations by taking part in Ride40 Minutes. The premise is simple. You cycle on a static gym bike for 40 minutes and are sponsored by family, friends and work colleagues for the number of miles covered in the allotted time.
Best of all, a local man and woman who cycle the greatest distance will win dinner for two at Chez Lindsay, Richmond. And their gym will be presented a trophy.
If you are not currently a gym member, contact Anytime Fitness, Twickenham who, subject to times and availability, will try to arrange access to one of their static bikes. Email Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org
The ride should be completed by 31 October 2017. A sponsorship form can be downloaded from their website link.
