Essex Young Farmers (EYF) are gearing up for a 17 mile charity bike ride around Essex’s countryside, which is being staged in aid of the Rachel Cullen Foundation.

The charity is close to the hearts of many EYF members as it was set up in memory of a former EYF member. Essex Young Farmers are hoping to raise as much money as possible for the cause, which helps to provide support for those facing sarcoma, a rare type of cancer, in the UK.

The races, for its members and subscribers, will set off from the EYF county building, at Chatham Green, taking participants round on a cycle- friendly trip filled with small challenges and obstacles to be attempted en route, before finishing back at the county building.

Each rally aspect was be overseen by the stewards who judged the completion of each task, as well as offered guidance to cyclists along the route- so there is no fear of getting lost. A barbecue lunch will be held at the county building for all participants and volunteers to help motivate them around the course.

Cyclists will be seeking sponsorship for their efforts as all money raised will go towards the foundation. If you would like further details on how to donate, please contact the Essex Young Farmers county office via the details below.
