We did great on Love to Ride during Cycle September taking second place in various categories including Most Miles (5,484 miles), Most Riders and Collective Days Ridden. A few of our riders got keen and committed to ride 1000 miles each during October and with the month not yet over they have succeeded. Together we have achieved an incredible 7,400 miles and topping various other categories including Most Rides (326).
Come and join the Love to Ride group CyclingUK Stevenage
– we want to make an effort to maintain our top position on the Love to Ride site during November and to help raise funds for three local charities Stevenage Community Trust, Haven First and Sport Stevenage. Stevenage Mayors Charities
