Sunseeker Team In Training For Macmillan Charity Bike Ride During Bike Week 2016

Bike Week 2016 runs from 11th– 19th June and what better way to celebrate this than by signing up to the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride, which takes place on 3rd July. The annual event, which is open to people of all ages and abilities offers something for everyone, with distances of 10, 25, 38, 48, 60 and 100 miles to choose from.

For the 11th consecutive year Sunseeker International is proud to sponsor the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride in Poole which was started by Peter Smith-Nicholls in 1989, the year after he cycled from John O’Groats to Land’s End following the death of his own father from cancer. Just 42 people took part in the very first Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride, raising £2,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Last year’s bike ride saw Macmillan raise a total of £97,000 with Gift Aid and attracted over 800 cyclists.

Bryan Jones, Sunseeker’s Marketing Manager, said: “We are very proud to sponsoring this event and delighted to see several members of our own team in training during Bike Week for the challenge. Sunseeker will be contributing more than ever this year, ensuring that every penny raised by entrants goes directly to the charity. The work they do is simply invaluable and if you can support them by entering the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride or by sponsoring a rider please do, it really does make a difference.”

Since 1989 the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride has raised in excess of £1 million, all of which has gone towards supporting people living with cancer. Every day 800 people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer which makes Macmillan’s work vital for so many as Peter explains: “We are all affected by cancer, there are two million people living with cancer in the UK and these people don’t just need medical help but also practical, emotional and financial support.”

Peter continues: “Macmillan not only support patients but also helps carers, families and communities. They guide people through the system and support them every step of the way. Crucially, Macmillan supports the one in four cancer patients that aren’t fortunate enough to have a support network of family and friends.”

We will continue taking entries for the Macmillan Dorset Bike Ride throughout Bike Week and you can still take advantage of the early booking fees.
