Cycle the Solway – Saturday 21/Sunday 22 July

This year’s event will be two days of cycling on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 July.  On the Saturday the 100km and 50km routes will take place – both setting off from Watchtree before heading around the Solway Coast.  On the Sunday they will be hosting a Family Fun Day on Watchtree and encourage fundraisers to complete as many laps of the beautiful nature reserve as possible.  All the routes will be signposted, marshalled and include food stations.

Money raised from the event will be shared between Eden Valley Hospice, Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice and Watchtree Nature Reserve.  Full details of the event can be found here.
