Back for its fifth year, Ride Helen promises to be one of the region’s biggest and best cycling events in 2018, in aid of the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity.

Cyclists from across the county will be meeting at The Crix in Hatfield Peverel to take part in this fantastic, family-friendly event which offers a choice of cycling routes to suit all capabilities; 6 miles, 15 miles, 35 miles, 65 miles and NEW 100 miles.

All ages and abilities are welcome to join in as individuals or as a team, and families can enjoy two FREE child places for every paying adult on the 6 mile route. Included in the registration price is a fundraising pack, route maps, route signage, first aid support, mobile mechanic support and recovery, refreshment stops and a medal for finishers.

HRCC Fundraising Manager Kate Alden said: “We are all really looking forward to this year’s Ride for Helen as it’s always such an exciting and popular event which attracts a variety of participants. We have worked really hard to map out the best routes through the beautiful Essex countryside to ensure that all of our riders have a fantastic experience.
