In Aid of
The Shakespeare Hospice

Sunday 23rd August 2020 – Walton Hall Hotel & Spa, Walton, Warwick, CV35 9HU

Back in its **10th YEAR**, The Great Shakespeare Ride is back, with rides that suit cyclists of all abilities.

The challenging ‘100 mile Sportive‘ will take you to your limit, while the ‘100 km Challenge‘ is a tough undulating route, but definitely achievable.

New for 2020, and in celebration of The Shakespeare Hospice’s 21st Anniversary is a ‘Friendly 21 milespecial Anniversary Ride – a beautiful, flatter route along quiet roads and the perfect choice for those new to cycling or who want to celebrate with us – perfect for those supporters looking for a ‘21 Challenge‘.

You can check the routes and elevation on each ride to see what challenges await you on the fantastic courses that roll into the hilly Cotswolds.

The ‘Friendly 21 mile’ is a slight variation on last year’s 50km ride – all the official mapmyride links will be emailed to participants before the event.

Please note that online entries will close at midday on Friday 21st August* but entries will be accepted on the day and during the previous afternoon of Saturday 22nd August.

Last year, the cyclists that took part in The Great Shakespeare Ride, helped to raise over £18,000.

By entering this challenge you are helping to support the services of The Shakespeare Hospice.

You can help raise invaluable funds for The Shakespeare Hospice, by pledging to raise just £21 in sponsorship, in keeping with our 21st Anniversary theme this year.

Fun Finish Line! We wanted to really get the atmosphere just right for our brave riders so why not bring your family and friends along to support. With the historic hall, lovely lake area and plenty of lawn we think it’s the perfect setting!  There’ll be lots for friends and family to enjoy whilst they wait to cheer you over the finish line.  Walton Hall is set in stunning Warwickshire countryside, with rolling hills and winding country roads.
