Pedal for the J’s is on Sunday 28th April 2013 – three beautiful circular routes, 15, 35 and 50 miles starting and finishing in Admirals Park, Chelmsford.
Now in its fourth year, this successful cycling event once again promises to be a great day for experienced cyclists and novices alike.
What could be better than spending a Sunday cycling through Essex villages and countryside, enjoying the late April sunshine, absorbing the beauty of the countryside and perhaps enjoying a short stop for lunch or a drink at one of the village pubs or cafes en route? We are inviting couples, families and friends to take part in Pedal for The J’s, now in its forth year, a successful charity bike ride that draws people from across Essex with excellent reviews on its organisation and variety of routes.
The event will take place on Sunday 28th April 2013 and promises to be a great day out for experienced cyclists and novices alike. The ride takes in some of Essex’s most beautiful villages with a choice of three routes of 15, 35 and 50 miles. All routes will start and finish at Admirals Park in Chelmsford with the 15 mile route taking in the Chignal’s, Pleshey and Great Waltham and the longer ones travelling west towards Hatfield Heath and then back through the Rodings then all three rides join up at Pleshey. The spirit of the event is ‘taking part’ so you can go as fast or slow as you like.
This year’s event is proudly sponsored by “Martin & Co Chelmsford” who are entering a team of staff to take part. Training has already started and they are looking forward to the challenge!
The J’s Hospice provides hospice care in the home for young adults throughout Essex. Due to improvements in medical care and technology, the population of young adults with life limiting conditions is growing. But at 19 years old, these patients have outgrown children’s services and need age appropriate care and support. The J’s Hospice team provides hospice, medical, nursing and respite care for patients, carers and their families. They also provide emotional and bereavement support. The long term aim is to build a stand-alone hospice building in Essex.
