For our fifth year, The Silverdale Sling at 60km is one of the trilogy of rides making up our Wrynose or Bust event. It is a charitable fund raising sportive that to date has raised nearly £30,000 for our charities. The three routes are as follows: Wrynose or Bust 188km (117 miles); Bay Dash 115km (72 miles) and The Silverdale Sling 60km (37 miles).
Starting and finishing at Halton Army Training Camp near Lancaster, this route tracks around the top end of Morecambe Bay through our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty around Yealand Conyers, Silverdale, Arnside, Sandside before returning to Halton via Heversham, Priest Hutton and Sunnybank.
We offer our riders some cracking countryside around North Lancashire and Cumbria and any net surplus goes to our chosen charities. The event is organised by the Rotary Club of Lancaster and a few cycling friends and this year we are mainly supporting Unique Kidz.
We have car parking at the camp, toilets, event timing, feed station, marshalls, hot food at the finish and showers. We have two recovery vehicles and have the support of RAYNET to help with communications.
