Bob Mansbridge Memorial Ride 2019

BMMR 2019 setting off

We are delighted to announce that this year’s ride has raised £1870 for Parkinson’s UK.

An appreciation from our patron, Chris Opie

My wife (Meike) and I had a lovely day, even with the downpours of rain.
It was a really special day, I saw and spoke to many people that were on the rides back in 1997 when I first started cycling with Truro Cycling Club and Meike completed her longest ride since 2009!
I’m really pleased to hear that so much money has been raised for both charities, it was great to see so many cyclists leaving Truro that Sunday!
Some feedback from other riders:

“Beautiful ride today despite the really wet roads later on, thanks guys”.

“Thanks.  Really enjoyed the ride.  Well organised and great route.”

“Thoroughly enjoyed the ride and offer our thanks to everyone who helped out for all their time and effort (Oh and my sister, who has Parkinsons, added her thanks to all the participants as well, when she heard about it).”

“The ride went really well didn’t it? Good it was sunny for setting off else I might have been deterred! Well done to you all for organising it- no mean feat.”

Thank you for organising such a fantastic event.”

The rides will take you along the picturesque lanes of mid Cornwall, and have been designed to give you plenty of opportunities for refuelling.  This year we have 4 choices of distance – including a 25 mile ride for less experienced/younger riders.

Please come and sign in at 108 Coffee House, Kenwyn St, TR1 3DJ (opposite the William IV pub).  The rides leave at different times (see below) – please be patient and let riders on the longer rides sign in first.  You will be given a ‘brevet card’ and we ask you to complete this with an emergency contact number.  This card also has phone numbers in case you need to contact us – remember to let us know if you will not be coming back to 108 at the end of your ride.  Be thoughtful about where you leave your bike, there shouldn’t be much motor traffic, but pedestrians still need to use the pavement.

Car park information here:  Unfortunately, you can’t take bikes on the Park and Ride Buses.  There is also free on-street parking in various parts of the city.

Rides start and finish at 108 Coffee House, Kenwyn Street, Truro, TR1 3DJ.

Note: The refreshments will be at a new location on Beacon Drive this year – which is a different place to last year.  There will be drinks, cakes and toilets all available here.
