Riders on their bikes for the Tour d’Ilmington
IT wasn’t a race and cyclists could go at their own pace during the Tour d’Ilmington David Lockwood Memorial Ride on Sunday, which raised over £3,000 for charity.
Over 150 cyclists took part, choosing between a flat, ten-mile run for families, or a more testing 20-mile, hilly route for keener cyclists.
The money raised will be shared between Parkinson’s UK, the Graham Fulford Charitable Trust, and various chosen charities of Rotary Club of Shipston, who were the organisers of the bike ride.
Now in its second year, the ride, from Newbold Village Hall, was blessed with brilliant sunshine.
Bob Armstrong, from Shipston Rotary, said there were no tumbles along the way.
He added: “It was a very good turnout and conditions were perfect. We said to everybody before is started that it wasn’t a competition, it was a fun race for charity. We’ve had plenty of feedback from people saying how much they enjoyed the event.”
