On Your Bike raised more than £6,000 for local good causes this year; more than any previous year. 100% of all entry fees and monies raised will be shared between Sonning Common Primary School, Sue Ryder and the Emergency Dept at the Royal Berks.
“It was a stunning turn-out on a beautiful spring morning,” said On Your Bike founder, Penny Snowden, who cycled 20 miles again this year. “The enthusiasm of all who took part, and the fantastic crew who organised, marshalled and cooked, ensured it was the best event we have ever staged.”
“Our sponsors and supporters have enabled an immense result.” said Penny. “I feel truly thrilled that what began 11 years ago as a one-off cycle ride for the
family, has become an annual event, cherished by our community.”
The number of riders hit a record high this year, with 599 people cycling one of the three 6,12 or 20 mile long routes, plus dozens more little ones joining in
the playground cycle. The event was attended by well over 700 people in total.
