Farnham’s Charity Bike Ride will return this year on a later date of Sunday, September 15.

The event has changed organisers this year with Farnham Hedgehogs taking over from Farnham Round Table.

St Andrew’s School, which launched the first bike ride in 2009, will help the Hedgehogs organise the event.

There will be four distances for the event, 75, 50, 25 and 16 miles, allowing for all skill levels of riders to challenge themselves.

The course is both beautiful and tough as it takes you around the hills and countryside of Farnham and the surrounding areas.

With new organisers come changes, with the biggest change being the later start date.

The Hedgehogs have moved the event from its usual time in July to September because of the congestion of events in the July period. It is hoped this will allow more people to enjoy the charity bike ride.

The other change is riders can select a charity of their choice for all the money they raised to go to when selecting their ticket.

The event is not a race and the aim is to enjoy the ride and raise money for charities. Providing a fun and entertaining atmosphere for all ages. Members of the public will be cheering everyone on around the course.

Last year £20,000 was raised for local charities as well as raising another £16,000 to help the Royal Surrey Cancer Unit.
