Lights out for charity bike ride

The British Heart Foundation is calling all off-road cyclists and challenge enthusiasts to take part in the 12 hour ‘Insomnia’ night ride challenge on Saturday 19 September.
This overnight ride is the first of its kind for the nation’s heart charity who will be hosting the 12hour ride in partnership with the Bedgebury Forest CycleClub, from 8pm on 19 September until 8am on the 20th.
Held in Bedgebury Forest , in Kent, this new ride can be ridden solo or as part of a team. It’s a nine-mile (approx) circuit that fully utilises the existing off-road tracks throughout the forest – even harder with the added technical difficulty of being in the dark.
The challenge is to complete as many laps as possible in the allotted 12 hours. Laps will be timed so riders have the opportunity to improve their times throughout the night. With camping facilities and team change-over areas, this self-sufficient event truly offers both an exciting and exhilarating ride. Cyclists need to provide their own bike lights for the event and all cyclists must wear helmets in order for them to be allowed to ride the course.
There are only 500 places available so any interested hard core riders and off-road enthusiasts should sign up today. Interested thrill seekers can call the event hotline on 0808 100 2109 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the website bhf.org.uk/bedgeburynightchallenge
