Ride for Precious Lives

Friday 7 - Sunday 9 July 2017
Three days, three counties, three hospices…

Ride for Precious Lives is one of the highlights in our events calendar, it is our annual 205 mile, three day cycle challenge.

The ride takes in each of our three children’s hospices; Little Harbour near St Austell, Little Bridge House near Barnstaple and Charlton Farm near Bristol. The buzz and camaraderie between the cyclists over the three days is one of the event’s big draws.

This exceptional event attracts cyclists of all abilities and 2016's event is set to raise £125,000!

Cyclists who have taken part have been inspired by the children and families they met along the way at our three hospices, together with the care team and family members that take part too - and it is this that makes the Ride for Precious Lives a truly unique cycle event and a must do on any cyclist’s calendar.

Raising sponsorship

Your entry fee only covers the cost of participation and therefore we ask you aim to raise as much as you can to help support short and precious lives.

“At Charlton Farm we have somewhere to be a 'normal' family, to make friends with other families who understand, no explanations needed.”
