Ride for Precious Live
3 days, 3 counties, 3 hospices…
Ride for Precious Lives is one of the highlights in our events calendar, it is our yearly three day cycle challenge. The ride starts in Cornwall and ends in Bristol taking in 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 has raised over £335,000 in the last five years!
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 on any cyclist’s calendar.

Event Review 2014
Friday, 11th - Sunday, 13th July 2014
The Ride for Precious Lives event was a huge success this year with 70 riders, 3 days, 3 counties and 3 very special hospices. We waved them off from Little Harbour and from there they have created so many special memories, met new friends and taken on hills that challenged like they’ve never been challenged before. We had a huge welcome party waiting for the riders on the Downs in Bristol for the closing of the event. The riders were overwhelmed by how inspired they were by this event and we would like to say a huge thank you to each rider for being such a wonderful member of this year’s team.
The weather was prefect for riding conditions, sunshine and clouds and only a drizzle of rain occasionally to cool the riders off.
The atmosphere was unbelievable, the riders were so supportive and encouraging of each other, waiting back to help any riders that were struggling. They were challenged to the limits but each stop at the hospice and the talk from bereaved granddad John Wyatt inspired and motivated them up every hill. There were many tears along the way, of reaching the top of the hill, of hearing the stories from our families, of making new friends and special memories.
There is pledged to raise over 75,000 and don’t forget there will be a prize draw around the 29th August, so if you can get your sponsorship to us within this time frame, you will be in for a chance of winning a prize.
Thank you to each rider for the lovely messages and feedback you have been giving us on how fantastic this event is, here is just one of them for you to read:
"I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am to you and all the team for your support and encouragement this weekend.
I did the ride last year with my wife, did it this year on my own and was a little nervous being a solo rider.
You and the CHSW team provided so much support, so many words of encouragement and flapjack!!
YOU all did an amazing job and the success of this event was down to amazing organisation." quote from a 2014 rider.
