Three routes: 36 miles, 60 miles and 100 miles
Join us on Sunday 9 May 2021 where Team CHSW will take to the roads to raise smiles for families and children with life limiting illnesses.
For the first time you have the opportunity to apply for one of Children’s Hospice South West’s charity places at one of Cornwall’s most challenging events – the Eden Classic Sportive.
The Eden Classic is a non-competitive mass participation cycle ride offering three spectacular rides that take in the most scenic parts of the south coast in Cornwall. Riders have a choice of three route options, ranging from a short yet challenging ride of 36 miles to a middle distance of 60 miles, and a long ride for the experienced sportive rider of 100 miles.
We are inviting cyclists who would like their next cycling challenge to apply for one of our charity places and raise sponsorship dependant on the length of the route. The money raised will go towards supporting children with life-limiting conditions and their families in Cornwall and across the South West. Simply click the sing up button and select a chairty place ticket.
Own Place Cyclists
If you have already bought a place for the Eden Classic and would like to use the opportunity to raise sponsorship for Children’s Hospice South West, sign up via the “Own Place” Button. There is no minimum sponsorship required, we just ask you raise as much as you can to support the children and families currently being supported.
