Hospice 100

‘Isabel Hospice  invites members to a new event – ‘Hospice 100’, a partnership with Sportive UK. The event will be taking place on the 17th September 2017.

The scenic ride starting at Freeman College in Buntingford has a 21 mile, 42 mile, 75 mile and 100 mile ride on offer. With a choice of 4 distances, club members will hopefully be able to find something that suits all abilities.

The ride includes feed stations, energy drinks and snacks, online published results, fully signed route, mechanic and chip timing and much more.

It costs £20 for the 21 mile ride and £25 for the longer rides and we are encouraging cyclists to raise as much sponsorship as possible on top of their entry fee so you can help us continue to provide vital end of life of care to patients and families across East Hertfordshire.

All members a 20% discount off the entry fee, all you will need to do is type ‘HOSPICE20’ at the checkout.
