26 Nov Pedal for The J’s rides back into Chelmsford in 2019
Chelmsford’s popular annual cycle ride, Pedal for The J’s, is returning to the city on Sunday 5th May 2019 for the 10th year.
Every year, Pedal for The J’s brings hundreds of cyclists from across Essex to Chelmsford, from people enjoying a relaxing, scenic ride to experienced teams from cycling clubs. They have a choice of three circular routes of 15, 35 and 50 miles through the beautiful local countryside, all starting and finishing at Admirals Park, Chelmsford.
The ride is an important fundraising event for The J’s Hospice which supports young adults with life-limiting conditions and their families across Essex, in the comfort of their own homes and in the community.
This year, 770 cyclists signed up across the three distances and raised around £30,000 which helped to pay for a range of services including tailored nursing and emotional care, advice and social activities. In 2019, organisers at The J’s are hoping to see 1,000 bicycles at the start line to celebrate the event’s 10th year and they are encouraging people to sign up now to make the most of the ‘early bird’ prices that finish at the end of January.
