Le Tour De Cuisine 2019 – Northumberland Cycle Challenge

Le Tour De Cuisine 2019 – Northumberland Cycle Challenge
Monday 9th September

We are delighted to announce our brand new Northumberland Cycle Challenge as part of Hospitality Action’s Le Tour de Cuisine 2019, kindly sponsored by The Lord Crewe Arms.

Starting and finishing at the beautiful Lord Crewe Arms in Blanchland, there are three cycle routes to choose from and fabulous feeding stations situated at Slaley Hall, Matfen Hall and Twice Brewed, with power pit stops along the way. The short 20 mile ride is perfect for those who fancy a leisurely cycle; for those who are up for more of a challenge we have a 40 mile mid-route; and if these are not quite tough enough, the long 70 mile route might be more to your flavour!
To secure a place, each rider will need to complete the Registration Form included in the Registration Pack and pay a £35 Registration Fee. We ask everyone taking on this cycle challenge to pledge a minimum of £100 sponsorship (not including Gift Aid).

Whichever route you choose, it’s time to saddle up and hit the Northumberland roads on behalf of Hospitality Action!

Here is some information about the day, what to expect, post-race perks, how to sign up and how to pay your registration fee, fundraising tips, links to all the routes, accommodation offers, the pasta supper details and of course training tips and plans to suit your cycling skills and level of fitness.

If you have any queries at all, please contact Kirsty Lyons via klyons@hospitalityaction.org.uk

Come along for the ride and support your industry charity!
