Standing Together - Support the 112 - 2011
The 112 – 2011
Standing Together are again organising a charity bike ride to take place on the 7th May 2011. We are going to cycle 112 kilometres in one day - that is one kilometre for every woman who dies per year as a result of domestic violence. This was a great success in 2009 and 2010, and we hope to make it bigger and better in 2011. The aim of the event is to:
• Highlight the issue of domestic violence
• Ensure people understand the damage caused by domestic violence
• Raise funds to combat domestic violence though a coordinated response to this crime
Participants can enter in one of three ways:
The 112 – The Challenge
This is for the more adventurous cyclist who really wants to push him or herself. The expectation is that the rider will complete the whole course in a day having passed through 2 checkpoints around the route. Hopefully some form of “peloton” will form to aid progress. The route takes you from Windsor through the Thames Valley and takes in, via generally quiet roads, some lovely villages and scenery to the west of Windsor.
The 112 – The Relay
This is where a group of cyclists want to do the whole route together but do not want to ride the full distance individually. It will require riders to take it in turns covering the route whilst their other team members follow in a car, with others talking over when exhaustion strikes. Logistically this will probably work best with 3/4 riders with a car capable of carrying the spare bikes.
The 112 – The Roundabout
This is a more local approach! A ride for those who want to take part, but are not sure their legs will hold out for the full 112km! This option covers 11.2 miles in a loop on the roads around Windsor Great Park. For those who would prefer, this distance can also be run.
Health and Safety – each rider or team is responsible for their own safety; participants must use an appropriate and reliable bike and should be correctly attired. Participants would be expected to ensure they have sufficient refreshments although we will attempt to secure drinks/snacks for those involved.
Routes – We have maps for these routes. They will be made available to participants on the day.
Numbers for the full distance must be limited to 112 so if you are interested and do not want to miss this opportunity to help make a real difference please read and complete the form overleaf. Places will be snapped up quickly.
