Break The Cycle 2018 fundraising passes £40k mark

Break The Cycle 2018 proved to be a record-breaker for Bristol Sport’s family of charities, with more than £40,000 already raised by the annual bike ride on Sunday, July 1st.

More than 250 cyclists saddled up to raise vital funds for their chosen sporting charity, taking on one of three routes – 40-mile, 60-mile, 100-mile – through the picturesque West Country and South Wales countryside.

“It is impossible to express just how grateful we are to everyone who took part in and supported the event - participants, fundraisers, volunteers and event partners,” said event director, Paul Glanville. 

“We are thrilled to announce that we have already raised in excess of £40k, with fundraising still open for a while.

“The money raised through this event will continue to make a hugely valuable contribution to the funding of our work. 

“We hope to announce a date for next year’s event soon and look forward to welcoming everyone back to Ashton Gate Stadium for Break the Cycle 2019.”

In temperatures upwards of 25 degrees celsius, the hardy riders were welcomed back to Ashton Gate by complimentary Heineken and Nando's at the stadium, as well as a much-needed sports massage.

“Break The Cycle is a crucial fundraising event for Bristol Sport Foundation and the family of fantastic charities that deliver life-changing interventions for people in the Bristol community who need it most,” said chief community officer, Ben Breeze. 

“Funds raised have launched new, award-winning programmes and saved under-funded projects, maintaining support for parts of the Greater Bristol community that need it most.”
