Break the Cycle 2020 launched at Ashton Gate

Sponsors, organisers and fundraisers were at Ashton Gate on Saturday to celebrate the launch of Break the Cycle 2020 during Bristol Bears Challenge Cup clash with Brive.

This year’s showpiece fundraising event will take place on Sunday, June 28th and once again, will feature a choice of routes for anyone saddling up for a good cause - Bronze (40 miles), Silver (60 miles) and Gold (100 mile).

Last year’s event raised more than £40,000 for the sporting charities, as 262 riders took part in the flagship fundraiser.

Event director, Paul Glanville, said: “Saturday’s match was a great opportunity to get a great group of people together, spend some time getting to know each other, and celebrate the launch of the 10th anniversary of Break the Cycle.

"We are immensely grateful to all of our sponsors, supporters and fundraisers, and without them, this event would not be as big as it is today. Everyone enjoyed watching the match and we now turn our attention to this year’s event on June 28th."

"The funds raised by the riders and sponsors of Break the Cycle have been crucial to the on-going survival and success of our sporting charities. It is an accessible and enjoyable event that enables individuals and businesses to support some of the most disadvantaged communities in Bristol.

"Break the Cycle has launched new and sustained under-funded programmes that have gone on to win Parliamentary Awards and so I would like to personally thank everyone who has supported and contributed to the event over its ten year history and look forward to our best event yet.”
