Bristol Sport Quartet Join Sponsors For Break The Cycle 2017 Launch

Supporters, sponsors and organisers joined players from Bristol Rugby, Bristol City and Bristol Flyers at Ashton Gate on Wednesday (January 4th) to officially launch Break The Cycle 2017.

Luke Arscott (Bristol Rugby), Taylor Moore (Bristol City), Brandon Boggs and Aaron Cosby (Bristol Flyers) joined some of the event’s official partners for a short reception - hosted by chief community officer Ben Breeze - in the Lansdown Stand at Ashton Gate.

Representatives of Bath Rugby Club, who have once again teamed up with Bristol Sport Foundation for this year’s event, were also in attendance – as was Kevin Dunn, whose cycling journey began at Break The Cycle and has since led to him representing Great Britain in the UCI World Masters.

“We are very grateful to all of our sponsors, partners and supporters who help make Break The Cycle the huge success that it is and has been in the past,” said Breeze.

“It was also great to have some of the city’s leading sports people in attendance as we begin the countdown to Break The Cycle 2017 on Sunday, 18th June.

“Last year we raised just under £30,000 - but with Bath Rugby joining us once again this year, a choice of three routes of varying distance and the growing popularity of Break The Cycle, we are confident we can top that in 2017.”

Cyclists will be able to choose between a 35, 65 and 100-mile route while taking in the stunning West Country scenery along the way.

The choice opens the event up to cyclists of all abilities and experience and allows more people to raise funds for Bristol Sport Foundation. A further change allows fundraisers to select which charity, within Bristol Sport Foundation, they would like to raise money for, allowing them to choose between Bristol City Community Trust, Bristol Rugby Community Foundation and Bristol Flyers Community.
