Rock to Rocque Cycle Ride
30th May, 2021
The Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice are excited to announce that the Rock to Rocque Family Cycle ride will be held on Sunday 30th May. Following the cancellation of last year's event due to lockdown and 2021 being the 30th anniversary year of the opening of Andrew Mitchell House please sign up and help make it a record year!
The Friends are also delighted to have received sponsorship from the Skipton Community Fund this year and are very much looking forward to working with them on this event.
This round-the-island cycle has 3 different starting points to hopefully suit everyone so you can take your choice from the following;
- Top of the Val Des Terres at 8.45am (unfortunately you are unable to park your car in the field and need to use nearby public parking – the field can be used to drop off your bikes)
- Rocquaine at 9.45am
- Grandes Rocques at 10.45am
(please note that if you have young or under confident cyclists who would still like to take part there is the option for them to join you at Salarie Corner Carpark to ride the final part of the route with you on the cycle path. Please note this is not an official starting point but it does mean that your whole family can take part).
The event finishes on the White Rock in the North Beach Car Park where the Friends of Les Bourgs Hospice cheer in the riders and give out medals to everyone who have taken part until 2pm.
The cycle ride is not a race, but a family event with the route well sign-posted marshals at all key points so you cannot get lost!
The full route takes riders from the top of the Val Des Terres through St Martins, along Fort Road, down past the Mallard Complex to Pleinmont Hill then along the coast all the way back to Town. There are plenty of beach kiosks en-route to stop off for refreshments or scenic spots to stop for a picnic lunch. As long as you reach North Beach by 2pm there is no rush.
This event is also the final ride for the 30/30 cycle challenge participants who arrive at North Beach at midday for their grand finale.
