Sky Ride Sunday 9 th September !
I will be at Alderman Road from 8 am with Cycle Ipswich stand, Pink Sky Cycling also Re-cycle.org / Karoo Challenge Bicycle Amnesty ( bring along any old unloved bikes ) and Bicycle Doctoring for bikes feeling unwell on the day. If anyone would like to help out please come along ! See you there,…..
Thanks to Mary for the idea; I now have a jar for the weekly donation I have decided on to help raise the 4000£ we need to ship out a container load of bikes and parts to Montagu, South Africa. The container will help William and the Bicycling Empowerment Network South Africa set up a new Bicycle Empowerment Centre ( BEC).
Noelle and I are cycling more than 300 miles through the Karoo Desert over 4 mountain passes, hopefully calling in at BECs on the way to raise funds and awareness for BEN and Montagu’s BEC .
You can make one of these at home, without your parents help !
Please start collecting now and let us know at http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000607508664 my facebook page , tweet @thebicycldoctor, or Noelle’s facebook is http://www.facebook.com/noelle.peacock.
Its a long way to go to 4000£ but I know we can do it !
Thanks very much,
Brilliant charity supported by Sport Relief operating from Alton Water takes people out every Friday .

Ipswich has again been selected to host a stage of the Tour of Britain this year. The first stage of the tour will begin on Sunday 9th September from the Waterfront in Ipswich. This promises to be a full weekend for both sports and recreational cyclists, as the Ipswich SkyRide will also be held on Sunday 9th September.
Cycle Ipswich will be running a number of cycle trains from various parts of town, into the SkyRide.
Following the success of last year, Skyride is set to announce that the Ipswich Skyride will take place on Sunday 9th September 2012. Find out more at /www.goskyride.com/Ipswich
Setting off from Bury St Edmunds, the penultimate stage of the tour (Stage 7) will pass through Lavenham, Hadleigh, Ipswich, Helmingham and Diss before heading into Norfolk, finishing at Sandringham.
This exciting spectacle will pass through Ipswich on Saturday September 17th. The route will have the peloton pass down Westerfield Road, past Christchurch Park and then out of town along London Road, finally turning West towards Hintlesham and beyond.
There is a route map here.
Imagine how great it would be to cycle around Ipswich in a traffic free environment. Well now you can find out. SkyRide is coming to Ipswich this weekend. An organiser told me they are expecting between 5,000 and 10,000 cyclists to congregate in Ipswich town centre on Sunday 12th June.
You can ride any part of the route you want, and possibly meet TV personality Jeff Brazier, Team Sky rider Alex Dowsett and Ross Edgar from the GB cycling team. There will also be related events and trade stands on the Market by Corn Exchange.
If you don’t have a road worthy bike, you can hire one from a variety of sources including the official goskyride.com website, or our very own Bicycle Doctor (see Cycle Shops)
