The Nello Bike Ride 2019
The Nello 2019
The 20th year of the Nello bike ride will take place on Sunday 30th June. This is going to be a huge landmark for this event – not only for FORCE and the founders of the ride but for so many people who have ridden in so many of the rides and for whom this event has its own significance.
In honour of its Italian connections, the 2019 ride on Sunday June 30 has been dubbed Il Ventesimo (The Twentieth).
Since the first Nello Century Cycle Challenge in 2000, the ride has raised more than £900,000 for FORCE, which works locally to support anyone affected by cancer, face-to-face and close to home.
The ride has grown from attracting a field of 90 cyclists in that first year to demand for 2019 expected to outstrip the 1,500 places usually available. So please do not delay – enter today and be a part of this very special year.
We feel it is only fitting to set the event a target of raising a record £100,000 from next year’s ride, taking the overall total raised for FORCE to the magic £1million mark.
Entry is now open via the FORCE website – www.forcecancercharity.co.uk
Entry Fees 2019
For Entry from January – midnight on 23rd June 2019: £37.50
For Entry from 24th June onwards: £50.00
Entry closes when we reach 1500 participants. If any places are available on the day the charge will be £50.00 per person (however we do not anticipate places being available on the day)
The classic hundred mile pedal from Topsham over the roof of Exmoor and back is one of the highlights of the annual cycling calendar offering great scenery; superb climbs and far reaching views. The 55 mile route, splitting from the 100 in Tiverton, heads across the County and offers an abundance of scenic country roads, a superb break in Nomansland and great camaraderie.
Both rides start and finish at the Topsham Rugby Ground.
The Nello is not a sportive; it is a charity bike ride, raising vital funds for a local cancer charity. The ride is NOT chip timed; it is NOT a race. All cyclists are welcome to enter this event but we ask them to bear this in mind when entering.
