On the morning of Saturday the 26th November at 10.00 the ‘Biking to New York’ team, Stonham Volunteers and RUCST, will be starting to hold social bike rides from the New York Stadium.
For the first 2 rides, 26th of November and 10th of December we have been invited for ‘Coffee & Cake’ by the Planet X team, on Magna Way, but for the rest of the season we hope to continue these rides on the canal path once it re-opens.
Primarily, the hope is to encourage more people to share the benefits that cycling can bring to physical health and wellbeing, so the rides will be of an ‘easy’ level. In addition to this, Pedal Ready and the Rotherham Cycle Boost (Hub) teams also plan to join us.
Paul Truin, Volunteer Coordinator at Stonham, said, “Rotherham Utd Community Sports Trust have always been great in supporting cycling initiatives, including fund raising rides for the National Autistic Society and Prostate Cancer UK. Following our volunteers promoting cycling, Biking to New York, during the past 3 years the next step of organising bike rides from the stadium came naturally. Regular cycling brings many benefits, and starting with supported social rides is a brilliant way to begin. Cheers”
Jamie Noble, Head of Community said “ We are huge supporters of all health and exercise work not just football, cycling is a great way to stay fit and healthy whilst also see the beautiful surroundings and encourage people to leave the car at home to ease parking and reduce emissions”
We would also like the sessions to help ‘identify’ those more accomplished cyclists who perhaps would like to consider representing their club on the massive ‘Football to Amsterdam 2017’ bike ride, on behalf of Prostate Cancer UK, Rotherham United and the Football League.
