Divas on Wheels 2017 Charity Bike Rides in Kent Cycling / Event / News

Charity bike rides in Kent

We are delighted to announce that the Divas on Wheels ladies only charity bike ride will start and finish at the Freewheel Cycling Cafe in Graveney on Sunday 18 June 2017.  It’s going to be great to have the ladies back at the Freewheel and let’s see if we can raise even more money this year for the Pilgrims Hospices.  The Divas on Wheels is the first women only charity bike ride in Kent.

Why you should take part

If you are new to cycling then have no fear as you have 5 months to prepare and we will be with you all the way to help you get fit and confident on the road.  There are so many reasons why you should consider taking part this year:

  • over 2300 people in East Kent and their families access the Pilgrims Hospice care each year.  By taking part in the Divas on Wheels bike ride you will help the hospice to continue offering free care for people with life-limited illnesses
  • you get to cycle through the picturesque Kent countryside
  • choose to ride either a 25 mile or 50 mile route
  • ride with like minded women and make new cycling buddies
  • after your cycle you can enjoy a complimentary sports massage, visit our hairdressing team to restyle your helmet flattened hair. Then there’s a barbecue, refreshments, lots of retail therapy with some very special cycling boutique stalls and our Divas raffle with luxury prizes
  • all competitors receive a finishers medal and goodie bag
