Ride Scorpion 2017

Ride Scorpion 2017On 6th May, through the windy yet dry weather, keen and novice cyclers took on the third year of our Ride Scorpion event. It was a lovely day and a great atmosphere. Everybody finished and had a great time enjoying some of the best views that the Cotswolds can offer, followed by food and entertainment at the Howard Arms pub in Ilmington.

Cyclists rode four different routes: A large group cycled from Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire; another group completed a 100mile route from Great Ormond Street Hospital in London; whilst others chose the 66mile or 20mile loop to and from the Howard Arms.

Over £10,000 raised already with donations still coming in. The money raised through this event will go towards our funding of the UK SMA Research Consortium. It will make a huge difference as we advance towards a cure and treatments for those diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy.

A massive thank you to all those who took part but also to everybody else involved with making the event a success. We had some fantastic volunteers, including Juliet Hope and her team, who provided an amazing spread of food and drink at our pit-stop in Bucknell village for all cyclists on the longer routes.
