The Cozens-Hardy Big Cycle Ride

The Cozens-Hardy Big Cycle Ride will take place at Blickling Estate on Sunday 17th July 2016. This friendly event, run by Push Sport on behalf of Cozens-Hardy solicitors, is perfectly located to give access to some of the county’s best cycling lanes and byways and has a host of other activities on hand if riders and their families wish to mix cycling with a bit of history and culture. This is a very flexible and well supported event, offering team and individual entries, with a variety of route lengths to choose from on the day. The entry fee is £20 per individual entry, of which £3.50 goes straight to Big C.

No pressure, ride, eat & enjoy all at your own pace

The Format

The event is based around 3 separate loops of 25 miles. How many you do is entirely up to you, no need to register for a specific distance – just sign up and decide on the day. Each loop heads out in a different direction so you have the chance to explore three quite different areas of Norfolk whilst never being more than 13 miles from the event HQ.

Between loops you can relax a while at event HQ, top up your water bottles with free energy drink and snacks and grab a change of clothing if the weather has changed.

3 loops – you choose how many you ride

NEW for 2016! Big C anniversary loop

New for 2016 to celebrate 35 years of Big C we have added a 3.5km off road loop.  This is perfect for any ability offering a traffic free route with stunning views of Blickling Estate.  So if your loved one is riding 25 / 50 or 75 miles on the road and you don’t want to be left out or you have some eager children then this the perfect way to be involved in the day.  No entry charge will be made to ride the loop but we will be taking donations which will go directly to Big C.

On site mechanical support for any last minute issues
With your support we hope to raise even more in 2016
