Whilst there’s currently no cure for a broken heart, for one organisation there is hope.
The British Heart Foundation are trying to raise £50million to fund groundbreaking cardiac research in a bid to “mend” the hearts of the 275,000 people who suffer heart attacks each year in the UK alone. Departing from York St John University’s sports centre, the York BHF branch are inviting the city to join them for the ‘Heart of York’ sponsored bike ride to help raise money for the cause.
On Sunday 9th September two circular routes will depart from our historic city: the first is a 22 mile cruise across the picturesque flats of the Yorkshire countryside, including the hauntingly beautiful moorland of Strensall Common. The second stretches across 40miles of challenging terrain through the Howardian Hills and up a tough ascent to the village of Hovingham.
The event is open to riders aged fourteen and over with entry fees costing £16.00. All funds raised through the entry fee (after event costs) will go towards the Mending Broken Hearts appeal, alongside the sponsorship raised by participating riders.
Advanced registration is available online until Friday 31st August. From the 1sr September there will be an additional registration fee charge of £20.00.
