Duncan Bradford, 40 from Danbury took part in the 6 mile route with daughters Ella, 7 and Lily 9; “In 2018 I took part in the 65 mile route and had such a fantastic time I wanted to come back again this year with the girls. The 6 mile route was a perfect distance and what with it being such a family friendly event and supporting a local charity, we all had a brilliant time.”
Freddie Joslin, 12 from Heybridge, completed the 35 mile route, being one of the youngest to take part in the distance. “I felt really tired once I’d completed the route but also a huge sense of achievement – I think I’m going to flop out on the sofa for the rest of the day! It’s great to support the charity while also doing something fun at the same time.”
Regular cyclist Kevin Smith, 54 from Dunmow took part in the 65 mile route; “As a keen cyclist, I have taken part in various cycle rides in the past and I have to say that the organisation of Ride for Helen has been fantastic with the routes well mapped-
Think the 15 mile route was brilliant. I thought the day was really well organised and I really enjoyed the ride.
Signage this year was brilliant and the signing back in much better than last year. Goodies at the water stops very good. Everyone was so supportive. Thank you.
The 35 mile route is a nice distance and with the changes made this goes through some very nice countryside. The only thing which maybe good is to have to route going via a nice cafe.
Brilliant day, lived every minute. Excellent staff, very well organised. Fantastic route this year. Really enjoyed it.
Really enjoyable day and route and a very worthwhile cause as well.
Well done, great few hours and fantastically organised. Very friendly as well. Outstanding.....
