Clive's Cumbrian Way 2014 - 14th & 15th June

We may be based at one of the best mountainbike trail centres in the country, but that doesn't stop us being into our road cycling, too. As such, we are once again supporting Clive's Cumbrian Way, a stunning two-day cycle ride round Cumbria. Named in honour of Clive Jenkin, a Cockermouth man who passed away from motor neurone disease in 2010, this serious cycle challenge takes place on 14th and 15th June and covers 276 miles.
Clive’s Cumbrian Way was founded by Raymond Paterson and friends from the Honister 92 cycling club. They wanted to do something to remember Clive while helping others. To find out more about the event, please click on the logo.
