Many people taking part in this year’s events were also doing so for the first time; so it’s not just the serious cyclists that are raising money but those new to cycling.”Mark said that the recent event: the Right to Play Edinburgh to London Bike Ride – involving 100 cyclists riding 540 miles from the Scottish capital to the English capital over six days, staying in halls of residences each night and riding up to 90 miles a day – raised almost £90,000 for the charity Right to Play.The money raised will help protect 6,700 children in developing countries from AIDS, malaria and war. Right to Play uses sport and play to provide basic education to 720,000 children in 23 countries every week and to give children the life skills and confidence necessary to make the most of their lives.Pennine Events specialises in organising sports, leisure, and health events, for councils, charities, health authorities and private companies, across the country.
