George’s Marvellous Bike Ride
George’s Marvellous Bike Ride (GMBR) is an annual family cycling event that raises money for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses.
GMBR was set up in 2012 in memory of George Hutchings from Bradford-on-Avon. George had quadriplegic cerebral palsy and died at the young age of 9 years old. The event aims to raise awareness and money for the voluntary sector groups and organisations who do so much to enhance the lives of children like George.
This year’s event will support the local organisation, Stepping Stones — an opportunity group for children with special needs in the West Wiltshire area. You can find out more about the charity’s amazing work at www.steppingstonestrowbridge.co.uk.
Starting at The Boathouse pub in Bradford-on-Avon, the ride takes in the scenic Kennet and Avon Canal, the famous Two-Tunnels route and the historic city of Bath. There’s something for riders of all abilities, including distances from 11 miles to over 60 for more ambitious cyclists. The route will be marshalled, well-marked and a mix of towpath and tarmac road. Join everyone back at The Boathouse where you will be able to buy food and drink and swap stories of the fun you had taking part in GMBR.
