I am taking part in the Rotary Dorset 8th Annual Bike Ride and will be cycling the 35 mile course with friends. I am doing this to raise money to help beat rare cancers. My wife, Phyllis was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma in the chest region. She had a mastectomy and removal of about three quarters of her pectoralis major muscle at the Royal Marsden Hospital in Chelsea on August 8th 2019. The operation went very well and the sarcoma was removed leaving a good margin of healthy tissue. She has a follow up meeting at the Royal Marsden at the end of August where it will be decided whether she needs radiotherapy.
We are delighted to confirm that the annual Rotary Dorset Bike ride will be taking place on Sunday 8 September 2019, from Longthorn Farm, Wareham.
The Rotary Bike Ride has gained an excellent reputation for great routes through the Dorset Country lanes as well as being very well orgnaised and a great day out for all involved, to date the event has raised over £270,000 for life saving research.
On the day: Riders can expect routes to suit all abilities, from a family ride of just 10 miles to the returning challenging 100 mile route for hardened cyclists (there are also additional routes of 20,35,55, 70 & 80 miles). To find out more and to register please visit our website.
