Roll up, roll up. Announcing Perthes Association family cycle challenge. 29th April at Markeaton Park in Derby.

Carl Andrews has once again managed to source (incredibly cheaply) and hire of a fleet of adapted bikes – including hand cranks, side-by-side tandem, wheelchair bikes, trikes and a quad for people to use.

Message from Carl: 

Hi all. To confirm the 2018  Perthes Association Annual family Cycle ride will be on the 29th April at Markeaton Park in Derby at 11am. We have a fleet of adapted bikes for children and Adults in all stages of their Perthes journey. The ride will be 3 miles (or 5 laps of the park). Then we will run a mountain bike skills course for the kids. Big thanks to Christine Kelly of Derby Council for all her support in this. Last year we were able to raise over £1000 but that’s not the main purpose of this year’s event. If you would like to raise money, we would be happy to supply sponsor forms or I can help you to create a personal JustGiving page (we found they work better) xx

The route will be on smooth Tarmac and will be 3 laps totalling 3 miles. Don’t worry if this seems too far – just do as much as you can comfortably do.

The goal of the event is to raise awareness of Perthes disease and to enable families to meet up and chat.
Please email fundraising@perthes.org.uk OR CONTACT: CARL ANDREWS OR PERTHESLADY ON FACEBOOK! if you want to attend.  Tickets are free but will be needed to access free 
refreshments.
