Paul Smith, who organises the Easingwold Cycle Sportive, has added a more poignant dimension to the ride this year and the whole of Easingwold is invited to support a fantastic event for the town and for Paul’s grandson, Bailey. Bailey was born with cerebral palsy. Now eight years old, his family need to raise £25,000 to fund an operation to enhance his quality of life. So far, the total raised, through various channels and events, is £6,500. There is still a way to go to reach the required total. With the operation and an intensive course of physiotherapy, Bailey will essentially be able to walk again.
The ride starts in the market place and makes its way through the Howardian Hills, taking in such glorious locations as Ampleforth Abbey, Castle Howard, Kilburn’s White Horse and Byland Abbey. There is a 110km route, a 70km route and a 5km circular route around the town for families. Of the £20 entry fee, £5 goes to help fund the event and the remainder will go towards Bailey’s operation.

This will be a fabulous event for Bailey and for Easingwold. There will be various stalls, activities for the children and a great family atmosphere. Do give your support on 6th August. The first cyclists will set off at 9am and Bailey will be there too!
