Welcome to the C5 Cycle Challenge 2019

This is the fifth year of the C5 Cycle Challenge and we will again be riding in memory of Neil “Ginge” Hussey. We have found the event to be an overwhelming tribute to him and a huge accomplishment for all who have taken part.

The C5 Cycle Challenge will start and finish at The Radisson Waterfront Hotel, with three routes planned. A distance of 100km for more experienced riders, departing at 9am, a 55km route for recreational riders, which will leave at 9.15am and a 24km route for casual riders.

At the finish line, C5 will be hosting riders for a drinks and light food reception at The Radisson.

All participants will be required to register with a minimum donation of £10. Profits raised will be in aid of the Neil Hussey Heart Charity.

We hope to reach our biggest fundraising total this year and would encourage cyclists of all abilities to take part.
