The Great Hotel Bike Ride 2019

3 July 2019

We are delighted to announce that entries are now open for the fifth edition of the Great Hotel Bike ride and can't wait to get back on the road with all of you!

Of course, Neil Bowler has been very much in our thoughts and following last year’s events, we are dedicating this year’s ride ‘in loving memory to Neil Bowler’. We will be remembering Neil in a number of ways along the route and will further organise a First Aid Course once riders have signed up and we know numbers. We hope you will all join us again but of course also understand should anyone decide not to ride this year. Should you have any concerns / questions and/or thoughts about this year’s ride, please do reach out to us.
The route of the 2019 ride (circa 350km over two days) will remain the same and the number of riders will be capped at 30.
However, after four years and increased cost, we had to slightly raise the fee to £175 per rider (see website for what is included) and fundraising will be through corporate jersey sponsorship and personal initiatives. 
With Neil in mind, our chosen charity this year is the British Heart Foundation, which as you know funds research to beat heartbreak from heart and circulatory diseases. Our aim is to really smash the £10,000 goal this year!
Please do take a look at the video of Laura’s story below and an article on athletic hearts.
Please do feel free to spread the word – we would love to have a team of 30 riders this year.
Entries are on a ‘first come first served’ basis and secured with the payment of the entry fee in full.

We also welcome enquiries from potential sponsors of the bike ride which would include logo placement on all jerseys. If this is of interest, please reach out to Nina Gold at or Joe Stather at
Any feedback on the website and enquiries regarding riding or sponsorship are very welcome. Thank you for your continued support.
