British Heart Foundation Norwich 100 / 50 Bike Ride 2012 teamEnjoy cycling whilst getting some fresh air and exercise? Why not take part in some fundraising and have fun whilst cycling in safety at this year's British Heart Foundation Norwich Bike Ride. You don't have to ride far - you can choose the length of your route and cycle 25, 50 or the full 100 miles. The ride starts and finishes at Norwich Cathedral and you can enter online here. Adnams has a team of six riders in this year's event, including Chris Parker who at the age of 14 rode as a member of the National Junior Squad. Chris had to give up cycling when he was 22 years-old due to a knee injury, but after a long healing process started cycling again last year. Chris Parker competing at The Tour of Britain 2011Chris explains, "I'm coming back for more in 2012! I did the 50-mile Norwich ride last year, which wasn't quite enough for me, so I'm going for the 100-mile route, which I know is relatively flat until you get near Sheringham. The British Heart Foundation Norwich event covers some lovely countryside, with gentle gradients and nice roads. I'm so pleased to be cycling again after a break of over 10 years. I've clocked up 4,000 miles on my bike over the last year, including 127 miles at the Tour of Britain event, and I'm looking forward to this year's challenge." Even if you are not planning on riding this year, come along to Norwich Cathedral on Sunday 27th May to show your support. Members of the Adnams team will be there all day serving a range of fresh beer for thirsty onlookers and happy finishers. Look out for anyone in blue and white spotted cycling tops - that's our Adnams riders - and please give them a cheer.
