Entries open for cyclists to ride Round the Beat

The Appeal is calling all cyclists to ride 'Round the Beat' in the 5th annual charity cycle ride on Sunday 3rd July.

We've been involved in this fantastic event since 2013 and we're delighted to be partnering with Round the beat once again in 2016.

Launched by West Yorkshire Police Sergeant Dave Holden, with help from his colleague Sgt Darren Beech and friend Mark Atkin, Round the Beat has grown into a fun and challenging sportive attracting hundreds of riders year on year.

With last year's event raising £1,800 for The Appeal, the event has helped us to continue supporting children's and cancer charities across Yorkshire. As all proceeds from the event go to The Appeal, you can support us just by taking part in Round the Beat.

The 2016 event will follow a similar route to last year's event offering cyclists the choice of either a 104 or 50 mile route both of which start and finish at Wetherby Sports Association.


All entrants will get a free Appeal Team t-shirt, as well as fully stocked feed stations along the route. There is also free parking at Wetherby Sports Association for the event, along with a bar for those post-ride refreshments.


Kim Seddon, Fundraising Officer at the The Appeal said: "This will be the fourth year that we have partnered with Round the Beat and the event has gone from strength to strength each year. Alongside raising funds for The Appeal, the event is a brilliant opportunity for beginner cyclists to give it a go on a fun, friendly course. It's also great to see seasoned pros jump on their bike for a good cause."
