Shakespeare Ride

Oxhill Welcomes The Great Shakespeare Ride 2014 on August 17th.

Cyclists will make their way through Oxhill as part of the 40 mile route of The Great Shakespeare Ride.

The ride is in aid of The Shakespeare Hospice and attracts hundreds of cyclists every year from all over the country. Last year the event raised 35,000 to help provide care and support to families in need of Hospice care in South Warwickshire and the North Cotswolds.

Starting from Stratford Manor Hotel at 9am, the ride also offers longer sportive distances of 100 miles and 100 kms for more proficient cyclists who are looking to test their legs on our challenging hills. The much flatter 40 mile route has been introduced for the first time in 2014, to give beginner or less experienced cyclists the chance to take part in a mass cycling event while supporting and raising sponsorship for their local Hospice.

To join in the cycling experience and celebrate the recent fantastic success of British cycling, visit www.thegreatshakespeareride.org.uk to sign up!

As part of the 40 mile route there will be a feed stop at Oxhill Village Hall to give the cyclists energy for their next stint! We are very grateful to Karen Barker for supporting us with the hall costs.

As well as looking for cyclists, we are looking for volunteers to help on the day.

Firstly, we need people to make & serve sandwiches (ingredients will be provided), cakes and drinks. If you can help with the catering or by providing a cake, please contact Tricia Harbour on 680676.

Secondly, we need people to marshal on the route to help keep the cyclists safe. If you can help in this way, please contact Lily on 01789 266852 to find out more.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
