CARDIFF CITY FC FOUNDATION | MEN OF HARLECH BIKE CHALLENGE
We are excited to reveal the first ever Cardiff City FC Foundation Bike Challenge, with 15 riders set to cycle from Harlech to Cardiff as part of the ‘Men of Harlech Bike Challenge’.
The ‘Men of Harlech Bike Challenge’ will see staff, fans, partners and beneficiaries get on their bikes, tackling the tough September conditions from North to South over a three-day period – and facing a climb of over 10,000 feet!
Cardiff City FC Foundation Director Gavin Hawkey expressed his excitement about the event, saying: “It’s fantastic that our staff, partners and beneficiaries alike are all so proactive in helping the Foundation expand its reach. It’s a challenging task, but one we feel will help us in our mission to tackle inequalities in sports participation.
“We want everyone to enjoy the benefits that regular participation in sport brings regardless of background and circumstance.“
The money raised during this event will be used to help tackle inequalities in sports participation, encouraging more disabled people, women & girls, children from BME communities, and children living in poverty to take part in sport.
The Foundation would like to thank Tredz, our official bike suppliers, who kindly agreed to loan bicycles to each member taking part in the event.
Jamie Davies, South Wales area manager for Tredz added his thoughts on the upcoming challenge and the involvement of Tredz, adding: “It’s an honour for us to be able to support the Foundation in its quest to not only start a bike challenge of it’s own, but also in tackling inequalities and providing more opportunities for people of all kinds of backgrounds across South Wales.”
Cardiff City FC Foundation have set a target of raising £4000 during this 195 mile challenge. You can donate to the cause by clicking here. All donations are appreciated.
