Do you have what it takes to cycle from Park To Park in aid of the Rhondda Cynon Taf Mayor’s Charity Appeal?
Park To Park is a charity bike ride, organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, from the award-winning Ynysangharad War Memorial Park in Pontypridd to Bute Park in Cardiff, with the option of a return cycle ride to Pontypridd.
Organisers are encouraging riders of all ages and abilities to sign up to the challenge, raising a sponsorship target of £100 per person. It is not a race but a fundraising event along the Taff Trail.
Park To Park, which takes place on Sunday, April 27, gets underway as soon as the riders have passed through the registration point, from 9.30am until 10.15am.
Cllr Ann Crimmings, Mayor of Rhondda Cynon Taf, said: “It promises to be a fantastic event, with all proceeds going to my chosen charities - Macmillan Cancer Support (RCT), Guide Dogs Cymru and Diabetes Peer Support for Children.
“These are three charities that remain very close to my heart, and I am delighted to be giving all proceeds of my Mayor’s Charity Appeal to these causes during my term of office.
“There is a common theme linking my three chosen charities this year - each one of them makes a difference and transforms the lives of people living in our County Borough.
“I urge as many people as possible, during these tough times, to support the Park To Park Challenge in aid of worthy causes, either by taking part or by sponsoring our riders.”
The Park To Park charity bike ride takes place at Ynysangharad War Memorial Park, Pontypridd, on Sunday, April 27, with registration open on the day from 9.30am until 10.15am. Riders can set off on their journey as soon as they have passed through the registration point.
