The BHF Goodwood Ride
This Sunday just gone we supported the British Heart Foundation Goodwood ride at the prestigious race course of Goodwood motor circuit. This is the fourth year running that Hargroves Cycles has supported the event and is a great event for all types of cycling.
This year there was a wide range of cyclists from time trial rider’s right through to leisure cyclists on their choppers. In fact I even saw a young boy driving an old fashioned go cart around the track.
We love this event as it has a relaxed atmosphere and in true family event style at lunch time most riders come off the track and have a picnic with their friends and family.
The weather this year was a little patchy; starting off with a few drizzles of rain but then lunchtime onwards it cleared up and was hot sunshine.
Our nearest store to Goodwood is the Chichester store that was on hand to help with any minor repairs and giving out advice to event riders who needed some assistance with their bike.
The organisers from the BHF for this event are the regional division of the charity based in Bognor Regis and are a delight to work with and are very welcoming to the event.
The date for 2016 has not be released yet but if you wish to find out more about this event here is the link for the 2015 event so you can get a sense of the type of event it is.
Certainly this is a growing event so keep an eye out if you wish to participate next year.
