Chris Froome has been crowned the victor, signalling the end of the Tour de France for another year. But fear not cycling fans that was just the warm up, now it’s time for the main event. Just when you thought the excitement was over, we’re bringing you the news you’ve been waiting for: the Tour de Jewson is back!
For the fifth year running, people up and down the country will be donning the Lycra and cycling Britain’s roads, all in the name of charity.
On the 12th September, cyclists from seven different locations around the UK will set off on a journey of fundraising. Pausing at pit-stops en-route for some well-earned refreshments, they will then unite at the Jewson head office in Binley, Coventry six days later.
We think this year’s Tour is going to be the biggest and best yet, and we’ve set a target to match. We’re hoping to raise £52,700 to help fund a Macmillan Nurse for a year and provide essential care for those affected by cancer.
But we need your help. We’re looking for cyclists, support drivers and pit-stop hosts of all ages to get involved and lend a hand. Whether you fancy yourself as the next Chris Froome or are new to the world of cycling, the Tour de Jewson is open to everyone.
Whether it’s for a few miles or a few hundred miles, anyone is welcome to come along and join in. Register for the Tour de Jewson and donate here.
