About the appeal
MKRUFC is pleased to announce the first UK only RING OF FIRE bike ride weekend. In 2023 we will be covering three short (?) loops of 50/100/100 miles over a three-day weekend in sunny Norfolk UK.
Based at the Goat Inn at Skeyton , ancestral home in the mid 19th century of the Spinks family, we will cycle three loops. The Friday Fifty, up to the coast near Cley-next-the-Sea, along to Sheringham and back to Skeyton. Saturday 20th we embark on the Norwich 100 loop taking in the rugby clubs around Norwich and back to Skeyton. Then to top it all off we have the 'hangover' Sunday Challenge to conclude the weekend. This last challenge will take us to the East Norfolk Coast. A compact 250 miles over 2.5 days. Overnight camping at the CC Camp grounds at the Goat Inn Skeyton, in between loops.
This challenge is open to both cyclists and newcomers alike. In the past the ROF rides have attracted a 'mixed ability' group of cyclists. We hope that this one will attract more riders that are keen to start their ROF journey.
A support team of 25 volunteers will also be fundraising, and helping the cyclists get round the loops.
We are cycling to support three causes:
1. Willen Hospice Willen Hospice - End of life palliative care (willen-hospice.org.uk)
2. Ed Slater and the Gloucester Rugby 4ED campaign: Gloucester Rugby
3. MKRUFC rugby development and support:
