As many of you are aware Mike Corley (YRCC club secretary) is participating in stage 2 of Cycle GB 2016 – a 600 mile charity bike ride in aid of Benenden Charitable Trust and the Scottish Association for Mental Health (SAMH). Mike will be riding 300 miles from York to Kent.
Mike is an integral part of the club committee and regularly posts weekly routes and club correspondence through the relevant channels. To thank Mike for his continued support in the running of YRCC, the committee has decided to use some of the clubs funds to sponsor Mike on his charity ride.
If you wish to sponsor Mike you can do this via his just giving page: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Mike-Corley-cycleGB-YorktoKent
Good luck Mike from all at YRCC!
