Ride the Equinox for ShelterBox
Thanks to all who took part on Sunday 23rd March 2014
We had 50 road riders this year starting from Devoran - 21 on the 50 mile route, 20 on the 33⅓ mile route, and 9 on the 25 mile route. 4 riders took the 28 mile off-road route starting from Portreath.
The event took place on a blusterous day that started with the odd hail shower but gradually produced plenty of sunshine. Those on the new 33⅓ mile ride had the pleasure of being blown up the hill out of Portreath, but then had to battle near gale force gusts along North Cliffs until their turn inland. The 50 milers were perhaps able to appreciate the shelter of the deep valleys and lanes that characterises the second half of their ride.
Donations going to ShelterBox this year come to £777.37, bringing the total raised by CTC Cornwall events to £6924.40. The Equinox rides started in 2010 and 100% of donations go to the charity.
