Flyers Community To Participate In Break The Cycle 2017

The Bristol Flyers Community team have joined forces with the Bristol Rugby Community Foundation, Bristol City Community Trust, Bath Rugby Foundation and Bristol Sport to take part in Break the Cycle 2017.

Originally a Bristol Rugby event, the Charity Cycle Challenge is now in its seventh year and is set to be the most exciting to date with three new routes.

In previous years, the money raised through this sponsored event has proven to be a vital source of funding for Bristol Rugby Community Foundation and has created the opportunity to make real and lasting changes to the lives of some of the most 'at risk' young people in our community today.

If you fancy the challenge of cycling 35, 65 or 100 miles in one day as an individual, or as a team of friends, then Break The Cycle is for you!

The Bristol Flyers community team work with young people across the City of Bristol to educate, empower and develop individuals through basketball. The Flyers Health Squad scheme is a primary school healthy lifestyle program, that gives children the knowledge to be able to make positive lifelong decisions about their health.

Money raised through Break the Cycle, will enable Flyers to deliver the Health Squad program to more schools across the city.

Bristol Flyers Captain, Greg Streete and first team players players Andy Hambleton and Jordan Nicholls will join the club’s Community Development Officer, Jenny Lewis in cycling the 65 mile course, whilst Bristol Flyers’ first team manager Mike Edkins will complete the full 100miles.

If you are over 16 and would like to take part in Break the Cycle 2017 on Sunday 18th June, please go to http://www.breakthecyclechallenge.co.uk/ for more information about the different courses and how to enrol.

Please join us on the ride to help generate funds to enable us to make a positive change to the lives of young people across Bristol through basketball.
