Pedal with the President for Charity
The President of the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) Jon Pycock will be donning his cycling lycra for charity on Sunday 3 June 2018. He
will be hosting the first ever BEVA President’s Challenge Cycle Sportive and is inviting cyclists of all abilities to join him to help raise important funds
for the BEVA Trust and Vetlife.
Jon Pycock, Yorkshireman and accomplished sportivist, has devised the fundraising event as part of his BEVA Presidential year. He has laid down three challenging routes to suit all abilities, over the same roads used by the famous Ron Kitching the champion 1930s road racer. Each route starts and finishes at the iconic York racecourse and will be fully supported with excellent signage and feed and watering stops along the way.
Participants can choose from a 35 mile largely flat ‘trot’ which takes in the city of York, a 66 mile slightly hilly ‘canter’ skirting the Yorkshire Wolds and a 91 mile ‘gallop’ over the Rosedale Chimney, which, according to Jon Pycock has “enough ascent to make Sir Chris Bonnington happy!”
He said: “Cycling has long been a passion of mine and I would love to welcome you to join me on whatever distance you fancy. This is a ride for everyone, not just vets. The views will be spectacular and it is not a race so you can take it easy and enjoy the scenery while you catch your breath.”
The BEVA Trust provides opportunities, support, and funding to allow members of the veterinary team to volunteer for projects that seek to enhance equine welfare both locally and globally, and in partnership with other organisations.
Vetlife is a charity providing emotional, financial and mental health support to the veterinary community.
