Charity cycle ride in support of Disability Action Yorkshire

Published by Harry Long at 7:24am 12th September 2019.

An annual charity cycle ride in Harrogate in support of Disability Action Yorkshire has won the backing of the town's mayor.  

  • The S+SA Architects' 50km ride starts and finishes at the Majestic Hotel.
  • The ride is opene to cyclists of all ages and abilities. 
  • The association between the two organisations goes back more than ten years.   

The S+SA Architects' 50km ride - which takes places today - starts and finishes at the Majestic Hotel, which is hosting a number of para-cycling teams competing at the UCI World Road Cycling Championships.

The ride is open to all ages and abilities.  

The route - which includes a lunch stop in Boroughbridge - has been chosen to appeal to riders of all ages and standards including disabled riders. 

S+SA Architects long-standing association with Disability Action Yorkshire began more than a decade ago, when it drew up plans for the charity's Claro Road residential care home.

S+SA Architects director Mark Fisher said:

"We are really looking forward to this year's ride which, as ever, is being held to raise money and awareness of Disability Action Yorkshire.  It will fantastic having the Mayor and Matthew joining us. We are expecting up to 20 participants on the day, including Jason Richards, who will be undertaking the challenge on a hand cycle."

Jackie Snape, Disability Action Yorkshire Chief Executive, said:

"Once again we are indebted to Mark and the S+SA Architects team for not only organising this annual ride, but for choosing us as the beneficiary. Over the years, Coun Martin has become a very good friend of ours and it's wonderful that he will be riding for us. I'd also like to thank the Majestic Hotel for offering to host both the start and finish, which is very much appreciated." 

Councillor Stuart Martin said:

"I'm really looking forward to the day where I will be getting to swap my mayoral chain in favour of a bicycle chain. And because it's for Disability Action Yorkshire I didn't need asking twice."
