The annual Solstice mountain bike ride that leaves from the Pomfret Arms in Northampton will be taking place despite the coronavirus pandemic.  

It departs on the closest Saturday to the Solstice and takes mountain bike riders on a 100 mile loop through Northamptonshire and surrounding counties – as off-road as can be managed.

Cycle4Cynthia - the biggest fundraiser in the calendar for Northamptonshire’s Cynthia Spencer Hospice – to take place on Sunday, 20th September.

It may have finished off the FA Cup final, seen Wimbledon whitewashed and even overcome the Olympics, but the team behind the county’s favourite annual fundraising bike ride are adamant that COVID-19 won’t have them running for cover!
