On 20th July 2014, with the help of South Hereford Garages Ltd, the event looks set to attract even more people onto their bikes to enjoy the beautiful Herefordshire countryside.

South Hereford Garages Ltd have got behind this community event by agreeing a three-year sponsorship deal. Staff at the Herefordshire Audi and VW dealership voted for St Michael’s Hospice as their chosen charity after their colleague, Sam Cottrell, was diagnosed with cancer.

Sam said, ‘Just knowing that the staff at St Michael’s Hospice are there for me, if and when I need them, is a great comfort to me. It’s reassuring to know that they will also be there for my children and my husband, if they ever need support. The thought of a hospice scared me, but when I visited St Michael’s for complementary therapy, it had such a warm and loving atmosphere. The staff show so much compassion – it’s tear-jerking to see this aspect of human nature.’
