17/04/2015

Gamma’s hitting the Cannock Chase Forest trails in June this year for the Gamma Charity Mountain Bike Challenge 2015.

While it offers the chance to spend some time in the open air on the award-winning mountain bike trails of Cannock Chase Forest, the main aim of this event is to raise money for the Samaritans and Rays of Sunshine charities. There’s an entry fee of £150 per person and Gamma will be hosting a charity auction as part of the event, with all money raised going directly to the nominated charities.

This two-day event is taking place over Wednesday 3rd and Thursday 4th June and is ideal for both occasional and seasoned bikers.

Bob Falconer, Chief Executive, Gamma says: “We’re really looking forward to this year’s Gamma Charity Mountain Bike Challenge and are thrilled to be supporting two fantastic charities; Samaritans and Rays of Sunshine. As well as raising funds for these well-deserving causes, it’s a great opportunity to spend a couple of days in the Staffordshire countryside with fellow cycling enthusiasts from around the channel. ”

Dan Cunliffe, Director, Rock Systems says: “I find the Gamma charity events fantastic. Not only are they a great networking opportunity, you get to raise money for good causes too. All in all they are always something great to be a part of and we can’t wait for the Charity Mountain Bike Challenge.”

Over the two days, participants will work together to complete various activities including mountain bike orienteering, mountain bike trail riding and distant riding time trial.

Registration for the Gamma Charity Mountain Bike Challenge is now open although places are limited to ensure participants get the most out of the event. Interested parties can find out more and reserve a place by clicking here.
