Hi thanks for visiting the FGR website.

 

We are Marc Hall and Graham Purnell, 3 years ago we decided to set up a charity bike ride taking place every year on the first September Sunday. The event which first took place on 2nd September 2018 had 25 cyclist's taking part, then during the course of the next year over 150 cyclists registered their interest and 120 actually took part on the day.  The ride was rougly 75 miles and visited each of the largest football teams in the North East.  Darlington, Middlesbrough, Hartlepool, Sunderland and finally Newcastle, However due to issues with the route, 2020 had a full route change and was made to be circular.  The participants set off from Middlesbrough FC and rode 85.3 miles aroung the beautiful North East of England.

 

2021 will be a year of change again, with more event infrastructure being invested in.  Also 2 routes will also be planned a 50 mile event and a 100 mile event.  Again both routes will be extremly well planned and have full tech and support cover.

 

The charity as always will be The Great North Air Ambulance and this is now something that will continue. we have now raised ove £10,000 from the event and will hopefully smash our targets each year the event takes place.

 

Each year a unique jersey will be designed for you to purchase which will cost £39.99.  This year I am asking the group to design a jersey and will get the organisers to pick the top 3 and put it to a group vote, the wnner will recieve a free jersey presented to them on the day.
