The north east football ground ride

Hi thanks for visiting the FGR website.


We are Marc Hall and Graham Purnell, 2 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 past year over 160 cyclists registered their interest and 110 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 teething issues and route problems encoutered 2020 will have a full change of route to accomadate a full circular route (more to be announced) along with smaller circular routes to help new comers to the sport.


In 2018 I organised the full event due to being away serving his country and 2019 Graham Purnell came back to help organise and make the day.  A massive change to the team in 2020 will see a full team of organisers will be brought together to help create something SPECTACULAR.


The charity which benefitted in 2018 was The RAF Benevolent fund,  2019 seen the chosen charity as The Great North Air Ambulance and this is now something that will continue.

Each year 2 unique jersey's will be designed for you to purchase which will cost £39.99
