Pedal and a pint in charity cycle ride for Severn Hospice

Written on August 25, 2021

Cyclists are gearing up for an annual pedal and pint event to raise money for Severn Hospice.

Newport’s Nova Raiders have organised the Giro d’Joules 2021 after the event had to be cancelled last year due to coronavirus.

On Saturday, September 4, 2021, Joules, the club’s sponsor, will be hosting a charity sport event in connection with the Nova Riders club.

The event will start and finish at the Red Lion (Joules Brewery) in Market Drayton with two routes available – a 57 mile option and a shorter 27 miles.

Both routes head up into Cheshire, with a split at Ash Magna, just before Whitchurch. The longer route skirts the edge of Wales, passes on through Malpas, Burwardsley and the Peckforton Hills before providing a stunning view of Beeston Castle. The routes then merge at Aston for the return leg back to The Red Lion for a well deserved pint.
