This years nominated charity is Bluebell Wood Children Hospice in Sheffield. We are attempting to raise £2000 so the hospice can buy an emergency ‘care at home’ bag, for the children who can’t leave their homes. If you would like to find out more, please visit their website: http://www.bluebellwood.org/
If you haven’t ridden the Brough Rough N’ before, it is a trial like no other! It is a big lap, all off road, 1 route trial. The sections range from very easy, to almost impossible, but nothing is dangerous! This year is a slight change of format as it will be 3 laps of 15 sections for everybody.
Make sure you bring plenty of cash with you, as there will be a raffle and food and drinks for sale to raise as much money as possible for Bluebell Wood Hospice. We want everybody to get involved in the raffle as there are some great prizes to be won. If anybody would like to donate any prizes then please get in touch.
Directions to the Brough Rough N:
If using a SatNav, please use the postcode: S32 1AH to Abney. Follow the arrows/signs up Duper Lane, this is a very small road that is not suitable for anything larger than a big van. Please do not try and get to the start from Brough using Brough Lane.
There will be direction signs from Hathersage, but if they are missing for any reason:
In Hathersage, take the road to the train station / Grindleford
Opposite the Plough Inn, take the right turn up to Abney. This will be signposted.
At Abney, take the right turn on to Duper Lane.
Observers are required for the event to run smoothly so if anybody can observe then please let us know. You will be given a voucher for the burger van and the usual £20. Obviously with this being for charity it can be donated instead.
Any questions, please contact Jonny Carr on 07981099274.
