The three Rotary Clubs in St Albans join together in May to stage our biggest event of the year the St Albans Charity Cycle Ride (SACCR). More than 1100 cyclists take part. They have the choice of riding though our beautiful Hertfordshire countryside the 40 miles to Hitchin and back or taking a 30 mile, 20 mile or 10 mile route. The starting point is Oaklands College off Hatfield Road.
Some cycle individually, others enter in teams. Each of the three Rotary Clubs nominate a charity to receive funds from their share of the proceeds. In 2018 ours will be Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Cyclists can enter as a team and donate their sponsorship money either to our chosen charities or to charities of their own choice. You can register to participate using the SACCR web site www.saccr.co.uk from early in February.
All riders receive a SACCR Tee shirt and those completing their course are given a medal.
The 40 mile route is fully stewarded with stop off stations along the way to provide water. First aid and bicycle repairs are also on hand.
This is a huge organisation for us and we rely on our band of enthusiastic volunteers to augment the work of our Rotarians.
We take action locally and globally. Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.
