AC Goatham is gearing up to support two great cycle rides for business teams and individuals in a bid to get people fitter and healthier in 2020.
The Medway-based company grows British apples and pears in Kent every year, packed full of goodness.
Eating fresh and local British fruit as part of a healthy and daily diet and maintaining an active lifestyle can bring many benefits, not just to you, but to your workplace as well.
Eating healthy foods and exercising regularly has many benefits including:
The start of a New Year is a great opportunity to re-evaluate your health and lifestyle choices and also encourage those of your work colleagues.
Forget Friday nights in the pub, there are many individual and team activities that you can take part in here in Kent and Goatham’s is delighted to support two fantastic cycle rides that welcome business teams and individuals.
Both are rides and not a race, so no one is left behind, and training help and support is provided in the countdown and on the ride.
So if you are looking for the support and motivation to get fitter and healthier this year, dust off your bike, get a few miles of practice under your belt and come and join in this summer, whilst helping to raise money for two fantastic organisations, Help for Heroes and Kent Sports Trust.
Now in its sixth year, Cycle 4 Heroes is the perfect one-day ride for both serious and recreational cyclists and it’s fun too.
Join Help for Heroes top fundraiser Steve Craddock on a 75km route, which offers teasing climbs, fast flats and stunning scenery.
Taking place on Saturday, June 27, the ride starts and finishes in Medway and at the finish, forms a spectacular peloton as part of the Medway Armed Forces Day celebrations. Sign up now at www.cycle4heroes.com
For those looking for a longer challenge, join Kent Sports Trust for Kent’s only 3-day cycle ride, The Goatham’s Great Kent Cycle Ride, from Friday, July 3 to Sunday, July 5.
This annual 3-day cycle event covers over 200 miles of the beautiful Kent countryside.
There will be vineyards, brewery stops, castles, pretty villages, coastal paths, history and breath-taking scenery.
The rides start and finish at Goatham’s headquarters at Flanders Farm, Hoo.
You can sign up now for just £75 and you will receive all food and refreshments across the 3 days, including breakfasts, lunches, water stops, and evening meals.
You will also receive overnight accommodation for two nights, luggage transportation, insurance, medical support, bike mechanic support, a fully marked route, sports therapy, a cycling top and medal.
You must also commit to a minimum fundraising amount of £600 or there is the option to fully self-fund the 3-day ride.
There are only 80 places available for this 3-day sportive allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
Places will be confirmed upon receipt of the £75 registration fee. Click here to register.
Make 2020 the year you improve your health, be happy and more productive and make some great friendships on the journey!
