Mad Summer Hare bike ride returns

Ride with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity in the Midlands’ biggest cycling event.

Calling all cyclists! Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity has partnered with popular cycling event, Mad Summer Hare, and is looking for your support in what is now the West Midland’s flagship cycling event.

The Mad Summer Hare sportive is a flagship ride in the West Midlands that attracts a lot of local riders from across the region. Riders will ride 72 miles to the Cotswolds and back with four big hill climbs, or as many as you can handle, all in support of Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

Due to its popularity and the success of its sister event, the Mad March Hare, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity has become a key partner aiming to raise vital funds for the 90,000 sick children the hospital treats every day.

Dan Fox, Event Organiser for Mad Summer Hare, comments: “We’re thrilled to have Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as our principle charity and above all, we’re super excited to see over 1200 riders raising money for the incredible work they do.”

Miranda Williams, Public Fundraising Manager at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s Hospital Charity, adds: “We are absolutely delighted to be the key charity partner for this year’s Mad Summer Hare. As the major cycling event for the West Midlands, it is certain to be a key fundraising event for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, so it’s fantastic to have their support. We’re grateful to all the riders taking part as they are helping raise the vital funds needed to continue helping our 90,000 sick kids.”

The event has raised over £30,000 for charities so far to date.

The Mad Summer Hare sportive takes place on Sunday 2nd September from Umberslade Farm Park. Early Bird tickets are currently on sale at
