Following a successful inaugural event in 2016, the Tour of Broadmead will return to Bristol Shopping Quarter this summer. This is a great way for you to get involved with some standout charities and a great way for you to spend a summers day.
Inspired by the Tour of Britain, the static bike challenge will see representatives from eight different good causes trying to replicate a stage of that tour each day, with plenty of help from retailers along the way.
Starting in Marks & Spencer on Saturday 29 July, when the Lord Mayor of Bristol will shout out “Ready… steady… go!” to officially start the event, the tour will move to a different location at the end of each day, ready for the next charity to start pedalling first thing in the morning. It will finish at PureGym Union Gate on Saturday 5 August.
The first Tour of Broadmead raised £3,700 and the BID team are hoping to exceed that this year.
The charities taking part include Southmead Hospital Charity and British Red Cross London Fire Relief Fund with further announcements due soon.
Bristol Shopping Quarter will be hosting plenty of events through the summer, so, make sure you come on down and whilst you are here make sure to take advantage of the amazing shops at your disposal in The Arcade!
