CONGRATULATIONS to all the riders from across the region who joined the NSPCC's Manchester to Liverpool Bike Ride on Sunday, 26 May 2013, to help support vulnerable children. Over 760 riders of all ages, abilities and aspirations took to their saddles and joined the route from Salford Quays Watersports Centre through Manchester via Old Trafford and Stretford, before joining the Trans-Pennine Trail to Otterspool Park in Liverpool. Riders enjoyed either the 39 mile route, or a fantastic new 55 mile road route which was new for this year, for all those riders seeking a challenge.

NSPCC volunteers and supporters from across Manchester and Liverpool were out in force to cheer the riders on and offer encouragement along the way.

Organisers anticipate the bike ride will raise over £20,000 for the children's charity which will help support it's new ChildLine Schools Service. Particularly focused on nine to 11 year olds, the ChildLine Schools Service aims to help them understand what abuse is, including bullying, how to protect themselves and where to get help and support if needed. The service is led by volunteers who are trained to deliver safeguarding assemblies and interactive workshops in schools.

Helen Gazzola, community fundraising manager for the NSPCC, said:- "A big well done to all our fantastic riders who took part in the bike ride. We were delighted to see so many people come and enjoy a fantastic day. There was great atmosphere and we are on target to raise a record amount of money."

If you'd be interested in taking part in a bike challenge for the NSPCC or for further information about supporting the NSPCC locally, please call:- 0844 892 0253 or by email.
