On Friday evening Lion President Martin and his wife HeIen, walked into Wetherby for a curry - he's so cosmopolitan you know ! En route he noticed 14 children riding round the pump track being supported by 22 parents! It seemed it was such a nice evening that those who built the track could not resist getting together and using it. As usual they were keen to express their thanks to the Wetherby Lions and they asked him to join them for a photo. Lion President commented “I think this is one of the best projects we have funded”.
With the better weather and more opportunity to get outdoors to start training, now is the ideal time to commit to this year’s Great Yorkshire Bike Ride taking place on 17th June 2017. Now in it’s 34th year this well-established, popular family bike ride organised by promoter John Taylorson MBE and Wetherby Lions takes place to raise funds for many Regional and local charities including Wetherby Lions.
The Great Yorkshire Bike Ride is an annual 70 mile sponsored charity cycle ride from Wetherby to Filey. This ride takes in some of Yorkshire best countryside through the Howardian Hills and the Yorkshire Wolds to the coast.
Every year 2,000 cyclists of all ages and abilities take on the challenge of this great Yorkshire event. Come and join us this year on Saturday...
