The riders for the Myton Hospices Cycle Ride 2016 started their epic journey at Myton’s Warwick hospice on Sunday before taking to one of three different routes through Warwickshire’s beautiful countryside venturing further afield and taking in the Cotswolds. The shortest route was a mere(!) 50KM, with a 100km and a 100mile routes available to those prepared to withstand the saddle sores! As if the two longer distances weren’t enough, the riders that tackled the 100km route also had to contend with a climbing in excess of 3000 ft during their ride. This pales into insignificance when compared to the 6000 ft altitude change faced by those taking on the longest ride. Thankfully, the weather was really quite kind to the riders – a nice warm day with no rain at all. Congratulations to all who took part and well done to all of the finishers.
It was great to have been invited along again as the official photographers for the event. This year we had three photographers covering the day in the hopes of photographing most of the intrepid riders. We covered the start/finish area in Warwick, the 50km route at around the 18 mile mark and the infamous Saintbury Hill on the longer rides where we were shooting the #KingOfTheMytons.
All of the photographs are available in our charity events gallery and a donation will be made from all sales to the Myton Appeal. In addition offering standard prints, we are offering commemorative montages featuring your name, route and finishing time – just look under the “montages” section in the gallery. The photographs will be available from Monday morning at the very latest. You can register with the gallery to be notified as soon as they are available.
