The annual Cromehurst Charity Bike Ride is on again! The CRSRobo16 will be held on Sunday November 20th 2015 at Robertson in the glorious Southern Highlands.
Organised by keen Sydney cyclist Jeremy Norton, riders will help raise critically needed funds for the Cromehurst Special School.
“My son Jack is 9 years old and was born with special needs,” says Jeremy.
“Due to the unwavering dedication and hard work of the amazing staff at Cromehurst Special School in Lindfield, he and the other kids there continue to improve in leaps and bounds and, most importantly, enjoy life.”
Funds from previous rides have helped establish a holiday care program at Cromehurst along with going towards a huge renovation project at Cromehurst Cottage – a place kids from Cromehurst are taught critical skills to better equip them for life after school and better-contribute to society.
Ride With The Pros
The charity ride is not without its high-profile supporters with previous participants including 2011 Tour de France winner Cadel Evans, Simon Clarke of Team Cannondale and Caleb Ewan of Orica-BikeExchange. Last year Gracie Elvin and Rachel Neylan of Orica-AIS joned the ride.
A 60km event starting at 10am at the Robertson Showground, the ride will take in the stunning countryside and rolling hills of Robertson, Kangaloon, Glenquarry, Burrawang and Wildes Meadow with around 1000m of climbing.
