Thursday, 13th October 2022

Impsport are proud to be part of the organising committee for the C2C2C organisation, raising funds for Lincolnshire charities!

In June over 500 cyclists took part in the annual C2C2C 100 mile Charity Bike Ride across Lincolnshire.The event, which last year celebrated its 10th ride, is an annual event organised by a group of volunteers, including volunteers from Ringrose Law, and other local businesses in Lincolnshire.

The ride is open to anyone who wants to ‘give it a go’ and sets off from Nettleham Rugby Club, across the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds to the coast and back again – all in a day’s work!! This year over 500 individuals from across Lincolnshire rode the event and a great day was had by all. View and join the the route on Strava and for an extra challenge the Appendix Route !


C2C2C was established in 2011 as a way to get more people cycling, raise some money for charity and have fun. Since 2011 the ride has continued to grow, becoming one of the most popular events in the sporting calendar in Lincolnshire.
David Burgess one of the original organisers of the event is delighted by the success of the event-

“In 2011 there were just a handful of us who decided to plan this bike ride across the County for a bit of fun. We soon realised the event was becoming very popular and started to plan and adapt it accordingly.
We now have a team of volunteer organisers all from local businesses in Lincoln who coordinate the event, and over 50 volunteers who help with the event on the day.
Since that first ride over 4000 people have ridden C2C2C, with over 1000 people riding 100 miles for the first time. All these riders have helped raise over £190,000 for local charities since 2011, and we are all extremely proud of these numbers.”

The ride this year helped raise just under £40,000 to four main charities, Headway Lincolnshire, EDAN Lincs, Just Lincolnshire and St Barnabas Hospice. Anna Davies, Fundraising Manager for EDAN Lincs attended the event and was waiting at the finish line for the riders to return. Anna said-

“We would like to express our thanks to C2C2C for choosing our Charity and the invitation to attend. It was an excellent event and extremely well organised.  We would also like to thank C2C2C’s sponsors without whom the event wouldn’t have been possible. The funds raised will help support victims of domestic abuse with one-to-one support, counselling, essentials for those who had to flee to the refuge as well as those in the community who experience/experienced domestic abuse. Last year we have helped over 4,000 people in Lincolnshire and the funds are very much appreciated to offer extra support.”
