Get on your bike for prostate cancer

We’re delighted to announce that this year Rotary will be officially kicking off the Rotary Ride where we invite you to don your Lycra and get on your bike for prostate cancer.

Rotary Ride is a national initiative taking place on Saturday 18th June in which Rotary clubs across Great Britain and Ireland will be hosting a range of cycle rides for all ages and abilities. Newton Stewart is inviting  members of the community, just like you, to join them and get peddling to raise money for prostate cancer, a disease which affects so many families across the UK and Ireland.

The aim of the ride is to raise as much money for prostate cancer, through a Fun ride – this is for all  abilities. It is an ideal way for amateurs and families to get involved through an event that is fun for all.

We are doing this for local men and that is why we are targeting the Saturday of Fathers weekend.

Well not only is it a great way to help raise money for prostate cancer, a condition that affects 250,000 men and their families in the UK and Ireland every year and is set to become the most common of all cancers in the UK over the next decade or so, it is also a fantastic way to get involved in your local community through teaming up with your local Newton Stewart Rotary club.

What are the benefits of cycling?

Cycling is a low impact exercise, which means it is easier on your joints and helps to improve your overall fitness and lose weight in the process. It is also a sociable activity, meaning it’s great to do with friends or encourage your family to join you. It is also a great stress reliever and by regularly cycling it can help to improve your overall well-being.

Please register for the event through Rotarian Allan Marshall or Rotarian John Burns at J and B Print and collect a sponsorship form.  Sponsor forms will also be available at Kirkcowan Cycles

Join us on the 18th June to pedal together in the sprint against prostate cancer around the Machars about 26 miles. All junctions on the route will be marshalled and checked.
