SAMS RIDE 2021 HAPPENED!!
SUNDAY 1st AUGUST 2021
Thank you to all of those who took part and helped to put the event together - pandemic restrictions aside we hope you had a great day, and we hope next year to be back to our winning sportive formula
This was our 6th SAMS RIDE event and we have raised nearly £150,000 of vital funds that keep your local branch of the Samaritans open. Please continue to support us on our journey and we hope to be back next year.
Sams Ride is an annual very friendly, non-competitive charity Cycle Sportive in aid of the Samaritans of Salisbury and District that is now recognised as one of the premier charity cycle sportives in the Hampshire and Wiltshire region. Since 2015, we have had over 2,500 entries for Sams Ride raising nearly £150,000 in the process.
Sadly, we had to cancel Sams Ride in 2020 due to the pandemic but we are planning to hold a restricted size event in 2021 on Sunday 1st August with the ride HQ atTest Valley Community School, Roman Road, Stockbridge, Hampshire, SO20 6HA
The Samaritans continue to play a vital role and have been under understandably enormous pressure over the last year, more so than ever, particularly with self-isolation being a real challenge for those living alone who need support. The Salisbury branch still needs to raise vital funds this year and any support that you can give will be gratefully received.
Thank you to all of our helpers, supporters and riders - Sams RIde would not happen without you! If you would like to be involved in Sams Ride either as a sponsor or a helper with the event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
