The Chris Kirkpatrick memorial ride
A group of Leeds Beckett Staff rode the Way of the Roses from Morecambe to Bridlington over three days in July 2017.
We are starting in Morecambe on Friday the 14th and hopefully will be dipping our toes in the North sea on Sunday afternoon. Some of us are regular long distance cyclists, some of us are rather terrified by the scale of the endeavor.
This will be a fundraising and memorial ride for Chris Kirkpatrick a former member of Leeds Beckett staff who is no longer with us.
We are keen to celebrate Chris's life and his love for cycling as well as raise as much money as possible for a couple of charities that we feel Chris would be very supportive of.
