On Saturday 17th March 2012, Stockport County supporters are getting on their bikes for the ‘County Charity Cycle’ to raise money for good causes.

The bike ride will follow a route from Stockport County FC`s stadium at Edgeley Park to Southport FC`s ground at Haig Avenue, ahead of the fixture between both teams in the Blue Square Premier League.

Co-ordinated by County fans, Russ Johnson, David Roe and Adrian Stores; and Amanda Brown from St Ann’s Hospice, the event will raise money for St Ann’s Hospice and Stockport County Supporters’ Co-operative.

Catering for leisurely, fun cyclists and more seasoned riders, the ride is open to all who want to join in.

Anyone wishing to take part should be 16 years of age or over. Cost of entry is £15 and all riders gain free entry into the match, courtesy of Southport Football Club. The selected route covers a total of 46.7 miles, and is flat.

Southport’s Director and Commercial Manager, Haydn Preece, comments: ‘Of course we will give free entry for those cycling as fundraisers on the day’.
The generous sponsors assisting the County Charity Cycle include Bullocks and P Fahey & Sons (who will return the cyclists and their bikes respectively to Stockport), Parfetts, Life Leisure and Decathlon.

The leading fundraisers from males and females will receive a special, limited edition ’26 – Cycling” 3 piece kit from the Olympic Range of clothing kindly donated by Adidas.

A great cause and good to raise the clubs profile. I hope to feature more from the fine folk at the Supporters Co-Op in the future.

  • A fantastic cause and great that we are getting plugged back into the local community. I know quite a few local businesses got burnt when we went into admin, just the sort of people and outfits we do not want to hurt. The club has to cement itself back into the minds and then the hearts of the people of Stockport and its environs.
