Denise Lewis to take part in the first ever Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbonride

Denise Lewis will be among hundreds of riders at Blenheim Palace on August 21st decked out in pink taking part in the first ever Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbonride.
Over 5,000 people are expected to take part in the festival of cycling across a variety of challenges on August 21.  This include the Brompton World Championships, Sportives, a time trial and  a family ride.  Olympic gold medallist Denise Lewis launched the 26.2-mile Ribbonride at Blenheim Palace.
Denise said: “I’m really into cycling at the moment.  It’s a great way to keep fit and to enjoy the local countryside.  The chance to cycle through the beautiful grounds of Blenheim Palace, which is normally closed to cyclists, is a great treat and I really hope I can join the team for the Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbonride.
“I’ve been an ambassador for Breast Cancer Care for many years, and they do brilliant work supporting people and their families through the terrifying experience of breast cancer so I would urge as many people as possible to take up this challenge and join us at the Pink Ribbonride this August.”
Heather Pigott from sponsors Oakley UK said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the first ever Breast Cancer Care Pink Ribbonride.  Breast cancer is a cause that’s very important to us as an organisation and we have raised over £50,000 for Breast Cancer Care since 2009 through a range of events and donations from the sales of our charity edition eyewear.  We’re very much looking forward to joining the team at Blenheim for what is set to be a fantastic day.”
