Help for Heroes Ride to Recovery series ‘Colchester’ 

The Mission: To raise funds and awareness that will ultimately provide direct, practical support for wounded, sick or injured servicemen and women!

The Help for Heroes bike rides are signature events and we all hope this ride will be just as popular, with thousands of you joining to support and raise awareness for wounded servicemen and women. 

The R2R Series will take place on four Sundays in 2012, each based at one of the new Personnel Recovery Centres (PRCs) for which the series is raising money. The PRCs provide wounded Servicemen and women with a supportive, yet familiar military environment, in which to recover once they have left Headley Court. You can join as an individual or in a group, bring your family and friends and maybe even ride in Fancy Dress – together, you will all make this a ride to remember!

The Personnel Recovery Centre in Colchester Garrison will be the first purpose-built facility of its kind and will provide residential accommodation for 29 soldiers and 31 day attendees. By joining this cycle you will be raising funds for this PRC, for more information about Colchester PRC click here.

The R2R Colchester will take you through the rolling countryside that surrounds this beautiful area, with the long route reaching as far west as Castle Hedingham and North to Sudbury. We are delighted and honoured that the finishing point will be here at The Hare and Hounds and plan to lay on a welcoming BBQ and drink! So we urge you all to come along and help us give them a hero's welcome! 

H4H are delighted to accept younger supporters over 9 years old on the Rides to Recovery. Please note, the ride takes place on the roads and children must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Help for Heroes cannot accept responsibility for your child on the day. To register participants under 18 years old, please contact H4H and we will be happy to help.
