Living Cost Bike Ride
Want to help Labour do better than the Tories or the Greens here in B&H? by doing something fun and good for you?
The Greens have already put together a team, and the Tories are in the process of doing so, for the Living Coast bike ride on July 1st. We are keen to have a bigger Labour team than either of them. You can choose between a 30 mile or a 58 mile ride. Entrants don’t need to raise money for a cause but you could choose to do so for anything including raising money for local Labour Party funds. There are already two Labour entries; Simon Battle (Hove & Portslade) in the 30 mile and Mick Barry (Kemptown & Peacehaven) in the 58 mile so you are already guaranteed company on both distances.
You can sign up here – no team option on the registration but we can get everybody in touch beforehand if you email firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know you have entered;
