Dental professionals urged to join charity cycle to raise money for good causes

Dental professionals have been invited to take part in a cycling challenge in the Peak District to raise money for good causes.

Mydentist has organised the event, which is open to all. There will be a choice of routes available, including a 50km, 100km and 16km circuit. Dental professionals from around the country will be participating to raise money for Dementia UK and Bridge2Aid. 

The event will take place on Sunday May 22nd. Cyclists will start at Hassop Station in Bakewell. There is no fee to take part, but those who wish to join have been encouraged to try to raise as much money as possible. 

The proceeds of Open Ride 2022 will be split equally between Dementia UK and Bridge2Aid, a dental charity, which supports projects across the world. 

Mydentist chief executive, Tom Riall and director of private and specialist, Nick Marston, have signed up for the event and are hoping that hundreds of others will get involved. The cycle challenge is an excellent opportunity to take on a physical test while making new friends and raising money for two brilliant charities. 

Speaking about the event, Tom said that he is a keen cyclist, as is Nick, and the duo wanted to do something fun that would bring dental professionals together to support good causes. The event is open to everyone and promises to be a fantastic occasion in a fabulous setting, which is ideal for cycling. 

On the day, riders will be able to choose between different routes, including a 16km course for beginners on the Monsall Trail and there will be a stop-off for refreshments. Further details are available here.

Any cycling enthusiasts who wanted to take part but are unable to make the date are encouraged to complete the challenge at home.
