Get on your bike for Essex Air Ambulance
ESSEX Air Ambulance will be holding its third Colne Valley Cycle Ride on Sunday May 22 to help raise all important funds for the county’s life-saving helicopter.
There are three routes to choose from; 20 miles, 40 miles and, new for 2011, a shorter fun family cycle ride.
The circular route starts at 9.30am from the Essex Air Ambulance fundraising office in Earls Colne.
A new mountain bike worth �250 is also up for grabs. Visit heart.co.uk/essex to enter!
The helicopter will be operational from the event, giving people the unique opportunity to see the air ambulance up close and personal and meet the crew.

“For the last two years we have been fortunate to have glorious sunny weather and we hope we will be lucky again this year and that even more cyclists will get involved in what is a fantastic way to support the life-saving helicopter!
