A shortage of volunteer marshals has forced Essex & Herts Air Ambulance to cancel its Summer Cycle Ride in Hertfordshire.

It was hoped that hundreds of cyclists would sign up for the fundraising event on July 1st, raising thousands of pounds for the life-saving Charity. Organisers had prepared four routes ranging from 3 to 80 miles, each starting and finishing at Welwyn Rugby Club.

Fay Boissieux, Events Manager said: “We’ve tried hard to recruit enough marshals to ensure the safety of those taking part, but have not been successful. Without enough people, it would be unwise to let the event go ahead.”

“We can only apologise for any inconvenience. Cancelling an event is never something we like to do, but in this case we feel it is our only option. We realise that cyclists who have already raised sponsorship may be worried about letting their sponsors down, but we believe most people will be happy to continue with their donation to the Charity.”

Anyone who has entered the event and would like a refund should email Alternatively, they can leave their ticket to be processed as a donation.
