Ian Chatting Memorial Sportive
Taking place on Saturday 9th September, the Chatting 100 is a 100 km cyclo-sportive ride (there is a 40km option available too) around the spectacular roads of the Isle of Wight. The ride is not a race, and riders times will be published in alphabetical order after the event. The route will be well marked, feature feed/water stations at strategic points and on completion, riders will receive a commemorative medal. Post ride, the event will continue with hot food and a cash bar, and camping on-site is available.
Throughout Ian’s life, cycling was his number one passion, so it’s only fitting that we all pedal our way around the Isle of Wight in his memory and to raise stacks of cash for the two charities we are supporting.
Weston General Hospital treated Ian for over 2 years and worked tirelessly to support us in every way possible. They are currently trying to raise £400,000 to invest in new digital scanning and x-ray equipment, and as a family we want to give something back by supporting them in their cause.
Cancer Research UK Over the last 2 years we have learnt many facts about cancer, the scariest being that 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in our lives. The good news is that with increasing knowledge, survival figures are rising significantly. Whilst Ian lived with cancer, we did a number of things to raise money for cancer research and we would like to continue supporting the charity’s hugely important work with proceeds from the Ian Chatting Memorial Sportive.
GKN have kindly supported the event, enabling all ticket proceeds to go to charity.
- The minimum adult ride ticket is £25.00, however if you wish to donate more than the minimum to charity, you can select any of the tickets which are priced incrementally.
- Junior (Under 18) ride tickets are available at £10.00 each.
- ‘Social’ tickets are available at £10.00 if you would still like to support the charities and attend the post ride event, without riding.
- ‘Donation Only’ tickets allow you to contribute a donation to the chosen causes without attending the event. The ticket is set to £10.00, so for example to donate £50, you just need to add 5 tickets to your basket.
***All registered participants will receive pre-event communications detailing exact start location, parking availability etc.***
