The London To Leeds Masonic Cycle

On July 2nd 2017, seven Masonic cyclists, from several lodges within West Yorkshire, are raising funds for West Riding Masonic Charities Limited and Breast Cancer Haven. The group are planning to cycle from Grand Lodge in London to Castle Grove Masonic Hall in Leeds, within 24 hours.

Nigel Ziff, the organiser and one of the cyclists said: “We have secured sponsorship from several local businesses, whose generous contributions have ensured all costs have been covered.

“We will be supported with a van, two support drivers and plenty of drinks, energy gels and chamois cream. We are planning to complete the 210 mile journey in around 14 hours, and hoping some additional cyclists will join us on the last 40 mile section from Doncaster. Details of the route will be posted on the L2L facebook page a few weeks before the ride.

“All funds raised will be divided between West Riding Masonic Charities Limited and Breast Cancer Haven. West Riding Masonic Charities Limited assists the wider community with grants for community projects, and supports Freemasons and their dependents when in need. Breast Cancer Haven offers free emotional support, help and practical advice to anyone affected by breast cancer from its network of centres.

“All donations will be gratefully received.”
