StreetVelodrome Heading To Cheltenham For Hospital Charity Fundraiser

11 May 2019

StreetVelodrome is set to make its debut in Gloucestershire this summer. Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity are staging a mobile StreetVelodrome cycling challenge to raise money for its CT Scanner Appeal. The funds raised will go towards the £1.2m appeal to buy new state-of-the-art imaging technology for Cheltenham General and Gloucestershire Royal hospitals.

The Olympic-style pursuit racing challenge event will take place on 12th July on Cheltenham’s Promenade and will see 16 teams of four cyclists compete against the clock for the ‘StreetVelodrome’ crown. The day will consist of qualifying heats in the morning, followed by lunch, with knock-out head to head races taking place in the afternoon.

The event is backed by Gloucestershire’s Paralympian wheelchair racer Mel Nicholls who will be taking part in the StreetVelodrome challenge, as well as headline sponsor, wealth management company, Brewin Dolphin.

Judith Rowan, StreetVelodrome’s Business Development Director said: “We are thrilled to be working with Cheltenham and Gloucester Hospitals Charity and its partners in staging this fantastic event. StreetVelodrome is a unique spectacle and always creates a wonderful atmosphere for competitors and spectators alike. The fact that it will be used to raise money for such a worthwhile cause is just fabulous.”
