For six years hundreds of fundraisers have enjoyed the sun, rain and fantastic views of the Solway Coast at the annual Cycle the Solway event.

The hospice’s premier cycling events is a fantastic, family friendly event help on the quiet and relatively flat roads of north west Cumbria. The four routes provide the perfect challenge for cyclists of all ages and abilities, from the serious club cyclists to families and fundraisers enjoying a good day out.

Eden Valley Hospice and Jigsaw would like to thank Scott Self Storage for their phenomenal hard work in support of the hospice and establishing and organising Cycle the Solway between 2011 and 2016, in which time the event raised almost £60,000 in aid of the hospice.
