The 1st Nello Memorial

Century Cycle Challenge

Sunday July 2nd 2000

In his life, Nello Ghezzo was always an inspiration to others to dig deep and meet new personal challenges. And so he remains today.

In memory of Nello, therefore, we’re throwing down the gauntlet and inviting you to join us on the 1st Nello Memorial Century Cycle Challenge, a one hundred mile group cycle (the more the merrier) that is at once challenging, gorgeous and rewarding. The principal aim is to remember Nello, as well as to raise money for Ride for Life in aid of FORCE and other local cancer charities, and afterwards to reward ourselves with a great pasta feast in true Nello style. Now how can you resist that?

This a friendship ride our wish is to get as many cyclists as we can taking part on the day!
The pasta feast in the evening will be by ticket and will be open to riders, partners, their families and friends.

So bring everyone along!
