CF Jubilee Spinathon Logo

To celebrate the Queen's platinum Jubilee in June, we will be running a Spinathon Fundraising Event: Cycling for 70 hours to mark 70 years!

What is the CF Jubilee Spinathon?

We are assembling a team of riders who will cycle in shifts to keep the pedals turning nonstop on two spin bikes for 70 consecutive hours, from 5pm on Wednesday 1st June until 3pm Saturday 4th June.

One bike will be based outside at the front of the community centre during the day, with another situated indoors in the Wright Room for the overnight shifts. 

What are we raising money for?

All funds raised from the event will go towards the much-needed upgrade of our audio-visual equipment throughout our rooms and halls to benefit our users and visitors. Last year we raised just over £2,000 towards this project by taking part in the Ilkley Half Marathon, with the help of Ilkley Grammar School.  This year, we're aiming to better that amount with an even more ambitious event! 

How can I take part?

You can also contact the office on 01943 607016, on email [email protected] or come in to the centre in person to get your sign-up form to join our team of riders.  We're asking all riders taking part to aim to raise at least £10 through sponsorship. 

Everyone is welcome to join, whether you can cycle for 15 minutes or an hour, we need your help to complete the challenge!
