The Robin Wilkie Memorial Cycle 2008 in Aid of Panreatic Cancer Research Fund

We are delighted to announce the third annual cycle in memory of Robin Wilkie will take place on Saturday 4th October 2008.  If you would like to take part, please register here.  Minimum sponsorship is £30 per adult and £10 per child, of which all funds again will go directly to the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund.

Registered forms must be submitted by September 6th.  This is so we can gauge interest and upgrade on transport if necessary.

Funds raised for PCRF through this cycle in the past have been as follows:

October 2005 – £4,050 (this included other fundraising events)

October 2006 – £2,606

October 2007 – £TBC

It would be great to match or even exceed these amounts.  All sponsorship raised for this cycle go directly to PCRF.  So far, we have not had to contribute any finances towards the transport of bikes (huge thanks to Mike Johnson of P Johnson Blacksmiths in Ratho) or the minibus (again huge thanks to Ratho Community Centre) or the upkeep of the website (even more huge thanks to Kevin Harvey, Robin’s brother-in-law).

The enthusiasm from friends, family, children and of course our wonderful sponsors, is what keeps us going and continuing this gruelling cycle.  Also, the encouragement and grateful thanks to everyone received from Maggie Blanks at the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (please read where your money goes at their website:

Last year there were 33 of us.  Anyone who owns a bike and is up for a challenge is welcome to join us.   However, we can’t do this without you registering – again that date is September 6th.  Please complete the attached form and return it to us at  We will get back in touch with you as soon as we can to confirm your registration.
