The first Wirral Bikeathon was held in 1999 when 700 riders took part and raised an astonishing £23,000. The event has been held in June every year since, come wind, rain or shine! Since then, a total of £880,000 has been raised by our fantastic supporters for Bloodwise. We are a local branch of the Bloodwise charity and currently have about 10 active members. Our branch is comprised entirely of volunteers who in their spare time raise funds for this valuable cause. The event is organised entirely by a small group of local volunteers with help on the day from around 100 marshals and supporters.
