Team Ripon Choral Cyclists’s story
On Saturday November 10th 2018, to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War, Ripon Choral Society is performing Benjamin Britten's War Requiem in Ripon Cathedral. This magnificent work is on an epic scale, and is very expensive to put on. As a fundraiser to promote the concert, and to allow us all to reflect on the events of 2014-18, a group of Ripon Choral Society members will cycle the entire length of the Western Front, from the Belgian Coast to the Swiss border, in 8 days of cycling, May 8th-16th 2018. We'll call in at monuments, museums and cemeteries along the way. We'll be blogging about our experience as we go. Please support us by sponsoring the cycle ride. 80 of the proceeds will go to Ripon Choral Society, 20 to the Royal British Legion.
