My Story

20 RIDERS, 300 MILES & £20,000

The Tercentennial 300 mile Centre Ride will see 20 Freemasons cycle visiting all the Masonic centres in Leicestershire & Rutland including riding down to Freemasons’ Hall in Great Queen Street, London between 8th - 11th June 2017.

The cyclists will also call at the site of the former tavern, the Goose and Gridiron in St. Paul’s Churchyard where the Grand Lodge was formed in 1717.

The funds raised will be equally divided between the 2022 Festival for the Masonic Charitable Foundation and Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People.

The riders will achieve 12,000 feet of ascent, will have been in the saddle for some 36 hours, and consumed something in the region of 20,000 calories. The distance is approximately equivalent to two stages of the Tour de France.

Leicestershire and Rutland Freemasons will be cycling 300 miles to celebrate the Tercentenary of the Grand Lodge of England and to raise as much money as possible for the Masonic Charitable Foundation and Rainbows Children's Hospice based in Leicestershire.

They will cycle to each of the 11 Masonic meeting places within Leicestershire and Rutland and then head to the headquarters of the United Grand Lodge of England at Freemasons' Hall, Covent Garden in London. When clocking up the 300 miles they will take a short detour to the site of the former Goose and Gridiron Ale House in St Paul's Churchyard, London where the first Grand Lodge was formed before they head back to Leicester.

The route will be spread over four days:

Thursday 8th June 2017
Leicester – Loughborough – Ashby – Coalville – Hinckley – Lutterworth, finishing in Northampton.

Friday 9th June 2017
Northampton to Freemasons' Hall, London.

Saturday 10th June 2017
Freemasons' Hall, London – St. Paul's Cathedral – Northampton.

Sunday 11th June 2017
Northampton – Market Harborough, Uppingham, Oakham, Melton Mowbray – Syston, finishing at Leicester.

The Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People, based in Lougborough, provides care to those that are affected by life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. Helen Lee-Smith, Head of Individual Giving at Rainbows, said: “I would like to thank Leicestershire and Rutland Freemasons for organising their 300 mile cycle ride to celebrate 300 years of Freemasonry and for supporting Rainbows. Leicestershire and Rutland Freemasons are doing a wonderful thing raising funds to help us run the hospice - fundraising efforts make such a huge difference to both the children and young people at Rainbows and their families."

The Masonic Charitable Foundation supports Freemasons, their families and the wider community. David Innes, Chief Executive of the Masonic Charitable Foundation said: “Our work depends entirely on donations from Freemasons and their families across England and Wales, and we are continually surprised and inspired by the unique and challenging ways that they raise funds for us. We wish all participants in the Leicestershire & Rutland 300 mile bike ride the best of luck and thank them in advance for their hard work and generosity.”
