This is the first time the Hospice has organised a cycle fundraising event and with all routes passing through Portsmouth and Southsea, their events team are encouraging Strong Island followers to take part.
Routes range from 3.5 – 60 miles and cover the whole of The Rowans catchment area – from Eastney Swimming Baths right up to Petersfield.
