      Ride for the 96 2013 - Attention cyclists and anyone wanting to support
      Mar 21, 2013 04:35:39 pm
      Hello all.

      Some of you may remember that last year I raised nearly £5000 for the Hillsborough Family Support Group (HFSG) and the Hillsborough Justice Campaign (HJC) by riding my bike from Norwich to Sheffield to Liverpool, in memory of the 96 fans who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster.

      Since the ride I received many emails and phone calls from people wishing to be involved in the ride in future years, so for 2013 I have worked with British Cycling to organise a 96km ride, open to all.

      The event is called Ride for the 96 and takes place on Sunday 28th April 2013 starting and finishing in St. Helens and heading north into Lancs and around the top of Ormskirk.

      For this year, again 100% of monies raised are being allocated to charities, including Alder Hey Childrens Charity, the 23 Foundation and the Steven Gerrard Foundation.

      Full details of the ride can be found on the official website:

      http://www.rideforthe96.co.uk

      with news via the twitter page http://www.twitter.com/rideforthe96 and the Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/rideforthe96

      The ride is limited to 300 places and they're filling up fast, so if you'd like to take part then please register as soon as possible.

      Alternatively if you'd like to support the riders, then you can donate/sponsor at http://www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/rideforthe96

      Hope to see some of you on the day!

      Cheers,

      Ben

      A few words I wrote.....

      September the Twelfth

      September the twelfth 2012
      The day the world heard that the panel had delved
      In to thousands of files so the truth could be told
      To a trusting public left shocked and cold
      But what was revealed had long been known
      By ninety six families who had lost their own
      By the many survivors who witnessed the crush
      And by every Liverpool fan tarred with a brush
      “It was all your fault, you killed your own!”
      Just one of the lies finally shown
      Orchestrated cover ups and a web of deceit
      Designed to divert blame away from the feet
      Of those who chose to take the cowardly way out
      And manipulated the media to cast public doubt
      For those 96 people that took their last breath
      A coroners verdict of accidental death
      An arbitrary 3:15 cut off with no just grounds
      To ensure that the guilty would never be found
      ‘The Truth’ was the headline for disgusting allegations
      The truth is they lied that’s the damning condemnation
      Eight thousand five hundred and fifty one days passed by
      Since the fifteenth of April Nineteen eighty nine
      Finally exposed all the dirty foul tricks
      Intended to prevent JUSTICE FOR THE 96

      Cheers Kenny, not long to go now.

      225 riders registered, some special guests coming down to set the riders off.
      Should be a great day!

      Still on the lookout for some extra marshals, so if anyone can spare a few hours on Sunday, let me know subsy@rideforthe96.co.uk
