The Romeo and Juliet Ride 2020 - Event Postponed

02 June 2020


How about a cycle challenge taking you past the stunning Italian Lakes, on a tour that will depart from Novara near Milan to the medieval town of Verona, the famous setting of Romeo and Juliet.

What's included?

The Shakespeare's Hospice at Home nurses travel approximately 320 miles a week to provide end of life care and support to patients and their families in their own home, where 80% of Hospice patients choose to receive end of life care.

We are challenging you to take on this same distance on your bicycle in June 2020, in the year that The Shakespeare Hospice celebrates it's 21st Anniversary!
