Clarke Foley Jubilee Spinathon | Discover Ilkley

Clarke Foley Jubilee Spinathon

Clarke Foley Charity Spinathon 1st - 4th June

To celebrate the Queen’s platinum Jubilee The Clarke Foley Centre will be running a Spinathon Fundraising Event: Cycling for 70 hours to mark 70 years!


Teams of riders will cycle in shifts to keep the pedals turning nonstop on two spin bikes for 70 consecutive hours, from 5pm on Wednesday 1st June until 3pm Saturday 4th June.

One bike will be based outside at the front of the community centre during the day, with another situated indoors in the Wright Room for the overnight shifts.

All funds raised from the event will go towards the much-needed upgrade of the centre’s audio-visual equipment throughout their function rooms and halls to benefit the users and visitors.  Last year just over £2,000 was raised towards this project by taking part in the Ilkley Half Marathon, with the help of Ilkley Grammar School.  This year, it is hoped to increase that amount with an even more ambitious event!
