The fourth annual Jo Cox Way bike ride in memory of the late MP is set to pass through Bucks later this month during the third and fourth stages of its 288-mile journey from her Batley & Spen constituency in West Yorkshire to London.

The group of 50 mixed-ability riders is set to wind its way through many towns and villages as it heads from north to south – with overnight stops in Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Buckinghamshire and Middlesex – and will be joined by other cyclists for parts of the route before arriving at Bankside, Southwark, on Sunday, July 28.

Day three’s 72.5-mile ride passes through Stony Stratford, Beachampton and Nash before arriving at the MK Hotel, Milton Keynes for an overnight stop on July 26.

As the cyclists head off on the 60-mile journey to Uxbridge at 9.30am the following morning, people are invited to go along and show support by cheering them on their way – or jumping on their bikes to pedal alongside for a while or even the rest of the journey.

Day four’s ride will pass through Bucks, taking in villages and towns including Owlswick, Monks Risborough, Green Hailey, Great Hampden, Bryant’s Bottom, Great Kingshill, Holmer Green, Chalfont St Giles and Denham on July 27.

Jo’s sister, Kim Leadbeater, said: “I am delighted that the Jo Cox Way is happening again.

“Having taken part in the whole five-day adventure last year, I was hugely inspired by the amazing group of people who came together and undertook the journey from West Yorkshire to London.

“We had cyclists from many different backgrounds, aged between 14 and 70.

“The camaraderie was fantastic and those taking part found it a great way of combining a physical challenge with the opportunity to meet new people and, of course, to remember Jo and her belief that we have ‘more in common’.”
