What is the Rescue Rides fund raising event?

Rescue Rides is a fun way of fundraising for the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team! It is a cycling event for both road and off-road bikes. It is not a race but an opportunity to take a personal challenge and enjoy the scenery whilst raising money for the Team. The event starts and finishes at the Team’s headquarters in Marsden and offers a choice of distances, terrain and difficulty.  
Find out more about the various routes here.

About the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team

Where would your money go?

The Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team is a voluntary organisation relying totally on public donations for funding. As well as our main Mountain Rescue duties searching for and assisting people in difficulty on the surrounding hills and moors, many of our call outs involve assisting the ambulance and fire services recover casualties from difficult or remote locations or during severe weather conditions and assisting the Police in urban searches for missing persons. All the money raised by this event will go directly to the team.
