Charity cycling challenges

Hemingway wrote – ‘It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.’

From soaring past the Nile whilst gazing at the pyramids, to waving goodbye to London as you embrace the rolling French hills on your journey to the bright lights of Paris, you will see more of so many beautiful countries than you may have ever dreamt possible.

Our ‘Dream Challenge’ charity bike rides are held all over the world, and offer the opportunity to explore Europe, North and South America, Asia and even Africa - far off the beaten track. This is all whilst raising invaluable funds for crucial charities, helping to support those who need it the most.

'I have just completed the Mumbai to Goa challenge. First off, I would like to say what a fantastic experience it was. Everything from the route, the hotels and the bikes were better than expected. The event staff did a very good job of tackling any issues that were put to them. I met some great people on this trip, some that I would now call good friends, which to me is what it's all about. So I would like to say thank you for putting on such an amazing challenge and hopefully, I'll be doing more in the future.'

- Stephen Bedford, Mumbai to Goa Cycle for Charity 2019 participant

 

'Thank you to... the team for the London to Brighton ride; it was a great challenge and really well organised with a great route and stops.'

- Michael, London to Brighton Cycle Challenge 2021 participant

 

‘Just a note to say what an absolutely fabulous experience that was! So glad that I took the plunge and signed up. I set myself a goal to train hard and get fit for this challenge, which also took me a year and I’m definitely feeling so inspired, and it was a life-changing experience.

Also, a massive “Thank you” to you for all the work behind the scenes. Appreciated it all!’
