Each Team member rides their chosen stages of the route, while a Team mate drives to the next stage point in what will be the riders' personal support vehicle.

About the Event

This event has been cancelled

Info for Riders

The ride begins at Putney Bridge, tracing the course of the river through the Thames Valley and ending near its source, the Thames Head, in the Cotswolds.
This is a non-competitive cycle challenge, along an iconic route which crosses the Thames 19 times. The route passes through some of the best countryside and most attractive villages in England. It is open to competent cyclists who are up for a different kind of Team challenge event.
Your entry fee includes: snacks and beverages at the Start and the 5 Stage Points en route plus a hot meal at the Finish. You will also receive a personalised Rider Certificate with a photograph of you at the Finish.
The purpose of this Charity Bike Ride is to raise funds for Bikes4Africa - and specifically, to deliver our first shipment of bicycles to schools in Sierra Leone later this year.
Bikes4Africa helps massively children's access to education in Africa by providing bikes to schools in rural areas. Children have no other way to get to school than to walk, often for up to 3 hours in each direction.
This makes access to the education they deserve and crave extremely difficult.
Having a bike makes that journey so much easier. It enables children to arrive on time, fit and ready for a day of learning. For some children, with impossibly long walks, a bike makes the journey to education possible.
This year's event has a limited number of places with a maximum of 100 Teams.
