Planning, Organising and Supporting Corporate and Charity Rides is a Cycle Friendly Speciality.

Charity cycle rides are a Cycle Friendly speciality and one which we have a long history of expertise. We have created original cycle rides for charities such as Norwood, Diabetes UK, Aid International and others in the UK and abroad.

In 2011 we organised 6 charity Challenge Rides and one Challenge Walk

May - London to Paris – for One to One Children’s Fund on our traditional 3 day route from London to Folkestone- then Eurotunnel and coach transfer to Dieppe after which we experienced 2 days glorious riding on quiet French roads down to the Seine and then following the river all the way to the Eiffel Tower. We had a select group of 10 who had a memorable ride.

May- Lithuania Heritage Walk for Jewish Care – a completely new unique heritage walk through Lithuania and Estonia for over 40 walkers. All had a very rewarding time following in the footsteps of their ancestors.

May- Croatia for Young Norwood – a brand new location for Norwood – beautiful cycling on the islands linked with boat trips and a full scale hike up the 5000ft local mountain thrown in. This event was so good that Norwood are planning a similar cycle ride with us in 2014.

June –London to Brussels for Langdon- another fascinating bespoke 3 day Ride via Folkestone, Calais, Dunkirk and Bruge for a group of 25 riders with a wide range of experience. Virtually all achieved this innovative and unusual ride.

June – London to Paris for Headmasters – a Ride to Paris on our traditional route –see above- with the hairdressers, Headmaster for Gt Ormond Street Hospital. An exciting time was had by all.

July – Coast to Coast for Aid International – the classic ride through the Lake District, across the Pennines and into the NE’s heartland ending up at the Millennium Bridge in Newcastle. Being July it rained every day, but the Ride was sensational with the Pennines taking on a mystical appearance and the group spirit won through despite everyone being soaked to the skin. So a memorable Ride was had by all which will be repeated but hopefully in drier conditions.

September – London to Paris – Diabetes UK – our 3rd and most successful Ride to Paris in 2011. The weather, the riders and the organisation were close to perfect. This Ride was repeated in September 2012.
