Land’s End to John O’Groats
Pedal 1000 miles, end to end, on this classic challenge from Land’s End to John O’Groats, the furthest possible distance in the British Isles. This is a classic challenge that is on many a cyclists ‘to do’ list. Covering more than 12 counties, this is one of the toughest UK fundraising events.
Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, determination, and camaraderie. Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised hundreds and thousands of pounds for worthwhile causes.
London to Paris Bike Ride
Cycling from London to Paris is by far one of the best fundraising events in Europe, and the best of bike rides for charity to hit the sector! Join our London to Paris Bike Ride for a truly inspirational experience. Starting in London, our 300 mile, 4 day route takes us through glorious English countryside, to the ferry from Dover to Calais. Once ‘French side’, we push on cycling along quiet French country lanes, through traditional market towns with views of the rolling green hills of northern France. Get ready for a fantastic charity bike ride – the tarmac in France is superb, and cycling is the nation’s favourite sport so don’t be surprised when the locals make way for you and cheer you on!
