FOUR FANTASTIC CYCLE EVENTS FOR 2015!
Forget those winter blues........what a fantastic opportunity to set yourself a fitness target for 2015 and why not make 2015 a year to remember by taking part in one of our fantastic Charity Bike Rides.
We have a ride for all abilities and all pockets and every ride is fully supported by our experienced team of volunteers. You will be fed, watered and each ride is signposted to make sure you reach your destination safe and sound. All our routes are carefully selected to ensure they are as traffic free as possible and you have a choice of an off road or road rides. What's more, EVERY PENNY you raise goes to charities in Sussex, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors Legal & General.
In 2015 we are introducing a fantastic new 65 mile City to Coast cycle Challenge from Richmond Park to Shoreham-by-Sea - OFF ROAD. Cycle the scenic Thames Path National Trail and pass the doorstep of Hampton Court Palace. Meander along the Thames to Teddington Lock to pick up the Wey Canal path and finally onto Shoreham-by-Sea via the Downs Link. THIS IS A LIMITED NUMBERS EVENT. So book early!
Or if you fancy something not quite as challenging, why not come along on our two other events that we are running the same day. The Guldford to Shoreham Charity ride is 40 miles and travels the entire length of the Downs Link, passing through Cranleigh and Southwater en route to Shoreham. If you only have a morning, then why not come on our Southwater to Shoreham ride, which is only 20 miles and suitable for all the family!
If European culture is your bag, join us on our second Dunkirk to Brussels Challenge and experience cycing in one of the most cycle friendly countries in Europe, visiting visiting Ypres, Bruges, Ghent and Brussels.
All of our rides carry a complete package to keep you on track and most include transportation options to get you on your way and bring you home safely. All our rides have full mechanical support courtesy of Giant Bikes (Shoreham) and Mr Cycles Seaford.
Remember......EVERY PENNY you raise through sponsorship goes directly to those in need in Sussex, because an Argus Appeal Cycle Challenge is a 100% charity bike ride - unlike some of the others.
