We have opened registration for our unique cycling fundraiser taking place on July 1st 2018. This year participants can fundraise for any charity of their choice, and I would encourage you to get a team together for your organisation.
BHT has teamed up with The Living Coast to create the Greater Brighton Cycle Challenge comprising three exciting cycling experiences allowing for all levels of fitness.
BHT’s Around the World Cycle Challenge is a family friendly event taking place the Preston Park Velodrome. This challenge starts at 7am and runs throughout the day, with cyclists aiming to reach the combined target of 69,215 laps (equating to cycling 40,075km around the world) in just 12 hours! Laps can be completed in one session or over a number of sessions throughout the day and there are designated slots for families and club cyclists. Refreshments will be available throughout the day and there is a programme of entertainment planned to add to the fun.
The Living Coast rides are more of a physical challenge, with rides of 30 and 58 miles through the world-class environment on our doorstep, recognised by UNESCO as a World Biosphere Region.
The route of the Classic ride (58 miles) is very similar to last year Brighton Mayor’s ride. It is slightly longer due to starting and finishing in the velodrome at Preston Park and a few other minor tweaks, and new for 2018 is the 30 mile ride called the Devil’s Dyke Loop, for those less confident of managing 58 miles. This heads over to Hangleton to take the Dyke Trail up to Devil’s Dyke before going down to Poynings and Fulking and joining the longer (Classic ride) near Woodmancote.
This exciting cycling event will raise much needed funds for BHT’s First Base Day Centre and for other charities, so please sign up, tell your friends and family and share the links below on social media.
