Prodigal Bikes Events
Some upcoming events, in aid of our charity
16th to 19th May 2019:
Join us for our annual sponsored ride from the Feed Station cafe in Merriott, South Somerset, down to Lands End. We have set a target of raising £3000 to pay for our next container shipment of 125 bikes to Kenya in June. Over 4 days, we will ride entirely on the quiet lanes and cycle paths of the Sustrans network, camping out each night at fully equipped campsites. This ride will be a real adventure, you will make lots of new friends and will see the beautiful West Country in the best way possible – from a bike. Campsite reservations, breakfast, snack and lunches, and a Minibus transfer back up from Land End will be provided. If you need a suitable touring or mountain bike with panniers, we can lend you one from our ever-growing collection of bikes bound for Africa.
The route is;
Day 1: Merriott – Chard – Axminster – Seaton – Exmouth
Day 2: Exmouth – Exeter – Okehampton – Lydford
Day 3: Lydford – Plymouth – Looe – Fowey – St Austell
Day 4: St Austell – Roseland Penisula – Redruth – Penzance – Lands End
To enter, please email email@example.com and we will send you out a welcome pack.
(April 18th update: Entry via British Cycling is not going to be possible in the time remaining)
