Prodigal Bikes Events
Some upcoming events, in aid of our charity
16th to 19th May 2019:
Join us for our annual sponsored ride from our base 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 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.
Provisional 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
More details to follow shortly.
We load container No.2 at our Merriott workshop with 125 bikes bound for the Akamba region of north eastern Kenya.
Africa Night 3.
Our African-themed evening in Merriott with African style music, food and drink. A fun filled evening to raise money to ship container No.3 to Africa in December.
