Some upcoming events, in aid of our charity

Summer 2020 – The BBQ – Date TBA: 

The BBQ – The Blackdowns, Brendons and Quantocks Sportive. A meaty 2 day sponsored ride of around 150 miles with lots of climbing and amazing scenery, with an overnight stop-over in accommodation on Exmoor plus complementary evening Barbecue. A fun weekend for more experienced riders.

We are aiming to raise the funds we need for sending container number three to Africa. This time we send a longer and higher 40ft container, containing our next 350 bikes, bound for a lot of people in Kenya who will really benefit from having them.

Summer 2020 – The Towpath ride – Date TBA:

A family-friendly, virtually traffic-free 30 mile sponsored ride from Taunton to Bridgewater and back, along the Bridgewater and Taunton Canal. We will follow the canal towpath, now converted to a cycle path. The route is 100% Sustrans, with about 1 mile of quiet road halfway along the towpath. As ever, beautiful scenery, some interesting historical features from Somerset’s past, and a great opportunity to enjoy cycling and help the lives of some very poor people in Africa.
