 Virtual Cycle Ride 2018

Cycling PosterOn World Sight Day 2016 we launched our first Virtual Cycle Ride! We are inviting people to cycle 24 miles which can be completed on a route of their choosing, over as many days as they want. You can take part as an individual or as a team, on a static bike at the gym, or outside in the park.

Registration is just £15 per person which includes personalised sponsor forms, a finishers medal and certificate. By registering for this event; you are helping us provide befrienders to isolated, visually impaired individuals in the local community.

Take part as a team of four and benefit from a reduced registration fee of £50; this could help fund a group training session to teach sight impaired people to use the internet and access emails.

There is no minimum sponsorship required but any additional funds raised will of course be greatly appreciated!

Please register here if you're interested in taking part.

As always, the walk will take you along the pretty highways and byways of the stunning Kent countryside, passing by the beautiful Leeds Castle on the 10 mile route.
