Cycle the width of Britain in two-days in this iconic event. Along the way you’ll take in some of the most stunning scenery the country has to offer, including the Lake District, the North Pennines and sections of Hadrian’s Wall.
All of your efforts will help contribute to human rights change as you raise money for Amnesty International UK. There’s a £95 registration fee and a modest fundraising target of £785.
This is a challenging event, but a must do for cycling enthusiasts. Charity Challenge, the event organisers, offer excellent support along the way and accommodation and meals are included in the cost so you can focus on the cycling and taking in your surroundings.
What we'll give you
We'll give you an Amnesty t-shirt and fundraising pack, any fundraising materials you need and all the help and support you’ll need to meet your target before you go.
Support on the ride
You'll ride in a group and be guided by trained event leaders, who'll be able to give you mechanical and medical support should you need it.
Support vehicles will carry your luggage, so you only need to stick the essentials in a saddle bag, and you'll be reunited with the rest of your luggage each evening.
Your transport, accommodation and meals are provided so all you have to focus on is keeping pedalling and enjoying the ride!
Is it for me?
If you’re a regular cyclist, you should be able to take part in this event
Solo riders welcome
You'll join a group of cyclists raising money for various charities. This challenge is a great way to meet like-minded people and make lasting friendships while you pedal away the miles, so don't worry about joining on your own - there will be other solo riders too and we'll gladly welcome you to the team!
Or get friends involved!
This could be the opportunity to get a bunch of mates or colleagues together and collectively do your bit for human rights. Training rides with a group of people can make getting ready for the challenge much easier - especially when you're reluctant to get out and get a few miles in your legs!
