Sunday 11 July 2021 at Preston Park Velodrome

Take part in an exciting cycling event this July and play your part in combating homelessness across Sussex.

Choose from a 60 mile or 30 mile cycling challenge across the South Downs, or a family-friendly cycle on Preston Park Velodrome.

It’s a fantastic day out for the whole family, with food, entertainment and more.

As the event takes place three weeks after 21 June, when all limits on social contact are due to be lifted in England, we very much hope that we will be able to go ahead on this date. We will be monitoring the situation closely and following Government guidelines and in the event of cancellation due to coronavirus, all registration fees will be refunded.

Join us and raise money to help someone who is homeless get the support they need to find a place they can call home.

What will I get?

Every rider will receive a finisher’s medal on the day to commemorate a fantastic achievement, along with a fundraising pack and support from our dedicated Fundraising Team. On top of this, you’ll be part of something amazing – getting out on your bike to support homeless people across Sussex, helping them to get the support they need to find a place they can call home.

Is there a minimum fundraising target?

Every penny you raise in sponsorship will help make a difference to the lives of vulnerable people across Sussex. We’re encouraging everyone to pledge to raise a minimum of £73 through this event, which could cover the cost of electricity, gas and water bills at First Base for one day, ensuring that the rough sleepers in our city who visit First Base every day can shower, eat hot food, and stay warm after a night of sleeping on the streets.

Do you need volunteers?

We need volunteers to help out with a range of tasks from registering participants on the day to marshalling the cycle track. You can find out more here.
