Sunday 11 July 2021 - starting 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, with a fully signposted route, refreshment stops and mechanical support, as well as marshals and first aid to keep you safe.
Please note, following the delay in the easing of lockdown restrictions in England and due to the rising case numbers in Brighton and Hove, we have had to make the decision to cancel our family-friendly ride at Preston Park Velodrome, and the entertainment and activities we had planned. The 30 and 60 mile rides are still going ahead as planned. You can read our full statement here.
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.
Your registration fee includes:
- Refreshment stops on route
- Mechanical support at registration and on route
- Marshals on route
- Route files for you to download
- Finisher's medal
- Stunning views of the South Downs
- Fully signposted route

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.
