    7:00 am - 6:00 pm

We are delighted to be working with Crisis on their London to Edinburgh Cycle Challenge.

This is a seven day, 450-mile cycle ride from London to Edinburgh. Taking place on quiet, scenic roads, with some serious climbs to tackle – this is a tough but fantastic challenge for experienced cyclists and new riders alike.

Every aspect of the ride will be planned with precision, meaning riders can fully focus on the cycling, taking in the beautiful views, enjoying the camaraderie with other riders, and knowing they are raising vital funds to help end homelessness.

Places for this exclusive ride are limited to just 20 to ensure you have the ultimate ride experience.
