Nice to Barcelona
We are cycling from Nice to Barcelona to raise money for charity
The Ashley Scrivens Foundation is a grant making trust set up to support and promote the development of youth sport within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, with a forward giving philosophy to extend the impact of the grants that we make.
Established in 2014 in the memory of Ashley Scrivens, we strive to carry forward Ashley’s legacy of developing youth sport, and his immense generosity in terms of giving back to those that helped him or are less fortunate than himself.
TASF differs slightly from the usual trust, by the way that we ask the recipients of our grants to give something forward to their community in return. This can be anything that the recipient chooses, but has to fulfil our criteria of helping their community, and is proportional to the size of grant given. We believe that not only does this make the money we give work harder and draw communities together, but also carries forward Ashley’s legacy of forward giving
We run several fundraising events over the course of the year, as well as people fundraising for us, and then meet as a board of trustees every quarter to vote upon which projects we can support. We invite organisations, such as clubs, societies, schools, youth clubs etc to apply to us for a grant to either wholly or partly fund a project that fits with our criteria.
As a part of the application, we’ll ask the applicant to outline how they are planning to give forward, outside of their normal activities. If the applicant is unsure, we are happy to give ideas and/or align them with local charities or social enterprises that could use their help. Preference will be given, however, to organisations who have given thought as to how they’d like to give forward.
Our ultimate aim is to make sport accessible to all under-18’s within Cirencester, The Forest of Dean and the surrounding area, agnostic to ability, type of sport or demographic. We do this by making grants for specific projects and initiatives that are aimed at increasing the participation level in, and/or improve the quality of sport within our geographical reach.

We are cycling from Nice to Barcelona to raise money for charity
Hi guys, over 5 days I will be riding from Nicé to Barcelona to raise money for two fantastic charities, The Ashley Scrivens Foundation and The Royal British Legion. It’s a long way and I’ve got a big target to hit so every donation, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated! Drop me a message if you’d like to know more about either charity or for some info on how you could help me raise some funds :)
I will be riding from Nice to Barcelona over hills and coastlines to raise money for a fantastic charity. I will no doubt not be able to walk for a week after but its worth it and so are your donations.
Part 3. Nice to Barcelona. 6 days, 600 miles, couple of hills.
Up, up, and up still more, my Condor and I will be traversing the Alpine and Pyrenees roads between Nice and Barcelona with the BBBikers this September.
But Why?1) For my healthI have this year transitioned from being a hospital doctor, to working in General Practice. I now for the first time work a sedentary, office-based job, where I sit at a desk for 10 hours a day Hours are long, days are busy, and I got lazy. In 6months I have put on 6kg, an issue I need to address urgently.I was therefore looking for a goal, something to get me back in the saddle as it were, when my friend Lucy volunteered me for this ride.
2) For my chosen charitiesTASF- a Wiltshire based charity creating opportunities for youth participation in sport (75% proceeds). See bottom of pageDMI- international charity delivering heath promotion and education materials though radio and television broadcasting to poorly resourced communities in the developing world (25% proceeds). The costs of this tour are fully covered by corporate sponsorship, therefore all money raised goes directly to these charities
3) For FunFor the BBBikers, this will be their third tour, having already completed leg 1: Cirencester to Paris, and leg 2: Paris to Nice. I am looking forward to being a new member of the BBB team for this next stage.The challenge of this ride, will be outmatched only by the beauty of the countryside and mountain views, a true experience of a lifetime. In training I'm enjoying seeing much of unexplored Wiltshire countryside, and re-learning the delights of padded Lycra and Chamois cream.
Following the Paris to Nice ride in 2017, I will be cycling from Nice to Barcelona over a week in September 2019, on the 3rd leg of the Baby Bliss Bikers rides. The ride starts on the promenade at Nice (where the last one finished) and travels 590 miles over the Pyrenees to Barcelona. The money I raise will be split between the Ashley Scrivens Foundation and Sibes and Sled Dogs Husky Resuce.
We are riding from Nice to Barcelona, over 100 miles per day and through moutains! Thanks in advance for your support.
Cycling from Nice to Barcelona to raise money for the Ashley Scrivens Foundation and LARF.
Last year I embarked on a charity cycling event, after not riding a bike for over ten years little did I know that I would become addicted!
I was given my trusty bike Claude as a Christmas present from my husband and we have traveled over 4000 miles together so far.
last year I set myself a target of 3000 miles this year my target is 5200. I am going to complete these miles and hopefully raise some money for two great charity’s along the way.
This year I am tackling some major events including a 2 day 300km ultra (London Revolution), London to Paris unsupported, Ride London 100 and then the big end of year finale - BBB3 Nice to Barcelona - 590 miles in 6 days and a couple of mountains to climb!
All of this is for 2 great charity’s, number 1 being The Ashley Scrivens foundation who have organised BBB3 and 25% of everything I raise will go to my chosen charity Motor Neurone Disease Association.
All events and activity’s have been solely paid for by myself and every penny donated goes direct to the charity’s.
Please dig deep and help these two fantastic charity’s.

Having been fortunate to be part of the BBB2 fundraising drive cycling from Paris to Nice. Being part of the story again was too good an opportunity to pass up.
This is the third BBB ride for me so I know it will be hard, and it will hurt ... especially riding my 30 year old road bike that is held together with rust and duct tape. It's not the most mountain worthy bike, but it got me from Cirencester to Paris, and Paris to Nice, so it's only right I continue the journey from Nice to Barcelona on Rusty Bob. It makes it even more of a challenge ;) That and the fact that I am no cyclist! In between these mammoth charity rides, I do absolutely no cycling so there's a lot of work to get mountain fit! But I know that it'll be worth the pain to be part of a team of amazing people raising money for such great causes.
As well as raising funds for The Ashley Scrivens Foundation, I am also raising funds for The Big Yellow Bus Project - a converted double decker bus in Cirencester to provide shelter for homeless people and support them in getting back into work. https://www.facebook.com/groups/325059717924517/about/
Having cycled from Cirencester to Paris in 2013, and then Paris to Nice to 2016, we are continuing our journey and turning west at Nice and heading over the Alps, then Pyrenees, to finish in Barcelona 6 days later. It is a 550 mile trip, with a few “hills”
The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
