Ride25 began in June 2012 with a group of friends deciding that it would be fun to see the world on a bike and raise money for charity on the way. The founders always wanted to cycle from the UK to Sydney, Australia but with jobs and families to consider getting on a bike and going was unrealistic!The solution was to break up the journey into 25 legs and complete one leg each year over 25 years. Every year a new leg is completed over a (very) long weekend. The first 8 legs have involved the group cycling from Parmoor (West of London) to Candir (East of Ankara) in Turkey via Paris, Geneva, Milan, Rome, Bari, Thessaloniki and Istanbul.2022 is Leg 9 which has been postponed 5 times since 2020. We are cycling a total of 458 miles over 5 days and climbing over 28,000 ft. The area is mountainous and will be pretty hot! The trip raises vital money for 1moreChild to help keep 200+ children in Uganda off the streets, housed and able to go to school.£225,000 already raised offline through corporate sponsorship & individual donations.Learn more about 1moreChild here.
All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.
