We’re excited to announce our first Rural Ride for Research and registration is now open. Join us on Wednesday 27th September and conquer the Chilterns!
Some of you will have taken part in our Ride for Research events over recent years. These have been generally city focused and we thought it was time for a more rural ride.
Our Rural Ride for Research will cover approximately 25 miles around the Watlington area of Oxfordshire taking in the beautiful countryside of the Chilterns. We plan to keep the hills to a minimum to ensure the ride is manageable and enjoyable for all, but as it is Chilterns-based there will inevitably be a couple of climbs and some semi-off road sections so we are recommending mountain bikes or hybrids for this event.
As with the previous rides, the RRfR will include visits to local schools to plant trees with the children, promoting the benefits of trees to the next generation. We know from previous events just how rewarding this element of the ride can be.
Riders are asked to raise a minimum of £150 sponsorship for Fund4Trees. Money raised will go to our charitable work – read more about our Legacy.
