TRANSAID has launched its biggest ever cycle challenge, inviting riders from across the industry to saddle up and take on an epic journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats in 2019, with options for teams of riders to share the challenge.

The international development charity is throwing down the gauntlet to mark its 20th anniversary, with celebrations set to begin in September 2018 and continue into 2019. The 12 day adventure will commence on 11 June and marks an important milestone in Transaid’s history as its longest cycle challenge to date. News on the event will feature prominently at the 25th Anniversary Transport News Scottish Rewards Breakfast held in Glasgow on Friday 9 November.

Florence Bearman, head of fundraising at Transaid, says: ‘Our cycle challenges have been taking place since 2006 and continue to grow in popularity each time. The plan was always to do something special to mark our 20th anniversary, and we hope holding the event here in the UK will mean as many supporters as possible can saddle up and join us for what is going to be something really special.’
