Transaid Pedals ‘Astride The Pennines’

TRANSAID has launched its 2021 UK Cycle Challenge, laying down the gauntlet to transport and logistics industry professionals to dust off their Lycra, polish their saddles and gear up for the epic, north of England, coast-to-coast fundraising event, which takes place from 24-26 September.
The 170 mile ‘Way of the Roses’ challenge, the organisation’s sixth UK cycling event, will see up to 40 participants take part in the Morecambe to Bridlington adventure, to raise money in support of Transaid’s work in sub-Saharan Africa improving road safety and access to healthcare for communities across the region.
Announcing the ride, Florence Bearman, Transaid’s head of fundraising, said: “We were disappointed not to go ahead with our events last year, and so we are absolutely thrilled to launch this new fundraiser.”
Entries are encouraged from individuals and teams although space is limited and places are expected to fill up fast, so Transaid urges participants to sign up quickly to secure a place.
There is a registration fee of £99, with participants asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £1,000.
