Hears and minds -  CyclingBuddy challenge

 

23rd - 28th May 2013

READY FOR A CHALLENGE?

Join Paul Scholes & Keith Duffy on a Cycle trip of a lifetime.

CyclingBuddy.com are delighted to announce our new charity partner Hearts And Minds Challenge, a charity who’s aim is to raise the quality of life of individuals and their families affected by autism by ensuring the highest standards in education, care and support leading to employment and equality of living opportunities.

Why don’t you join us on our first sponsored cycling challenge in Spain during the bank holiday weekend in May 2013 when we will be cycling 300 miles starting in Malaga and finishing 4 days later in Gibraltar.

“The CyclingBuddy Charity Challenge” is a cycling challenge that consists of cycling 300 miles in 4 days. You will start your challenge in Malaga and cycle through Ronda, Seville and Jerez before finishing in Gibraltar where you will enjoy an end of event celebration party.

Each day you will be in the saddle for around 6-8 hours, so padded shorts are a must! We guarantee the routes will keep you wanting more with challenging short sharp inclines, long energy sapping inclines, mixed with rewarding declines and plenty of opportunities to chill out and enjoy a chat. There will be scheduled breaks during each day and each evening we will be sampling the very best of Spanish culture.

By taking part in this challenging experience you will not only get the chance to cycle along some of the most scenic routes in Europe while making some great new friendships, you will also get to meet some of our celebrity supporters who will be joining us on the ride.

All the funds raised during this event will be used to make a difference to the lives of children with autism in the UK & Ireland.

Simply register for £100 and agree to raise a further minimum of £1600 and you will be part of “The CyclingBuddy Charity Challenge”

All members of cyclingbuddy.com get a 10% discount
