Help children with brain injury by taking on the climbs of the Pilgrim’s Way in The Children’s Trust London to Canterbury Cycle Challenge on Sunday 10th September 2017! Described as “one of the best charity rides in the calendar”, the ride gives even the most seasoned of cyclists a thrill with over 1500 metres of climb between its start in London’s Kidbrooke and finish in Canterbury, Kent.

Hot and cold breakfasts will be available to purchase at the start line in Kidbrooke, London, before riders are given a staggered start between 8 and 9am. Choose from a challenging 65 or 80 mile route, both fully signed and marshalled throughout. Riders will enjoy regular and well stocked feed stations.

Cyclists can complete the challenge safe in the knowledge that help is always at hand from support and recovery vehicles, mobile mechanics, and first aid, all of whom will be patrolling the ride throughout the day.

Panoramic views over Canterbury Cathedral await all finishers, as well as a medal of achievement. Cyclists are then invited to enjoy a complimentary sports massage, and can look forward to a BBQ, music, and stands & stalls. Friends and family are encouraged to cheer their cycling stars through the finish line.

A coach will be available to transport cyclists and their bikes from Canterbury to the start line in Kidbrooke, London on the morning of the event. Places on the coach are available to book via our website or over the phone.

One rider commented; “Having done the ride five times before, I think that speaks for itself. I’ll be back next year.”

Cyclists will be provided with route maps, training plans (if required), a Children’s Trust fundraising pack, and GPX and TCX files will also be available on signing up.

Single and discounted team entries available & riders are asked to raise a minimum of just £1 per mile cycled to help children with brain injury.
