Virgin Money Giving and Cyclone

Looking for a new challenge? Well, between 28 June and 1 July, Virgin Money will be sponsoring the Cyclone – the UK’s biggest cycling festival, and we’re pleased to announce that Virgin Money Giving will also be the Official Fundraising Website for cyclists too.

Cycling is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and Virgin Money is proud to be bringing its sponsorship to the Cyclone – the UK’s biggest cycling festival.

Since its launch in 2007 over £500,000 has been raised for good causes and with your help we can help even more go to good causes.

The festival, held in the North East celebrates cycling with routes and distances for all levels of cyclists from beginners to professional.

The Thursday will include a new evening ride for less experienced cyclists and young families. Called the Tyne Six Bridges Leisure Ride, it will feature two gentle routes of 9½ and 14½ miles along the banks of the River Tyne.

The celebration of cycling will also include the Leazes Criteriums on Friday evening, the hugely popular Virgin Money Cyclone Challenge rides on the Saturday – with a choice of 33, 63 and 104 mile routes – and the Beaumont Trophy Premier Calendar race featuring professional riders on the Sunday.

The Curlew Cup which will be the first ever all ladies race held in the North East, and will form part the women’s National Series has also been added to the schedule for the Sunday.
