On your bike

We’re seeing fundraising from the saddle becoming more and more popular on Virgin Money Giving, and there are plenty of fantastic events up and down the country this year you could take part in.

Freddie Flintoff and Lawrence Dallaglio have already chalked off close to 2,000 km as part of their Cycle Slam event – a fantastic achievement (and they’re fundraising on Virgin Money Giving too).

If cycling is your thing then here are some events that you might like to take part in:

Next month the North East will host its annual celebration of cycling – the Virgin Money Cyclone and there are plenty of places still available.

Starting on 28 June, the four day festival will begin with a Thursday evening ride aimed at less experienced riders and young families, while the Saturday events include a choice of 33, 63 or 104 mile routes for more experienced cyclists. Everyone taking part in these rides can raise money for charity.

Nightrider, a 100km bike ride through London overnight is also taking place on 11 June. You can raise money for any charity and you can get your fundraising started here.

And, there is the Deloitte Ride Across Britain starting on 8 Sept which sees over 700 riders take on the legendary ‘end to end’ each year, from Land’s End to John O’Groats. If you’re taking part in this event you can start your fundraising now.

If you’re taking part in any of these events don’t forget to set up your fundraising page – and let us know about your training and fundraising – we’d be delighted to feature you as one of our fundraising stories.
