The White Horse Cycle Challenge, 28 Nov - 13 Dec
John Tranter
Start Time:
Start Location:
Uffington White Horse Hill
For nearly 20 years, Cycling UK Wantage has organised a festive fund-raising event supporting Whizz-Kidz, the children’s mobility charity: the Annual Mince Pie Ride to White Horse Hill. Sadly this year, the normal arrangements will not be possible, but the urge to challenge ourselves before Christmas and support Whizz-Kidz remains. So, we are pleased to present the White Horse Cycle Challenge:

We challenge individual riders to climb the great Hill at a time of their choosing between 28 November and 13 December (on their own, in a household group or with one friend or small group in line with social distancing guidelines in place at the time), take a selfie or photo at the top for proof, get extra respect for taking their own mince pie up there and raise money for Whizz-Kids. Our target is to see 100 riders complete the challenge.

We have set up a donations page, here:

and would welcome donations to support the efforts of all riders, whether from riders themselves, their family or friends.

The event is open to all to who enjoy a cycling challenge. We have contacted all the local cycling clubs. To help non regular or non-local cyclists give it a go, we are working on a route sheet from Grove and Wantage to White Horse Hill and back. Watch this space!

We ask participants to post their photos on the club Facebook page at:

or to send by email to:

This address can also be used for enquires about the event.

Take care, keep safe and enjoy the challenge!
