The White Horse Cycle Challenge, 28 Nov - 13 Dec Add to Calendar
Contact:
John Tranter - 07836 238350
Start Time:
9:30 am
Start Location:
Uffington White Horse Hill
Description:
Sadly this year, the normal Mince Pie Ride arrangements will not be possible, but the urge to challenge ourselves before Christmas and support the Whizz-Kidz charity 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:
www.justgiving.com/fundraising/whitehorsecyclechallenge

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

We ask participants to post their photos on the club Facebook page at:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/cyclingukwantage

or to send by email to: info@cyclingukwantage.org.uk

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

Take care, keep safe and enjoy the challenge!

PS: in the event that lockdown is lifted sufficiently, it is still just possible that there may also be led rides during the period - watch this space!
