The seventh annual LexisNexis Cycle Challenge this year will take the form of a ride from Otley (just north of Leeds) to Runnymede, the riverside site of the sealing of the Magna Carta, covering a total of around 250 miles.
The three-day itinerary, which will see a group of keen LexisNexis cyclists riding between 80 and 100 miles a day along some challenging terrain taking in National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, will be as follows:
- Tuesday 2 July: Starting from near Otley, riding south to Nottingham.
- Wednesday 3 July: Departing Nottingham and riding to Newport Pagnell.
- Thursday 4 July: Riding via the Chilterns and ending at Runnymede.
We will be riding in support of Qhubeka, a not-for-profit organisation based in South Africa which distributes donated bicycles. Providing this simple and efficient means of transport can transform peoples’ lives for the better by enabling them to commute to school or work and generally take up opportunities that would be too difficult or expensive for them to access by public transport.
Please help Qhubeka to continue their great work by sponsoring us on our ride. We are truly grateful for your contributions.
