This bike ride challenge remembers the incredible sacrifices made by all those who fought in the First World War.

The four-day cycling journey will start from London and pass through the historic Somme region of France before heading towards Passchendaele and finishing in Ypres.

Visiting battlefields, cemeteries and memorials along the route will bring a strong feeling of Remembrance to this scenic bike ride.

Entry fee

The registration fee is £650 (£150 deposit + £500 balance due on 1 April 2018).

We ask our participants to have a fundraising target of £900, so we can continue our work to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community.
