Poppy Ride for The Royal British Legion returns for its second year.

The three distance options all wind through the picturesque Staffordshire countryside and provide an opportunity for first time riders and sportive enthusiasts to ride alongside veteran. It really is a ride not to be missed.

All three distance options will start and finish at the Battle Back Centre, a specialist recovery facility that supports wounded, injured and sick service personnel to either return to active duty or make a smooth transition to life outside of the Armed Forces.

Event information

Event entry costs £32 with a suggested fundraising target of £150, but if your fundraising hits £200 you will receive a Legion Summer Cycling Pack which will contain your Poppy branded cycling essentials.

We're offering a Super Early Bird discounted registration fee of £28 until 28 February. Don't miss out - sign up today!

 

This year there'll be three different distance route options to cater for everyone from beginners to experienced cyclists;

  • 136km: This is the longest Poppy Ride route which is comparable to the longest day on our iconic Pedal to Paris event, this route also passes the very poignant National Memorial Arboretum
  • 70km: An ideal route for both experienced cyclists and those wanting to push themselves on a modestly flat route which takes in parts of the beautiful Cannock Chase.
  • 35km: An almost completely flat route on quiet Staffordshire country lanes, an ideal introduction to anyone new to organised road cycling events.

 

Poppy Ride entry includes:

  • Unique finisher’s medal
  • Timed event, online results available
  • On-site Parking
  • Your choice of three professionally designed and sign posted routes
  • Medical and Mechanical support throughout the ride and a sweeper vehicle
  • Fully stocked Feed Stations
  • Event Village with on-site catering

There will also be an option to join ability groups or a development group for those wanting to gain more experience in group riding. Each group will be led by our experienced Legion Ride Captains so you can focus on the challenge ahead.
