Poppy Ride for The Royal British Legion is a brand new multi-distance cycle event. As you pedal through the picturesque Staffordshire countryside you will have a chance to push your ride capabilities alongside veterans from The Battle Back Centre.
The 35km, 60km and 115km routes will start and finish at The Battle Back Centre, a facility that supports wounded, injured and sick Service personnel. The Centre exists to help people achieve their best possible recovery and either return to Service duty or to make a smooth transition to civilian life.
Entry costs just £28 for the first 100 registrations, before increasing to £33, but if your fundraising hits £200 then you'll receive a Legion jersey.
There are three different Poppy Ride distances on offer:
There will be multiple feed stations on both routes and you'll be supported throughout the event.
We'll start in waves, where riders will be released at 5-10 minute intervals. There will be options to join ability groups or a development group for those wanting to learn more about riding in a group. Each group will be led by experienced Legion ride captains so you can focus on the challenge ahead.
