Unfortunately we cannot get you all home, although we can of course help provide you with all the transport links and hub information you need. We will also transport all your bikes back to a central destination in London for later collection. If that is an option you wish to take please tick the appropriate box in the registration form.
We think this ride will be a great adventure and many new friendships will be made and many renewed. We are not bike snobs here and we want to attract all like minded men and women to join us for a great week and to help us raise a lot of money for our chosen charities, WWTW and The Lions Charitable Trust.We have ongoing conversations and meetings with several more potential supporters and partners and will keep you informed of these developments which could be very exciting and will only add to the ride experience.
* Two weeks after the ride is completed we will rebate qualified riders £1000*
