Rider Testimonials

We love hearing from our riders about their experiences at our events.

Fantastic event. Super slick organisation from pre-registration, arrival and beautiful route and post-ride refreshments. Will definitely be returning next year!

Ed, 2023 finisher

This is by far one of the most friendly sportives I've ever done. Very well organised and very cheerful marshals. Fantastic breakfast and a great pizza to finish off what was a brilliant day. Already looking forward to next year's event!

Never give up on children like Paddy

Paddy's Story

It’s truly heartbreaking to know that thousands of children across the UK are living with rare diseases that have no cures. And, that 30% of these children will tragically lose their lives before their fifth birthday.

Paddy was born with a very rare and severe seizure condition, called KCNT1-related epilepsy. The condition has no cure and often leaves children severely disabled. Many never walk or talk and sadly most will have their lives cut painfully short. 

We will NEVER stop fighting for children with rare diseases. That’s why we need your support. To help raise much-needed awareness of rare diseases and to raise urgent funds to support new research that offers all important hope for children like Paddy and their families.
