Join in Brighton Housing Trust’s epic mass-participation challenge to cycle ‘around the world’ in just 12 hours! On Sunday 25th June adults and children will take to their bikes at Preston Park Velodrome to cycle laps towards a collective distance of 40,075km.
With cyclists setting their own pace and completing as few or as many laps as they wish, this is an exciting, family-friendly challenge for all abilities. So, whether you’re four years old or 94, everyone is welcome!
There will be a festival-feel to the event, with Morris dancers, a percussion ensemble, Bike-it Ben's smoothie bike, hula hoopers and refreshments available throughout the day.
It is hoped that this unique event will raise £25,000 to enable First Base Day Centre to continue to help people to move away from the streets, and on to independent and healthy lives. Every penny raised will go towards providing food, health services, showers and laundry facilities, and most importantly person-centred advice to help find accommodation and employment. Last year First Base Day Centre helped 306 people to move off the streets.
