for Brighton Housing Trust and the Living Coast
Sunday 1 July 2018
The ‘Greater Brighton Cycle Challenge’ on Sunday the 1st July is a celebration of cycling and the world-class environment that we live in. Local homeless charity, Brighton Housing Trust (BHT), has teamed up with The Living Coast to create a family event that all ages and abilities can get involved in.
Cyclists can enjoy the beauty of The Living Coast, a designated UNESCO World Biosphere Region, by cycling a 30 or 58 mile route out to the South Downs, starting and finishing at the Velodrome. Or you can take the ‘Around the World Challenge’ at the velodrome anytime between 7am and 7pm. The aim is to collectively ride the distance around the world, 40,075km, throughout the day. Family-fun entertainment including a “Smoothie bike” and other refreshments will be available.
Cyclists can raise money for BHT’s work to combat homelessness, including the First Base day centre, or for other good causes of their choosing.
Andy Winter, Chief Executive of BHT said: “We are extremely excited about running an even bigger and more exciting event this year. We didn’t quite clock up the mileage around the world last year, but we were overwhelmed by the support of over 350 people on the day who raised over £15,000 to help people to move away from the streets and live independent and healthy lives.” For more information and to register, please visit: www.bht.org.uk or www.facebook.com/events/813131802204809/
