Entry open for 2019

We’d love see you again at the event. Please secure your place to ride with us again today.

We HAVE TO LIMIT online places to 650 again this year, the event sold out again last year reaching peak capacity so we have to be very strict on places. Over 100 people have entered already this year so it will sell out again.

EXCITING NEWS!

Due to popular demand if we can we are hoping to offer a shorter ride, between 5-10 miles for little ones and families, we are just sorting out a potential route and details at the minute but will let you know as soon as we can.

SO – PLEASE ENTER HERE NOW TO SECURE YOUR RIDE:

Your fine legs are saving lives. No bull. Here’s where the cash is going to prove it.

These are the statistics from the CALM helpline in 2018.

  • The helpline took 88,000 calls and web chats in 2018 which led to…
  • 675 Suicides prevented for the year. Tracked by metrics from the calls.
  • The total cost to run the helpline per year is £736, 250.
  • £8.37 pays for one call or web chat that could save a life. Every penny raised counts!

All profits from this event go directly to CALM and the call centre costs.

Just think how much of an impact we could have on CALM’s work together! Fundraise as a team, or go it alone.

ROUTES & RIDES

As before you can choose from 25, 50 & 100 mile distances. The three routes are all on quiet roads, allowing you to soak in the spectacular scenery, are impeccably signed, have well stocked feed stations and have full mechanical / safety support. 

The events main challenge, the 100mile ‘Full Monty’ tips the altimeter at nearly 6000 ft of climbing, tackling iconic climbs such as the punchy Combe Gibbet. It really is a belter of a route. 

SO A HUMONGOUS THANK YOU FROM CALM, the PRATT FAMILY and us as organisers, you’re helping CALM save lives with this money going directly to the front line in tackling male suicide and mental health. 

See you in the saddle on SAT 14th SEPTEMBER!
