Merriott to Lands End Sponsored Cycle Ride


09:30, 16 May 2019

Further information

All over Africa, people often face very long walks to get to school, to their jobs and to health centres. Prodigal Bikes is a Somerset-based charity that sends unwanted mountain bikes, donated in the UK, to remote parts of Africa. Last year we sent 125 refurbished bikes to the Mwingi district of Eastern Kenya, where school children were regularly facing walks of 10 miles each day. In June, we will be sending our second container of 125 bikes to the same area. Through this Sponsored Ride, we aim to raise the £3000 required to pay for shipping these bikes. Starting in the South Somerset village of Merriott, where Prodigal Bikes is based, at the Feed Station cafe, we ride the 200 miles to Lands End over 4 relaxing days on the quiet back roads and cycle paths of the fantastic Sustrans network. Each night, we camp at fully equipped campsites. Your luggage can be carried in our support vehicle if you wish. Lunch, breakfast and en-route refreshments will be provided. Upon reaching Lands End, we return you and your bike to Merriott by car or minibus. Entry £89pp including breakfasts, lunches, snacks, campsites, ferries and return to Merriott by car or minibus after reaching Lands End.
