From London to Oxford, ride a from town to country and help the development of Maggie's Centre

One of the great things we can do with our passion for cycling is raise money for charity. We can take our love for the bike, ride a particular event and help a worthy cause in the process. The newest of these events is the London to Oxford Maggie's charity ride.

This new event will partner up teams of five riders to take on the 120km route between the two cities while raising money for Maggie's, the charity that helps those affected by cancer. 

Rolling out of Maggie's latest care centre at Barts Hospital in London the scenic route will take you through London before traversing through the countryside of the Home Counties leading to a finish at the Maggie's Centre in Oxford.

Thanks to bike travel company Velusso, each group will have a ride leader and be supplied with training and nutrition tips beforehand.

Prizes will be handed out to teams that raise the most money and finish fastest.

As you finish the day of riding, you will be greeted with a lovely two course meal to finish, with free transport back to London for you and your bike also provided.

Each of the five riders will need to pay a £65 entry fee with a sponsorship target of £500 each. If you cannot find four fellow riders you will be partnered with others on the day.

Entry forms can be found here at the Maggie's Centre website.

With 27 centres across the UK, Maggie's offers a free sanctuary of practical, emotional and social support for all those dealing with cancer and their family and friends.

All money raised will go towards continuing the hard work provided by this free service and developing new centres across the country.
