Riding4Dreams is a fund raising group that has been formed by a group of (mostly) overweight, unfit, pub going regulars who’s cycling experience extends as far as riding to the pub on sunny days.
Initially the ‘bright idea’ of one of the founding 4 members, the idea of cycling to Paris over 3 days to raise money for the Dreamflight charity has caught the imagination of many friends who have decided to join the challenge, others have been persuaded by the cause and the odd person may claim to have been mildly press-ganged into joining in.
Get fit and help out!
The idea of bringing charity work closer to the centre of our lives and getting fitter and healthier to boot has attracted the support of a far wider group of people than was expected, and has resulted in agreement to add a slightly less challenging ‘fun’ ride so that a great deal more people can join in the fun and fund raising.
Most weekend mornings departing Shepperton and increasing in distance from 32 miles upwards as the year progresses. Open to those wishing to join us getting endurance ready.
Our £10,000 target
We are delighted to announce that over £25,000 has been raised so far for the 2019 challenge. To help us reach over £30,000 in support of Dreamflight for this year, please go to our JustGiving page, this is a community fundraising page for the whole group not an individual fund-raising effort.
Additional sponsors are welcome and invited to contact us via our Facebook page.
Should anyone else want to join either the 3 day ride to Paris (no minimum fund raising requirement just the need to pay your own costs), the fun rides (date and location to be finalised) or just the training please post your details on our Facebook page and we will be in contact.
