'We ride, so they can ride' Help Cycling UK provide the joy of cycling to people with disabilities

We ride, so they can ride. We need your help for Team ‘We Ride So They Can Ride’ to reach their target and provide vital support to cyclists with disabilities across the country. Please donate today by TEXTING TCUK17 £5 to 70070.

Olivia was just two years old when she contracted meningitis and had her lower legs and left arm amputated. She struggled to keep up with her friends, particularly with cycling as she wanted to enjoy her bike rides with them as much as she had done before.

With the help of the inclusive cycling centre Watchtree Wheelers, she’s now riding her own bike. Olivia’s story ‘cycling without limbs’ is just one of the many successes that Cycling UK has been supporting through its national network of Inclusive Cycle Centres.

On 30 July 2017, a team of 21 Cycling UK staff and members will come together to take on the RideLondon 100 challenge to ensure that people like Olivia can enjoy the fun and freedom of cycling without facing barriers like lack of funding or support.

We need your help for Team ‘We Ride So They Can Ride’ to reach their target and provide vital support to cyclists with disabilities across the country. Please donate online today via JustGiving: or alternatively TEXT TCUK17 £5 to 70070. If you want to give more, you could keep texting the same or just increase the sum you text after the code TCUK17.

The team - named ‘We Ride So They Can Ride’ - aims to raise  £10,000 for Cycling UK’s Inclusive Cycle Network, helping fund groups like Watchtree Wheelers continue their outstanding work in their local communities.

Team ‘We Ride So They Can Ride’ is made up of cyclists of all ages, backgrounds and levels of experience – what brings them all together is a passion to get on their bikes and raise vital funds. Anyone else who is lucky enough to have a place in RideLondon 100 would be welcome to join Cycling UK and be part of the team.

Collectively, the dedicated riders will be travelling over 2100 miles, which is the same as cycling to The Netherlands and back three times! Their aim is to complete the route with a joint time of 135 hours.

If you’d like to ride with Cycling UK’s team or find out where you can support riders on the day, please contact Mark Slater at mark.slater@cyclinguk.org
