Did you win the Cycling UK Grand Draw 2017?
Did you win the Cycling UK Grand Draw 2017?
Thank you everyone!
Cycling UK Chair Dan Howard explains how members have helped to raise funds for the charity:
Much like Cycling UK’s ambitions the 2017 Cycling UK Grand Draw is the biggest ever with £8,500 of prizes including a wonderful tandem, exotic cycling holidays, camera, tyres, cycle clothing and a cash prize of £3,000. The draw is both a chance for members to win great prizes but crucially it also raises tens of thousands of pounds to help us get the UK cycling.
In just the last six months your support has enabled us to train more ride leaders to lead thousands of group rides; we’ve got half a million-people cycling - through our Bike Week, by renovating and providing bikes for communities through the Big Bike revival. We've encouraged people to take their cycling even further in our new Challenge ride series and celebrated and inspired some of those underrepresented in cycling through the Women’s festival of Cycling.
We’re making cycling even safer by providing #TooCloseForComfort close overtaking education mats to every police force in the UK and we’re making giant strides in our Rides of Way off-road campaigning to open huge swaths of the countryside for cyclists.
Cycling UK are the cyclists’ champion and by taking part in Grand Draw you are too. So thank you!
Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you also to the following companies who supported Cycling UK by providing the prizes.

Previous winners of the grand draw
Paul and Pauline Edwards told us of their joy on winning the the Grand Draw last year. They said: "We have just returned home from enjoying our prize from last years Grand Draw. One week at the 'Cycle Sanctuary' on the South Downs courtesy of Miles Hutchings. We had a fantastic week in the most comfortable cottage full of cycling memorabilia. There were also two log burning stoves to complete the home comforts. The area provided excellent cycling and a wealth of interesting places to visit. All in all a most enjoyable way to celebrate my 70th birthday. On our return home we found the latest issue of 'CYCLE' in the mail along with this years Grand Draw tickets. Needless to say we will be buying more tickets this year."
