Cycle Together New Forest, Raising Money for Local Charity!


A great opportunity to enjoy the New Forest and raise money for local charities. Four rides, each route designed by local club riders for local cyclists to enjoy, whether you are a novice or an experienced rider. You will take in the picturesque villages of Lymington, Beaulieu, Lyndhurst and Burley and with four distances to choose from it can be as challenging as you make it. All riders will receive a route card, well-stocked feed stations, expertly-signed routes and support on the road. View our routes online.
All our sportives are run in partnership with British Cycling. Sign up online through the British Cycling sportive listing or contact the team on events@leonardcheshire.org or 020 3242 0239.
With distances of 10, 20, 50 and 100 miles to choose from, there are rides for all the family. The 50- and 100-mile routes will challenge the hardiest of club cyclists, whilst the 10- and 20-mile routes are suitable for all ages and abilities. Every pound raised goes to our official charity partner, Leonard Cheshire Disability. Explore the wonders Britain has to offer this summer by taking on a new cycling challenge. Sign up to Cycle Together and add one of our first-rate sportives to your calendar.
Disability can affect any one of us, our families or loved ones at any time. When it does, Leonard Cheshire Disability is here to help.
All the money raised, including the entry fees, will go to helping a Leonard Cheshire Disability service in the area: James Burns House and The Grange - or one of our other services, if you choose.
About Leonard Chesire Disability
“We believe that disabled people should have the freedom to live their lives the way they choose — with the opportunity and support to live independently, contribute economically and participate fully in society. The support we provide goes far beyond providing social care. We deliver innovative services to help disabled people find and remain in employment, to build confidence through the provision of information, advice and guidance, and to break down barriers through access to computers and adapted IT equipment. We are UK’s leading charity supporting disabled people. Supporting thousands of people in the UK, we offer a wide range of services. Our expertise includes providing accommodation services, personalised care and support services and social, education and leisure services. Sport can be an extremely fulfilling activity that not only improves your fitness levels and make everyday activities easier. It can also help build confidence, leadership, teamwork, improve communication and, just as important as any of these, it can be fun! Our 'Get into Sport' guide covers everything from basic exercises at home and what to eat through to getting started with and competing in specific sports. We work to make sure disabled people are treated fairly and offered the same opportunities as everyone else.”
