London to Manchester 2019
After a win from the Northern participants in the 2018 Rapha Manchester to London event – the traditional Manchester to London route has been reversed and refreshed ready for 2019. Join us and Rapha and ride today , a refreshed route with a brand new start and finish point!
2019 will be our seventh year in partnership with Rapha and we are so excited to take on reversed route for the first time!
Starting between midnight - 0100 on the 31 August at home to European rugby champions – Saracens, riders will be riding into the light to complete 221 miles and finishing at the stunning Adlington Hall on the outskirts of Manchester, on a late summers afternoon on the 1 September. You will also be treated to an awesome array of seriously mouth-watering refreshments at the four feed stations on your journey. The food is fresh and nutritious to see you through to the next stage, and ultimately to the finish line. This event is very much about the journey rather than the destination.
Anyone with any experience of autism knows how many challenges there are to face. There are highs and lows, but with the right support and knowledge it can be a fulfilling and inspiring experience – which is exactly what you’ll find on this amazing bike ride. We will be there to support you from the moment you sign up, giving fundraising and training advice, to the minute you set off.
Finally, to add to the excitement we have added an option for relay teams to participate working together as a team of four and an allocated driver, to complete the distance as one throughout the night.
