Saints Foundation’s Big Bike Challenge 2017!

Spaces for our Big Bike Challenge are limited, so all sign ups will now be reviewed on a first come first served basis.

The two-day event will see riders covering 180 miles from Bet365 Stadium to St Mary’s, arriving in time to see Saints take on Stoke City in the last home fixture of the season.

Riders will travel up to Stoke on the evening of Friday 19th May, and will kick start the first 90 mile leg of the ride on the Saturday, followed by the remaining 90 miles to St Mary’s on Sunday 21st May 2017.

‘Our 2016 Big Bike Challenge was a great success, raising over £25,000 for Saints Foundation. Our next ride will be the longest distance that we’ve attempted in the seven years that the Big Bike Challenge has been running, so we really hope to get lots of riders of all abilities taking part.’ Amy Bennett, Fundraising Officer.

Saints Foundation will be working in partnership with British Cycling this year to offer regular training rides and advice to all riders. You can find out more about this in the Information Pack download below.

The target fundraising amount for each participant is £450 – your fundraising will help to support Saints Foundation’s projects within the local community.

All travel and accommodation will be provided by Saints Foundation and riders will also receive exclusive branded jerseys and bib shorts and a match ticket for Southampton FC vs. Stoke City.

On Friday 17th March, Hargroves Cycles will be hosting a special roller-racing event at St Mary’s Stadium.
