Seven superheroes will be taking on the London to Brighton cycle ride this Sunday 11 September to raise money for Grace Eyre.
The 55-mile trip starts at Clapham Common in London and ends on Madeira Drive in Brighton.
Every pound raised will go towards providing projects and services that enrich and enhance the lives of adults with learning disabilities and autism in our local communities.
Kathy and Peter
Kathy Agashi used to work with Grace Eyre Ambassadors in Our Voices. She and her dad, Peter, are cycling to celebrate her 40th birthday.
Martin Toft is Choices Outreach Team Leader for Brighton & Hove. He has been training very hard on the weekends and has even ridden up Ditchling Beacon TWICE already to prepare!
Peter Dupont has been a dedicated volunteer for many years. He has done the ride a couple of times before. It is great fun and all for a good cause, so he back again this year!
Mike Church is a Grace Eyre supporter and friend. He is fundraising for Grace Eyre because he has met many of the people Grace Eyre supports and heard first hand how much our charity means to them.
Simon and Jane
Simon Owen is a Grace Eyre trustee. He and his wife Jane want to raise money for the Big Build – a project to deliver a better community space and flats for people with learning disabilities.
Support Team Grace Eyre
You can support our amazing cyclists by in two ways:
- Come and cheer them across the finish line
- Donate via their fundraising pages
Come and cheer them across the finish line
It would be wonderful if we can get lots of people from Grace Eyre down to cheer our cyclists over the line. They will have just cycled 55 miles – including the uphill monster that is Ditchling Beacon – so they deserve a hero’s welcome!
It is going to be great day with a fantastic atmosphere, and it would be brilliant to see lots of people there.
The finish line is on Madeira Drive on Brighton seafront. Super speedy riders will start arriving at about 9:00 am. Most of the riders are expected to arrive between 12:00 noon and 3:30 pm.
We will have a Grace Eyre stall in the dedicated charity area at the finish line so come and say hi!
Donate via their fundraising pages
Please consider supporting our cyclists with a donation. You can donate to each cyclist via the links above.
Every donation we receive helps people with learning disabilities to maximise their independence and lead the lives they choose.
