Charity bike ride from Edinburgh to London

For those of you who’re into ‘gently extreme’ – how about taking part in the Edinburgh to London bike ride? It’s a great alternative to the London to Paris ride and is the perfect physical challenge.

The route covers over 450 miles of challenging country, through the rugged fells of Cumbria to one of Britain’s best loved National Parks, the Yorkshire Dales, and on to the flat land of Lincolnshire and quaint villages of Cambridgeshire. Each day brings new sights and experiences as well as exciting cycling ranging from testing climbs to fast descents.

    It’s a nice way to help people in need and In my opinion charity means to help needy people and for that you don’t have to give money only you can donate things like handmade sweater’s and other woolen clothes, So that needy people get some relief at the time of winter.
