On 1 August, 30 lovely Bristol dwellers will be cycling on their merry way from Bristol to Bestival, helping the festival reduce their carbon footprint and raising money for our Earn-a-Bike programme.
We’re stoked to have been chosen as the community project for this ride, which will see at least £6,000 raised for our core community work to get marginalised people from across Bristol out on two wheels.
The riders will pedal 100 miles over 2 days as riders head for the beautiful Lulworth Estate in Dorset, where the festival is held.
Those signed up have already begun their fundraising efforts, including four fabulous dancers – Emily, Doug, Bella and Sarah – who are hosting a fundraising event at the Southbank Club from 3pm on 15th July. Tickets for the event are a suggested minimum donation of £5 and in return you will get a free beginners lindy hop taster class taught by Bristol Swing Riot‘s very own Sam Dobbie. There will also be a selection of homemade delicious cakes and craft beer, tea, coffee and soft drinks available for you to buy.
You can see how all the other lovely riders are doing with their fundraising on the Bike to Bestival page, and make sure you head to their individual pages to offer your support and donate what you can!
There are still a few places left on this ride so if you fancy a bit of an adventure this summer which will help get marginalised people from across Bristol out on two wheels, sign up here!
