Seven cyclists from Bradford Cycle Club will set out from Bradford on 20th July aiming for Valencia in Spain. The cyclists will cover approximately 1,000 miles on roads in England and Spain, including crossing a number of high mountain ranges in Spain, the most mountainous country in Europe. The section in England will take in the Peak District, Stratford On-Avon, the Cotswolds and Stonehenge before arriving in Portsmouth. The section in Spain will span from Santander on the Atlantic coast passing through the ‘Picos de Europa’ and ‘Los Montes Universales’ before arriving in Valencia on the Costa Brava, on the Mediterranean sea.
100% of money raised through sponsorship of this bike ride will go to the Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank. This will help the volunteers at the Foodbank to provide food to an increasing number of vulnerable people in the Bradford District.
Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank is a small Bradford based charity who spend 95% of money from donations on food, so you know that money you donate will reach the people who most need it.
