Bike Ride to Chelsea

Cyclists Embark on Mammoth Ride To Raise Funds

20 March 2019

On April 17, a total of 26 riders will be setting off from Burnley Football Club to embark on an International journey in support of the Barry Kilby Prostate Cancer Appeal. 
The first leg of the journey will be 99 miles, from Burnley across to Hull, where the riders will board the ferry across to Zeebrugge. 
On day two, the riders will continue in the saddle from Zebrugge, heading towards Dunkirk.
There will be slight detour on this route while the riders pay their respects at the Ramscappelle military cemetery, where many Burnley men from the East Lancs regiment are laid to rest. 53 miles for this leg of the journey and day two will finish at Dunkirk.
On day three, the riders will take the ferry from Dunkirk to Dover. 
Then, on the final day, the riders will make their way from Dover and ride the 92 miles up to Chelsea Football Club, taking in the sights of London on their way. 
Funds raised from the cycle ride will be split: 90% to the Barry Kilby Prostate Cancer Appeal and 10% to Burnley FC in the Community. 
All riders are covering their own expenses for the ride, so every penny donated is going to good causes.  
We’d really appreciate your support with this and you can make donations through this link.
A special thank you to sponsors, BooHoo, for sponsoring the riders’ jerseys and funding the back-up driver.
Also to King’s Taxis, Burnley, who will be transporting riders and their bikes from London back to Burnley.
