Kiya Survivors' Big Ride 2010

2010 Kiya Survivors/Bike 360 Big Ride - August 21st and 22nd 2010

Love the outdoors and fancy a good challenge?

Then the Kiya Survivors’ South Downs Bike Challenge could be for you.

Kiya Survivors are a fantastic Brighton based charity that help disadvantaged children in Peru. Started by a local Brighton woman, the charity was hit hard earlier this year, when floods damaged some of their main sites. So if you fancy riding through the stunning South Downs for a great cause read on…

The Big Ride is in conjunction with the lovely peeps at Bike360 and all Big Ride participants will ride to raise much needed funds for Kiya Survivors’ centres in Peru whilst getting to enjoy:

  • a challenging two days off- road riding in the beautiful British countryside
  • a cool nights camping in the South Down’s National Park

2 days of stunning cycling action

The Big Ride will start from the Bike360 hub at Devils Dyke on 21st August, with full support from the Bike360 qualified team. Participants will ride approximately 100 km over two days.

Day 1 – August 21st - After Day 1’s Eastbourne leg you will arrive at your camp for a relaxing night, where tents, food, refreshments will be provided. (So no heavy tents in your backpack!)

Day 2 – August 22nd – Day 2 will see you continue your challenge, as you loop back to great fanfare at Devils Dyke. Lunch will be provided on both days.

Please note; the course is designed for cyclists of an intermediate level.
