One goal. One great cause. A whole lot of fun!
For our second annual Red Balloon Ride we’re upping the stakes and riding throughout the month of June to raise £10,000 – will you join us? You choose the time, route and distance that suits you, and then join us in raising funds to support bullied and traumatised children.
We’re raising a total of £10,000, but because everyone is different (and in true Red Balloon style), you get to pick the time, route and distance that suits you best.
Whether you’re new to cycling, an enthusiastic novice, or an expert on two wheels, join us and make the challenge your own.
Set your own targets
Will you join other participants in collectively raising £10,000 to help bullied and traumatised children? You can set a distance that suits you and you’ve got the whole of June, so make a time commitment that fits around your diary!
Perhaps you can team up with family, friends or people from work. Why not challenge colleagues from a neighbouring department to match your target? A little inter-team rivalry is a great motivator!
You can register as an individual or a team and we’ll send you a participant pack with everything you need to know to get inspired and out on the road.
Will you raise £25, £100, £1000 or even £10,000? The choice is yours!
