Updated Event Rules

Following feedback from the 2017 Bike Ride, the committee have agreed two new rules for the 24 Hour Bike Ride, which are:

  • to ensure that riders do not wear ear pieces or headphones, which would distract from safe cycling
  • we also ask that if an electrically assisted bike is needed by a rider due to disability or infirmity, then the Admin team are made aware at least 1 week before the Bike Ride, so permission can be granted for its use

The updated Event Rules are available here.

2018 Ride – More Money to Charities

The 2018 Crudwell 24 Hour Bike Ride will be taking place the weekend of 23rd/24th June, and the teams and riders will once more be raising money for their chosen charities – and having a great weekend of cycling, music, food and fun at the Crudwell Village Hall. This year the organising committee have decided to change the split of fund raising, so that 80% of every pound raised through direct donations is paid to the teams’ charities. The other 20% will go to the Village Hall fund.

This means that even more of the money you raise will go to your chosen charity, and we hope this will encourage even more teams to enter, meaning more money will be raised at this fantastic community event. So please consider whether you can form a team, or simply join one. It could be a team from your workplace, your sports club, church, as well as the usual school teams. Team registration will open from February 13th (we’re avoiding the 14th!)

As well as taking part as a team captain or rider, we are always looking for volunteers to help either on the weekend, or to join the organising committee. It’s a great way to meet other people in the village, and actively support one of the two community events that makes Crudwell stand out. Please contact a member of the committee, or via this website under We Need You!

Thank you!

A huge thank you to everyone for your support with the 2017 bike ride!

We look forward very much to seeing you for the 2018 ride, on the 23rd and 24th of June 2018.
