Afasic Bike Ride 2017 – ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ !
We will once again be organising our own bike ride this year and very much hope that you will want to take part. This year we plan to cycle from London to Bath over the weekend of Saturday 24th – Sunday 25th June 2017.
We will in fact be ‘going on a bear hunt’ as our regular cycling supporter Jonathan is taking Leyton, the bear he found abandoned by the roadside, for a bath in Bath. They will be setting off a day or two early and we will be trying to find them!
Saturday 24: London to Newbury
Sunday 25: Newbury to Bath
You can join us for one day, or you can do both days, it’s up to you. Each day will involve about 60 miles of cycling.
Our rides are always very friendly events, with lots of help, support and encouragement along the way – so come along, take part and help raise much needed funds for Afasic!
“The organisation really was terrific, we felt spoilt!” John.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, everyone was so friendly and welcoming and it was a pleasure to meet you all.” Alistair.
Prudential 100 Mile Ride
Entries for the 2016 event are now closed but Afasic has guaranteed places for the Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 event in 2017.
This iconic cycle ride starts in the Olympic Park in Stratford and finishes on the Mall, with 100 miles of cycling through London and the Surrey countryside on closed roads in between. The event takes place on Sunday 30 July 2017 and we are looking for riders to take part and raise sponsorship for Afasic.
This event is always oversubscribed, so if you want to guarantee your spot on the start line then contact Mark Thompson for details of our guaranteed places.
After the 2015 event Richard said “it ranks as one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life.”
Please do take part in a bike ride for Afasic, your support really can make a difference.

Thank you for organising the ride. I really enjoyed it. I felt really encouraged by knowing the support cars were there if I needed them and our ‘tail end Charlie’, Jonathan was fantastic. Sue
