Afasic Charity Bike Ride 2016
Following on from previous successful rides, Afasic is organising another charity bike ride on Saturday 25th June 2016.
There will be 2 route options on the day:
- The ‘Three Counties’ ride of approx. 32 miles (Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire).
- The ‘Four Counties’ Ride of approx. 66 miles (Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire & Suffolk).
Both are now open for registration and we very much hope that you will want to take part.
The rides will use cycle paths and smaller roads wherever possible. Maps and directions will be provided to all participants and the event will have a bike mechanic and support vehicles on hand to keep everyone on the move.
The rides will both start and finish at Audley End station and there will be parking available. The route is currently being finalised and more detailed information and timings etc. will follow nearer the date.
I really hope that you will be able to join us on this ride; it should be a great day out!
‘Journeys to the Centre’
Our volunteer cycling ‘guru’ Jonathan Edwards is organising a series of four, led bike rides in aid of Afasic. Each ride is approx. 20 miles going into central London from the N, S, E, and W edges of London using traffic free routes as much as possible. There is a maximum of 11 people per ride, so get in quick to avoid missing out.
The rides will take place on Sunday May 8, May 22, June 12 and June 19 2016. For more details please see below and for an entry form please email Jonathan Edwards.

Prudential 100 Mile Ride
Afasic has a few guaranteed places for the Prudential Ride London – Surrey 100 event in 2016.
This iconic cycle ride starts in the Olympic park and finishes on the Mall, with 100 miles of cycling through London and the Surrey countryside in between. The event takes place on Sunday 31st July 2016 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.
The organisation really was terrific, we felt spoilt! John
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
