The annual Foundation Rides challenge organised by the Up and Under Foundation, a charity supported by RSK company Up and Under, will still be going ahead in June. Owing to the current restrictions due to COVID-19 however, participants may need to amend their challenges.
The month-long fundraising challenge, which raises money for disadvantaged youngsters, encourages participants to set their own bike ride challenge and raise at least £30 for the foundation. More information on the challenge and the causes it benefits is available in our previous article.
As participants set their own challenges, the foundation is encouraging people to take part but to set their goals according to whatever constraints they are now facing. Up and Under Foundation Trustee Lorna Fewtrell, for example, says that instead of cycling the Cheshire Cycleway as a bike tour, she will now complete the mileage as a combination of bike rides from home and on a turbo trainer.
If you would like to take part, there is still time to sign up and set your own (socially distanced) challenge, so long as it can be completed safely and adheres to current guidelines.
