Starting and finishing at the Good Gym MK in Kiln Farm, you can choose from three routes. Each route will take you out of Milton Keynes and into the surrounding countryside, tackling ascents and descents, all for a great cause.

This is a fundraising event where we ask participants to raise a minimum of £100 to support Willen Hospice and the care we provide.

What’s on offer:

  • There will be food and water stations.
  • Signposted routes and GPX files for bike computers.
  • Medal for each participant at the finishing line.
  • Friendly volunteers and marshals at pitstops along the routes.
  • First aiders and support vehicles to pick up participating cyclists who have any mechanical issues along the route.
  • An event photographer. Please note that our photographers are volunteers and we cannot guarantee a photo of everyone.
