Join our friends, Extra Mile for three days’ cycling on country roads and lanes from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 September 2021, and raise vital funds for your local Hospice.
Friday – travel to Gloucester and ride either 40 or 20 miles through the rolling countryside and picturesque villages of the North Cotswolds, in the Bourton on the Water/Burford area. The aggregate elevation is about 2,300 ft on the longer route; 1,300 on the shorter.
Saturday – tackle either 65 or 40 miles over slightly more challenging terrain through the glorious Wye Valley and Forest of Dean, providing an international element (Wales!) to our adventure. The aggregate elevation is some 5,800 ft on the 65-miler, 3,500 ft for the shorter route.
Sunday – again your choice is either 65 or 40 miles, this time through the picturesque Cotswolds south of Gloucester and some roads alongside the river Severn. Aggregate elevations 4,000 and 2,200 ft.
We’ll host our famed Gala Dinner on the Sunday evening to celebrate the completion of the Challenge. Travel home on Monday 27 September.
The entry fee is just £295 per person, assuming twin room sharing – amazing value thanks to the leg-work donated by our organisers and marshals (all volunteers), and financial donations from our fantastic commercial supporters.
Reserve your place today with a £40 registration fee. The rest of the entry fee (£255) is payable by 31 July 2021.
We also ask you to raise a minimum of just £200 per person (excluding gift aid) for charity. Experience shows most participants raise more. If you choose Willen Hospice as the charity to support, 100% of the funds you collect will come to us.
The Challenge is NOT a race. Start times will be staggered, to avoid bunching.
We will comply with all Covid-19 regulations in force at the time of the event. If they require us to cancel the event, our refund policy is set out below.
Methods of payment are shown on the entry form. The registration fee is not refundable. As always Extramile would make every effort to obtain refunds on entrants cancellations. This cannot, however, be guaranteed.
The Magnificent Severn Cycle Challenge 2021 is organised and promoted by Extra Mile Challenges (charity registration number 1100243), a collaboration between the Rotary Clubs of Milton Keynes Grand Union and of Bedford Park.
