Two cycle events this weekend with ATD

Across the Divide has a busy weekend planned.

Tomorrow sees the start of the London to Paris bike ride with Visa – who are fundraising for NSPCC.  They cycle over 300 miles in just 4 days but what an amazing trip if not an exhausting one.  They will start in the centre of London, cycle through the rolling Kent countryside, across the channel, along quiet French roads and into the heart of Paris finishing at the Eiffel Tower.  Why not join us on this event next year?

Then on Saturday sees the NSPCC once again with a cycle event in Buckinghamshire – the Big Bike Ride  A stunning cycle event through picturesque countryside with the choice of taking part in a 25km, 50km or 75km route.  Why not join them in Sussex next weekend?

The British Red Cross is a volunteer-led humanitarian organisation that helps people in crisis, whoever and wherever they are.  The British Red Cross enables vulnerable people at home and overseas to prepare for and respond to emergencies in their own communities. And when the crisis is over, they help people recover and move on with their lives.
