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?

Join us on the India Bike Open Event

We are very excited about our India Bike Ride taking place in March 2009. Our exhilarating bike ride starts in Bundi, a captivating little town which has retained a medieval atmosphere, and finishes at Bharatpur National Park. We travel along the Aravali mountain range (the oldest mountain range in the world), past tribal villages, fascinating temples, dense forest and sandy deserts, with views of dramatic ruined forts. Climbs are followed by exciting descents, as we ride past rivers, small lakes and fascinating wildlife like neelghai or blue bull (India’s largest antelope), deer, peacocks, and possibly even tigers. This exciting adventure comes to an end near the red sand stone buildings of the greatest Mughal Emperor – Akbar, just short of the Taj Mahal.

This Open Event will give you a real insight into this wonderful country and remember you can raise funds for the charity of your choice.
