UK event update

We are now over half way in our UK event season and we thought you’d like to know the latest from our recent events.  We still have Just Bike, Oxfam Trail Trekker Ireland and Maggies Night hike all up and coming so we can’t quite relax just yet.  We have jotted down some feedback from the two Barclays events in Manchester and London raising funds for UNICEF and the Capgemini Wild Challenge for the Prince’s Trust.

Additional seats on our China Challenge in April 2010

Due to huge demand we have managed to secure some more seats on our Great Wall of China Challenge in April 2010.

Our China trek offers a truly unique experience. Not only is it a chance to visit one of the world’s most impressive historical sites but also, as a result of our local contacts, it offers a rare opportunity to trek and camp in a remote part of rural China and to experience local life in its most unspoilt state. In order to maximise the opportunities for interaction and learning about the local history and culture, a team of local translators support all our treks in China.  Join us now on this amazing charity challenge.

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?
