The 2012 Saving Faces Family Cycle Day will take place on Sunday the 10th of June at the Redbrdge Cycle Centre in Hainault.
Last year 150 people from 3 years of age to 75 cycled and raised £45,000 for our revolutionary new Study Centre which will determine best treatment for all patients worldwide. This year join us for a great day out at the same time as helping us raise even more funds.
- 7.5 miles from junction 27 of the M25.
- 4 miles from junction 5 of the M11.
- just off the A12 and North Circular.
Set your own time or distance. There are three bike circuits for people of all abilities, and you can hop off for a rest at any time:
- 1 km flat wide tarmac road for children and the less fit (like me!).
- 1 km hilly tarmac road for the fitter cyclists.
- 3.25 km mountain bike circuit for the adventurous.
When you register you can upload or send us a photo of yourself and/or your children and we will make a personalised poster for the workplace or school to help to gain sponsorship.
Read what one our young participants has to say and check out some of the fun from last year.
SAVING FACES CYCLE CHALLENGE by Tabitha Elliott, aged 7
I did the cycle challenge because Professor Hutchison helped me when I was little and I want to help other people now and because I like cycling.
I did 10km and won a bubble wand in the colouring in a bike competition. I liked making a book mark too. I went on the flat track because it was easier for me. Next time I’m going to try the mountain one and the slopey one and next time I’m going to do 15 or 20km. Mummy and Granny sponsored me.
It was really, really, really fun because it was my first time riding my bike on a proper track. The best thing was getting a tee shirt and a medal and a poster. My medal and my poster are now at school on the Award Board.
I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again at the next one.
