Additional Ride Added to Wembley Stadium
On the 11 of October we found out that the next years ride had been moved from its rearranged date of June 2021 and now will take place over the weekend of September 3-5th 2021.
This unfortunately will mean that not all our riders can make this new date due to commitments, we have Football players and managers on our team and who will be in pre-season as well as schools returning.
Those who cannot ride next June have raised a combined total of over £9,000.00, therefore we needed to work out how we can get these riders on their bikes in June so PCUK still get their much needed funds.
The football to Amsterdam ride alone raises around £600,000.00 per year which was lost this year. Since lockdown began virtually all fundraising has come to a standstill and under normal circumstances events this year would have raised in the region of £4.5 million. We need research now more than ever, which is why it really is devastating that so much of it has been brought to a standstill by the Covid-19 crisis.
We are now holding an event on the original date which we should be able to organise ourselves with respect to being Covid safe, we will still be cycling from the City Ground and still heading south, our destination though will be Wembley Stadium.
The route is still being worked on but it’s going to be over two days Thursday 3rd and 4th of June 2021, its roughly 125 miles to Wembley Stadium, more details will be released as we get them, also please keep your eyes open here as we may be opening this up for others to join us, if you are interested in joining us them please feel free to make contact for more information about this event or even our main Amsterdam ride
