Early diagnosis saves lives
You can get fit and take a bike ride on behalf of our charity at any time of the year, whether you are organising your own sponsored cycle ride or joining an official event with one of the many cycling events around the UK.
When you are ready to start fundraising, we have our own Just Giving webpage where you can set up your own personalised fundraising site for free and/or we can send you sponsorship forms if you requireplus as many leaflets as you want.
If you fancy going further afield, APS Support UK has partnered with two different charity challenge organisations to give you the opportunity to join either:
The London to Paris Bike Ride – this is our charity’s most popular cycling challenge and a must for any cycling enthusiast, regardless of riding ability. The five day bike ride connects two of the world’s most chic capital cities and takes place throughout the year - for a full listing of the cycle dates and further information, please click here
Many people take up the challenge by themselves while others cycle with their friends. Whichever you prefer, don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity and either sign up online or get in touch with us to book your place.
The Big Heart Bike Ride in Vietname and Cambodia 2017 is an Open Challenge in which everyone taking part will be raising for the heart charity of their choice.
As over 30% of APS patients will have some degree of heart disease, the organisers felt that we were well qualified to join in.
Organised by Action for Charity, the bike ride will take place from 17th-28th February 2017. There are two ways in which you can fund your Big Heart Bike Ride challenge. Both methods require you to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £299 when you sign up for the challenge.
This Big Heart Bike Ride will see you cycle 450km through two of South East Asia's most fascinating countries. The challenge starts in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City and finishes at the world heritage site of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Along the way you will experience breathtaking scenery, ancient temples and the warmth of the local people.
It will be a journey full of fun, friendship and incredible support as people of all ages and from all walks of life challenge themselves for an amazing cause. This fantastic challenge is a great opportunity to get fit, lose weight and have an experience of a life time all whilst raising significant funds to help our charity.
So, if you want to get your wheels in motion, achieve a lifetime’s ambition AND make a big difference to a small charity, please take up the challenge now.
Get in touch with us if you are taking part in any cycling event. It's really easy to set up a Just Giving fundraising page and we are more than happy to supply you with old-fashioned sponsor forms and leaflets.
