Taking part and how to register

THE QUEEN ELEANOR CYCLE RIDE - WITH A DIFFERENCE

In 2020, we adapted the way we organised the Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride, so as to take account of the social distancing restrictions in place at the time. We are delighted to say that 30 cyclists raised £22,000 to support the work of The Connection at St Martin-in-the-Fields with homeless people in central London. The QECR Committee has now decided to build on that successful experience and offer participants two alternative ways to take part in 2021.

So, subject of course to any remaining Covid-19 restrictions, over the usual August Bank Holiday weekend, 27-30 August 2021, we hope to be able to invite you once again to join the group ride along the route of the Eleanor Crosses, as normal and as described in this website. However, as an alternative, you will be able instead to opt to commit to cycling a total of 200 miles (the length of the QECR route) in your home area in a series of daily routes of your choosing, returning home each night. If you opt for this alternative, you can choose your routes for scenic reasons, to follow a historical theme - anything that takes your fancy. In both cases, we will provide a fundraising pack, sponsor form and a QECR Virgin Money Giving fundraising page that you can link to.

If you would rather take on a shorter distance, that is also your choice - as long as your tell your sponsors!

So we do hope you will consider joining us for the Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride 2021, and help raise vital funds to support the Connection’s ongoing work with those who continue to sleep rough or are in vulnerable housing in the centre of London.

You will find more details about the Queen Eleanor Cycle Ride on our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/QECR2020/. If you have questions or would like to discuss the Ride in more detail, please contact Charles Woodd on 07962 213494, or at queeneleanorcycle@gmail.com.

Full details, and the opportunity to register for QECR 2021 will be available early in 2021.
