On the 24th and 25th April our All Ability Cycling Club members set themselves the #TwoPointSixChallenge a fantastic initiative to combat the loss of donations from the cancellation of the London Marathon to support Disability Rights UK. We're delighted to share the news that Mark and Zubee completed 26 laps at our West Hub in Little Wormwood Scrubs and Jamie completed 26km at our East Hub in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

They've reached 86% of the target - with one final push we're sure we can reach the £250 mark. Here's Jamie sharing her thoughts on the importance of everyone having the right to exercise during lockdown:

'I didn't expect to be able to ride given the current situation, once Bikeworks said they could safely facilitate it I was definitely up for a couple of hours of freedom! For people who enjoy exercise but find it hard to access lockdown has felt like we have no 'right' to exercise. Understandably precaution are needed at the moment but many people rely on exercise to maintain their conditions, meaning no access to exercise could be putting them at other kinds of health risks. It was nice to get the chance to raise some money and to take part with the rest of the nation. I'd like to thank Bikeworks and especially Nick for enabling me to reach my 26k target, it was the physical and mental challenge I needed.'

A massive thank you to everyone who has donated.

Bikeworks is planning safe access to exercise through the return of its All Ability Cycling Clubs. We'll be adhering to social distancing, using PPE, and making shielding adaptations to our cycles. Keep up to date on Facebook, our website and on our newsletter. We will have even more clubs available throughout the week making sure that everyone has equal access to exercise.
