What is Ride Local for ellenor?

Challenge yourself to ride 100, 50 or 25 miles in a day, week, month or spread out between the 1 August and the 30 September. Keep active, have fun and raise vital funds to support families facing terminal illness. All abilities welcome!

Get on your bike and explore your local town or countryside in this fun cycling challenge for all the family. Alternatively, if you would prefer to stay at home, you can take on the challenge on a static bike!

Something for the family: Why not take the challenge as a family, and split the miles between you and your nearest and dearest*. 


Your Challenge:

Whether you choose to complete the 100, 50 or 25 mile challenge you’ll be taking on a cycle challenge to be proud of, and making a huge difference to adult and children facing terminal illness at this difficult time. 


How do I count my miles?

Keeping on top of your miles using a smartphone or a fitness tracker (such as Fitbit or Garmin) is by far the easiest way to track your miles. If you need help finding the best cycling tracking app for you, please get in touch with us at
