… then look no further, dear cyclist. I might have just what you’re looking for.
Perhaps you missed out on a spot in the ballot? Or you couldn’t commit to raising £500 for a given charity?
Maybe you’ve only just heard of the RideLondon sportive (where have you been!?) and you’re finding that places are now largely gone.
Whatever. Fear not. I have some….
Task Brasil Trust, a charity that provides shelter and support to street children in Rio de Janeiro, has still got places for cyclists that want to take part in the 2016 running of RideLondon (whoop!).
If you ride for Task Brasil, not only do you get the fantastic experience of taking part in a huge, closed road sportive around London and its environs, you get to spend the whole of August reminding people of your generosity whenever the Olympics comes on the TV.
If you ride for Task Brasil, registration is free and they set you a fund raising target of £200+, which is very much achievable.
In fact, if you sign up with Task Brasil, send me the details of your online fundraising page and I’ll start you off with a donation*.
(*I should probably limit this to the first couple of people that get in touch, in order to avoid bankruptcy….)
All you have to do if you’d like to register or would like more information is to email Nichola at [email protected] or call Task Brasil on 020 7735 5545.
