Saints Foundation’s Big Bike Challenge 2017 information evening takes place at St Mary’s next week.
The Big Bike Challenge is set to return next year, ahead of Southampton’s final home game of the 2016/17 campaign.
The two-day event will see riders covering 180 miles from Bet365 Stadium to St Mary’s, arriving in time to see Saints take on Stoke City.
Riders will travel up to Stoke on the evening of Friday 19th May, and will kick start the first 90-mile leg of the ride on the Saturday, followed by the remaining 90 miles to St Mary’s on Sunday 21st May 2017.
“Our 2016 Big Bike Challenge was a great success, raising over £25,000 for Saints Foundation,” explained Fundraising Officer Amy Bennett.
“Our next ride will be the longest distance that we’ve attempted in the seven years that the Big Bike Challenge has been running, so we really hope to get lots of riders of all abilities taking part!”
All travel and accommodation will be arranged by Saints Foundation and riders will also receive exclusive branded jerseys and bib shorts.
Saints Foundation’s fundraising target for the latest Big Bike Challenge is £450 per rider.
An information evening will be held at St Mary’s on Monday 21st November, starting at 6.30pm in the Markus Liebherr Lounge, for potential participants to learn more about the route, training schedules, fundraising support and the causes that the donated money will support.
