Saddle up, join Team Grand Appeal and go the distance for Bristol Children’s Hospital in our bespoke cycle ride

On 21-24th September this year, The Grand Appeal is running a truly unique event which will see a team of sponsored cyclists set off from Land’s End with the goal of reaching Bristol in just four days!

We’re looking for people to take on this bespoke cycling challenge, and help transform lives at Bristol Children’s Hospital.  You will cover 240 miles in 4 days, riding through the stunning English countryside of Cornwall, Dartmoor and Cheddar Gorge, all the way to Bristol. You’ll discover parts of the huge catchment area that the hospital covers, giving you the opportunity to see where some patients and families travel hundreds of miles from for world-class treatment, at Bristol Children’s Hospital.   

All riders will be fully supported from the moment you sign up, with fundraising advice and resources from our dedicated team, an iconic Wallace & Gromit cycling jersey, a pre-event ride to meet other participants, and technical support throughout the challenge itself. We’ll then enjoy a well-deserved team celebration on your triumphant return to Bristol!

If you consider yourself a cycling enthusiast wanting to give back, or you’re a beginner looking for a challenge, help The Grand Appeal save the lives of sick children, and achieve a fantastic personal goal to remember forever. 

Every mile you cycle will make a difference. Book your place now.

We have charity places available for this exciting night-time charity bike ride, which takes you on a tour of iconic sights including Clifton Suspension Bridge and the vibrant Harbourside. With 50km and 100km routes available, it's the perfect way to see Bristol like never before.

Nightrider isn’t a race, so you don’t need to worry about channelling your inner Olympian! It’s all about taking on a fun challenge with your friends, family and colleagues, seeing the sights, and raising vital funds.

There is a registration fee of £39 and we ask that you raise £175 minimum sponsorship for us - we'll then support you all the way to the finish line with tips and advice about your training and fundraising!

Use your pedal power for an amazing cause – join #TeamGrandAppeal and help transform the lives of sick children and babies at Bristol Children’s Hospital.
