Calendar of Sportive and other rides

The club receives many notifications of sportive, charity and other rides.  When received they are listed here:



As a small local event organiser (Wiggle we’re not..) we look to support local cycling clubs with discounted pricing as we fully appreciate just how expensive the summer can get for regular riders.


 If any of your members is looking for a new challenge on Sunday the 5th April, we’re running the Sharpener Spring Sportive in the Chilterns, South Oxford and Aylesbury Vale and would like to offer them a discount of 15% by using THIS LINK. All event detail and downloadable gpx/mapping will be online shortly at
As cyclists ourselves we don’t do plastic medals and cheap energy gels – but riders do get tea/coffee/stacked food stations and a hotdog (or vegetarian equivalent) at the end.

Snoddington Manor, Snoddington Lane, Shipton Bellinger, Hants SP9 7UZ.

Some of the best rides in the country - a great day out in beautiful rural Hampshire with beer tent and a hot meal on return, good coffee & good company in a stunning and peaceful location.

Relax and enjoy the ride.

For information and entry.




I am writing to you today on behalf of Task Brasil Trust – The Abandoned Street Kids of Brazil charity, to enquire about the possibility of advertising our guaranteed golden bond places for the 2020 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey100 amongst yourselves, also by email and website if possible.

Task Brasil operates socio-educational programmes for disadvantaged or at-risk youth in Rio de Janeiro, whilst giving as much support as possible to ex-residents of Casa Jimmy. Casa Jimmy is our home in the local community which was financed by Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin in 1998, giving them the opportunity to thrive in life away from the streets.

We are a very small charity with limited resources but this does not make our cause any less worthwhile. Sadly the legacy of the Olympic Games being held in Rio has been largely negative with even fewer funds now available to help those who need them most. We hope therefore that riding and raising funds for us can be an appealing proposition for riders.

I am asking you today whether you would be willing to help us advertise our charity places for the 2020 Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100. We think it is likely that many people may not have had a chance to apply or will be lucky enough to obtain a ballot place in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey100.  We would provide them with the perfect opportunity to partake, with a very competitive fundraising pledge of £150 or more and can ensure that the funds raised go to our beneficiaries’ project rather than on admin costs.

The link to apply for a guaranteed place with Task Brasil is

Our projects have so far supported more than 1000 children and young people living in hardship.  We are committed to provide the level of support required to give children and teenagers the opportunities that they were not lucky enough to be handed in life. Help us to change more young lives for the better. If you would like to know a bit more about Task Brasil and what we do, you can check out our facebook page Task Brasil  page for more specific details and some wonderful photos of our beneficiaries and the work we do.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I do hope we hear from you soon.

Kind Regards,

Ligia da Silva

Dear Maidenhead & District CC,


By now your cyclists members would have received the results for the Prudential RideLondon – Surrey 100 2020. If you got a yes then CONGRATULATIONS! And good luck with the training! If you would like to choose to cycle for a charity, we would love to have your support.  We can provide you with a cycling jersey and plenty of fundraising resources.


If you got a no, and are looking to join the ride then look no further! We still have a few charity places available. Our charity places are £35 with a £325 sponsorship pledge to help us to continue to accommodate and support for vulnerable young people facing homelessness.  Get in touch to secure a place now!   For more information check out


Kind regards
