Rope Ride 2020

Date: 17th May 2020
Time: Registration from 7am
Location: Begin and end at Chartridge Combined School, Cogdells Lane, Chartridge, Bucks, HP5 2TW.

Join our CEO, Andy Jong, as he rides the Chiltern Hills in support of our partners, Glad’s House in Kenya.  They work with children who find themselves in a cycle of street and prison life. 

We are looking for 30 keen riders aged 17 and over, to tackle a course of 30 or 60 miles, hosted by Ride Chartridge, and be willing to raise a minimum of £160 for Rope.  There will also be a booking fee of £26, which is payable to British Cycling

“Braking The Cycle”

Our partners, Glad’s House, in Kenya run activities for children in prison which includes sports. Through these activities they develop relationships with the children and can support them with a social worker to help them gain freedom. Once they are out of prison they support them by finding homes and schools for the children.

Children like Max, who ran away from home in 2016 when his step-mother made life unbearable for him. Max spent the next few years in a cycle of homelessness, being picked up by the police, being returned home and then returning to the streets of Mombasa. Glad’s House met him in remand prison and over time developed a relationship with him. With their social work support Max is now out of prison, in a caring children’s home and attending school.

The Day

Everyone who takes part can look forward to a clearly signed route, a well-stocked lunch stop, a text-based timing service, event photographs and a goody-bag. The school will also host a kids’ festival with activities on the day.
