Extra Mile Challenge
Our biggest charity efforts comes through supporting the organisation of the Extra Mile Challenge annual relay cycling event.
The Extra Mile Challenge is an annual event organised by members of MKGU and Bedford Park Rotary Clubs.
It is an cycle ride covering around 500 miles for teams of 4, riding in relay through beautiful countryside on the European continent. The ride takes place over a couple of days in September with each rider typically covering 45 - 50 miles per day in 4 or 5 stages. A new route is chosen every year to pose a fresh challenge!
The riders have raised over £1m over the years, over which they donate 75% to a charity of their choice and the remainder is split between three charities nominated by the organisers.
The 2017 event will take place in Britanny between 21st and 25th September.
