Fundraise to save the velodrome
Fundraising is a fantastic way to support the Herne Hill Velodrome Trust and to raise awareness of this amazing venue.
Cycle in the Financial Times Sportive - 11 May 2014
Why not sign up for the London Cycle Sportive, for 50km, 100km or 100miles of road riding (including Box Hill in the 2 longer versions), ending with a lap of the track at Herne Hill Velodrome (HHV)? The event takes place on Sunday, 11 May 2014. Last year, our star, David, raised more than £1300 for HHV, riding the 100km course on a 1913 Dursley-Pedersen bike!
The event organizers Human Race, have earmarked places for HHV supporters, who identify themselves on registration. HUMANRACE will be giving the whole of the entry fee to HHV, and we hope you will want to raise sponsorship money yourself for HHV too. Every little helps HHV and our plans to start building the replacement pavilion later this year.
To register please Click here and register as usual but please send us an email at email@example.com with the email you registered with so your entry fee can be passed on to the HHVT.
Take on a challenge
You could take part in a sponsored ride, like Stephen, who is riding from London to Paris (on a single speed!) and has raised nearly £3,000 so far for the trust. Or like Alieen and Steve who are braving Scottish weather by cycling 1000 miles around the country for Herne Hill Velodrome Trust and Cancer Research UK.
Hold an event
You could also pick the Herne Hill Velodrome trust as your charity for an upcoming event. In 2012, Catford Cycling Club donated an amazing £10,000 to the trust from the Hell of the Ashdown Sportive, and Vulpine clothing company donated to the Friends of the Velodrome after their Christmas Fete.
Get in touch to chat about your event and how we could get involved.
