Join Andrew Downie, Ataxia UK Trustee, and the South Downs Support Group on a beautiful cycle ride through the South Downs National Park in May.

This grand cycling event is now in its eighth year, taking riders over the glorious South Downs and winding their way through the sublime English countryside, while raising funds for Ataxia UK. Entries are now open!

There are two rides to choose from; a longer route (approximately 100km) and a shorter option (approximately 11km) so that the event is open to cyclists of all abilities and ages and has included riders with ataxia on hand-bikes and tandems.

As it's a fundraising event, there's a small entry fee of £20 for adults and £10 for kids (which includes lunch), and Andy asks that all participants to try and fundraise at least £100 for Ataxia UK.
