Help us support Alzheimer’s Research UK

For every winding pass, muddy trail and gravel path we ride at UK Cycling Events, we think it’s important to give a little back.

When you enter a UK Cycling Event, you’ll have the chance to support our official charity partner, Alzheimer’s Research UK.

We believe it’s a cause that everyone can relate to. It’s likely we’ll all meet someone who will be affected by dementia at some point in our lives. People who, like us, love cycling and being active. By riding your bike with us, you can help to change that.  

Here’s how you can help to make an impact

Option 1: Ride the No Excuses Series

The No Excuses Series is our free to ride event with the entry price being refunded to those who turn up. Or you’ll be given the option to donate it.  

For those that don't show up, your ticket money automatically goes to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

With standard and epic distances to suit all riders, there’s really no excuse!


Option 2: Ride our CDD events

Ride either of the two events supporting Cycling Down Dementia (CDD) this Autumn.

CDD is set to run between 1 November 2019 and 31 January 2020, and challenges you to ride either 300 or 1,000 miles in this winter period to raise £150 to power …….

Turn up and ride, or help fundraise, and you’ll be given the option to clock your miles towards your target.  


Option 3: Make a donation when you enter any cycling event

Buy any ticket at and you can make an optional donation to Alzheimer’s Research UK in your basket. You can choose to donate as little as £1 right up to £20. Thank you!  

Option 4: Make a donation anytime

You can donate to Alzheimer’s Research UK quickly and easily any time you like by visiting the Alzheimer's Research UK donation page.
