Gear up for The Miffy and Friends Charity Cycle Challenge

Published on: 17th March 2015

Anthony Temple is calling on cyclists to join a cycling fundraiser in support of The UK’s Light Fund and Holland’s Wilhelmina Kinderziekenhuis Children’s Hospital charities.

The London to Utrecht cycle is 300 miles and will take four days from 30th June to 3rd July. It’s a testing personalCycle-wordpress endurance challenge and an opportunity to experience the start of this year’s Tour de France Grand Depart opening weekend in Utrecht.

An all inclusive three night package (including hotels, ferry crossing, full catering including regular rest stops) has been planned by Sports Connection, which will be offering support along the way including support vehicles, mechanical and medical back-up and luggage transport.

Anthony Temple, Rainbow Designs, organising partner and supporter of the Miffy and Friends Charity Cycle Challenge, said: “The licensing community has made a name for itself as one that works hard, plays hard and is an immensely generous charity fundraiser – so the magnitude of our 300 mile charity cycle ride followed by the entertainment around this year’s Tour de France is a perfect fit for our industry. It’s going to be tough, we are going to be sore, but it will be exciting, great fun and amazing camaraderie along the way and at the end. For a challenge of this scale we would hope to raise a great deal of money for our charities.”
