Starting 21st October 2019

From Carlisle to Croydon!

In October this year, staff and supporters across the OnSide Network will be completing a huge feat of cycling to raise money for their chosen Youth Zone.

Riding from the most northernly Youth Zone in Carlisle to the most southernly in Croydon, cyclists will be stopping off at each Youth Zone to meet with young people and celebrate their journey. Setting off on Monday 21st October, the five-day challenge will see riders covering almost 500 miles of England’s roads all in the aid of the fantastic youth work taking place up and down the country.

Bringing together the

OnSide Network

This huge celebration of OnSide’s network highlights the dedication supporters and staff have to providing young people with somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.

Made up from a combination of Founder Patrons, Supporters, board members, volunteers and staff members, cyclists are undertaking the mammoth challenge of peddling nearly 500 miles with the aim of raising awareness and funds for the network and individual Youth Zones.

Young people are at the heart of everything we do at OnSide and will be part of the fun, celebrating the arrival of the group at each Youth Zone!
