Event Description

Manchester to London 2017

A challenge for even seasoned sportive riders, Manchester to London is unique, fully supported, and a celebration of British cycling and culture. The 220-mile ride is in aid of Ambitious about Autism, a UK charity that works to make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism.

Ride 220 miles through the heart of England in one of the most demanding and rewarding events of the year, raising money for Ambitious about Autism along the way.

Now in its fourth year, the Manchester to London challenge will be taking place on Sunday 3rd September 2017. Up to 300 riders will set off from the Manchester Velodrome at dawn, riding down the spine of the country through the Peak District, Midlands and the Chilterns before finishing at Ambitious about Autism’s TreeHouse school. Over the past three years the ride has raised over £770,000 in support of the charity and this year we want you to help us reach a million.

The Charity

TreeHouse School was founded in 1997 by a small group of parents whose children had autism. It was the start of an amazing journey that would help change the face of autism education in the UK forever. What started with four pupils grew to become a charity, Ambitious about Autism, that has supported thousands of children, young people and their families to learn, thrive and achieve. We are proud to have made the ordinary possible for so many children and young people with autism.
