17 Jun 2022 - 24 Jun 2022

After young people complete their treatments, the Trust's work begins to help rebuild young people's lives.

That’s why on 17-24 June 2022, a team of up to 20 riders will take on this incredible challenge to cycle 600 miles (965 kilometres) between the Trust’s bases in Largs on Scotland’s West Coast to East Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

From the stunning tranquillity of the Scottish west coast and daunting ascents of the Lake District to the historic beauty of Ironbridge, the picture postcard market town of Ross-on-Wye and cathedral city of Wells, there are so many highlights.

And it all finishes in the festival atmosphere of Cowes, as the Isle of Wight hosts one of its biggest weekends of the year – the Round the Isle Race. Here young people the cyclists are riding for will be gathered to take part in the iconic yacht race.

Be one of them!
