26 March 2014

We're very excited that Tinkoff-Saxo, one of the world’s leading professional cycling teams, is backing a sponsored cycle ride on Sunday 27 April for Leonard Cheshire Disability and St Edward’s School in Oxford.
The Tinkoff-Saxo Teddies 2-Wheeler is a fun cycling event for people of all ages and abilities and is ideal for everyone from a beginner to professional cyclists.
The event is raising money for John Masefield House, our care home with nursing at Burcot near Abingdon. We've teamed up with St Edward’s School for the Tinkoff-Saxo Teddies 2-Wheeler 2014 cycle ride.
Anyone in and around Oxford is welcome to join the ride! All entrants will receive a special edition Tinkoff-Saxo Teddies 2-Wheeler cycling jersey.
With distances of 5, 50 and 100 miles to choose from, these are rides for all the family, as well as for experienced cyclists. All routes will start and finish at St Edward’s School, taking in the spectacular surroundings of Oxfordshire. The routes are fully mapped out, with guidance and support.
Simon Palferman at St Edward’s School said, ‘We're delighted Leonard Cheshire Disability will be supporting us as part of the Tinkoff-Saxo Teddies 2-Wheeler. We have close connections with John Masefield House and recognise their valued work as part of the community supporting disabled people.’
With preparations for this and our Cycle Together events well underway, we hope that sportive enthusiasts across the UK will be able to join us at one of these events in Oxford, Sandringham, the Peak District or the New Forest.
We believe that everybody should be given the chance to take part in sports if they want to, whatever their abilities. Find out more about our other inclusive events!
