Acca will be holding its first ever Charity Bike Ride to help children in need in the Algarve. It is open to everyone over the age of 16, all you need is a bike, a helmet (although both can be hired for the day), a reasonable level of fitness and quite a bit of determination.
Pre-registration is required and will cost €20 (this goes towards the target of €50 sponsorship) and ensures you a place on the ride. A full information pack with advice on training, a tee-shirt and a drink and snack on completion.
Advice and training is available from Activity Algarve (professional organisers of group bike rides across the Algarve). A special training schedule is open to all participants starting 6 weeks prior to the ride and it is advisable to do at least some training, please go to www.activityalgarve.com for details.
All proceeds from the ride will go towards local children and they are hoping to raise at least €5,000!
