Bruges 3&1 | Redhill to Bruges cycle ride in 1 or 3 days
Thursday 3 – Sunday 6 June 2021

Even if you’ve not been on your bike for a few years or always wanted to start cycling, we can get you started and even get you to Bruges!

Join us on this wonderful 160 mile road cycle from Redhill to the stunning city of Bruges! We offer free training right up to the event and will guide and help you on all aspects on cycling, from cycling on roads to what gear to wear and advice on the right bike to use. We will ensure you gain all the skills you need to make this an event to remember.

Want to raise the bar a little? Then do it in ONE day, the choice is yours. Both 3 and 1 day options are fully supported and the cost of the trip includes free training, all travel, accommodation, breakfast, lunch, commemorative medal and bespoke YMCA Bruges 3&1 cycle shirt. All bikes and luggage will be transported back to the YMCA for you to pick up on Sunday evening.

3 day option | Thursday 3 - Sunday 6 June 2021

The three-day option will leave the YMCA on Thursday 3 June and start its 160-mile ride by heading to the picturesque town of Tenterden where you will spend the night before departing to Dover to board the ferry over to historic Dunkirk. On arrival, the next part of the route travels through Northern France into Belgium at finishing in the remarkable and beautiful city of Ypres where you will be able to experience the moving Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate.

Following a night in Ypres, you will make your way across Belgium to the city of Bruges and witness its beautiful canals and cobbled streets. After a well-deserved night out in Bruges, the next day you will travel on Eurostar back to London.

Cost – £465

Includes all transport, support, hotel accommodation, Eurostar, YMCA Bruges 3&1 cycle shirt and medal.

Fundraising - change a child's life in East Surrey!

Pledge to raise £500 to help change a child’s life in East Surrey!

All money raised from our 2021 challenge events will go towards our new Life Change Fund. This fund will be dedicated to supporting children and young people in the local community to access new opportunities and grow as individuals. Here are just a few of the ways this new fund will help:

  • Supporting young people in our supported housing projects with job applications or to access full-time education.
  • Providing financial support to families who need it so children can access our fantastic children’s playschemes and disability short breaks.
  • Funding youth clubs and support groups for young people to meet peers in a safe space
  • And much more…

Any amount you can raise will help to change a life for a local child/young person in the local area, so please consider fundraising for us.

If you prefer the more traditional method of fundraising, please download an official sponsorship form. Alternatively, you can make a donation to YMCA East Surrey towards the Life Change Fund.

Read more about our tips on fundraising or speak to a member of our team who will be more than happy to help you with ideas.
