Help find the hidden password to unlock one of life‘s most sought-after mysteries.

Our hapless scientist, Joseph King has got himself into a pickle again and needs your help to reveal his latest earth-shattering discovery.

Solving the puzzle involves taking a 22-mile cycle ride around ‘Kings Island’ picking up clues to what could simply be the most important crossword that you will ever encounter.


The cycling treasure hunt costs £20 per entry, which could be an individual or a group.

All proceeds from this event will go towards our new Life Change Fund. This fund supports a range of YMCA services, projects and programmes to help young people build the resilience, belief and confidence to overcome the challenges they face.

Here are just a few of our projects that the Life Change Fund will support:

  • New £1.5m housing scheme in Horley for 12 young people aged 18+
  • New youth work offer reaching over 1,000 young people aged 11–19
  • New emotional wellbeing and mental health service supporting over 2,300 young people
  • YMCA Young Volunteers Project
