Double 100 Cycle Challenge for the Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance

by Holly Blades

Life-saving charity Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance's is appealing for cyclists to take part in this year's Double 100 Cycle Challenge. More than 80 riders joined last year's inaugural event and organisers are now aiming to at least double the number of entries.

The ride will start and finish at the Sussex and Surrey helicopter base at Dunsfold Park near Guildford - home of BBC's Top Gear - on Sunday, June 10th. Cyclists will set off on either a 100-mile or 100km route which takes in all four counties covered by the Air Ambulance.

Project Manager Corinne Hitching said: "This is an exciting opportunity for cyclists to take on an adventure and challenge of a lifetime.


"The helicopters are often called to cyclists injured on the road or on the North and South Downs so this is a great way of saying thank you to the crew for helping them in their hour of need. 

"A team of our crew members including pilots, doctors and paramedics will be taking part so we would encourage the public to join them and help raise essential funds."

All entrants must pay a registration fee of £25 and a minimum sponsorship will be required. For more information and to register call Corinne Hitching on 07784 229717 or email corinneh@kssairambulance.org.uk
