Tour de Vale 2020 – Entries Open!
WheelPower – The National Charity for Wheelchair Sport, based in Buckinghamshire is inviting you to join this year’s Mix96 Tour De Vale Charity Bike Ride 2020.
‘It’s a great community event with a really positive atmosphere and we’re really excited to see everyone getting on their bikes on Sunday 7 June 2020 doing their bit for a worthwhile cause. There’ll be medals for everyone who crosses the finish line and cyclists will be able to clock their personal best!’, continues Jo.
‘Without WheelPower, the world would be strange place’, commented Kris Aves, the Westminster Bridge attack victim and WheelPower beneficiary at the Mix96 Tour de Vale Charity Bike Ride 2019 event, Buckinghamshire’s biggest charity bike ride in aid of the wheelchair sports charity. Entries can be made online at www.tourdevale.com
Last year, the family friendly bike ride raised just over £56,000 for WheelPower across 1,409 cyclists. However, the challenge is on to beat this amount in 2020. Participants ranged from 1 to 86 years old with three routes to choose from everyone is welcome.
Congratulations to our youngest Mix96 Tour de Vale Top Fundraiser from 2019, Mateusz, who raised £694.58. ‘I am thrilled to have raised so much for such a worthwhile cause. I asked family, friends and my football team to support me’, comments Mateusz.
Funds from the Mix96 Tour De Vale Bike Ride have helped support some of WheelPower’s biggest accessible sporting events throughout the year such as the Inter-Spinal Unit Games, National Junior Games, and Primary & Junior Sports Camps.
Kris Aves, who kindly attended the event to award medals to those who had completed their cycle routes, commented: ‘Without things like the Mix96 Tour de Vale Charity Bike Ride, WheelPower wouldn’t work. This main event supports the introduction of people into sport.
