This event is the perfect opportunity to get on your bike and raise funds to help vulnerable children and young people, whilst enjoying the great outdoors alongside friends, family and workmates.

The  35 mile ride isn’t a race, so whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or it’s been a few years since you’ve jumped on your bike, this ride is for everyone.

Since On Your Bike for Barnardo’s began in 1982 thousands of fantastic cyclists have helped raise almost £600,000 to help some of the most vulnerable children and families in Wales.

All Barnardo’s cyclists receive dedicated support, regular advice on training and fundraising, a post-ride party and more!
