Fancy taking on a new challenge while helping to raise thousands of pounds for charity? Sign up now to take part in the Anderson Bike Ride 2022, on Saturday, June 11.

It’s back bigger and better than before – and you can take part in this much-loved annual event!

The last ride in 2019 saw 150 riders covering 55 miles – and raising more than £50,000 for the Anderson Charitable Foundation, which in turn supports various charities each year.

 

Having been forced to pause during the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the ride is making a welcome return this year, and you can get involved.

Countryside challenge

Book your place today to take part in the ride, which starts at Anderson’s head office in Chelmsford, and heads out across the Essex countryside, through picturesque villages on a rural route.

Riders will arrive at 8.30am for a briefing at 9am, with the first teams leaving at 9.20am. There will be four stops en-route where food and refreshments will be supplied.

The route of the Anderson Bike Ride 2022

This is not a race. The winning team is not the first team back as general knowledge is key. There will be a themed quiz carried out throughout the day with the finishing line at Springfield Lodge.
Friends and family are invited to welcome the riders’ triumphant return and celebrate with a BBQ and a well-stocked bar as well as bouncy castles to occupy our younger guests.

Ways to take part

To enter a team, a minimum of four people is required with a maximum team size of 15 riders. If you are entering a team, you will be asked for a team name along with the team captain’s details. We will set up an online JustGiving donation page for you and we encourage teams to create their own branded riding tops. Should you need any advice on where to get these printed, we can help you.

Individual entrants are just as welcome, so get in touch and we will put together barbarian teams.

Each rider is expected to raise a minimum of £150 sponsorship, which will be donated to the Anderson Charitable Foundation – which was founded by chairman Mark Anderson.

We rely on the generosity and support of our staff, partners and clients to raise both funds and awareness for our chosen charity. Therefore, please feel free to invite colleagues and friends to join the ride.
