Gary Waterfall finishing RAFA Rides 2019

Wednesday 1st December 2021

The perfect cycling gift could be just a click away. Treat the cycling fanatic in your life this Christmas to a place in RAFA Rides 2022.

Gift entries will come with a fabulous RAFA Rides Christmas present comprising a water bottle and cycling accessories. Best of all, we’ll save you the hassle of wrapping them, as they will come already wrapped!

RAFA Rides 2022, made possible thanks to generous ongoing support from security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin UK, will take place on Saturday 11 June.

Riders can tackle 25, 50, 75 or 100 miles, depending on their level of fitness (and optimism) or join virtually from anywhere in the world with an internet connection.

The 2021 event saw 810 riders join together from around the world to take part. This included 250 who cycled routes around the beautiful Leicestershire and Rutland countryside, with the rest joining virtually from 20 countries across six continents, all united in cycling for a cause close to their hearts.

Wing Commander Simon Nevin from RAF Waddington says:

“I was really involved in RAFA Rides 2021 and am excited to be working with the team again for 2022. The event is incredible, not only for the awesome money raised to support our RAF family, but on the day – joining cyclists from across the world, and meeting friends closer to home.

“I would say this is the perfect cycling gift. Do a great thing, for an amazing cause and get out on your bike – what’s not to love?”
