Story

For over 20 years, Cycling UK Wantage has organised a festive fundraising event supporting Whizz Kidz, the children's mobility charity: the Annual Mince Pie Ride up Uffington White Horse Hill in Oxfordshire. We have long valued this connection, as the vision of Whizz Kidz is to empower young wheelchair users by providing the wheelchairs, equipment, support and confidence-building experiences they need and any cyclist knows the value and freedom that personal mobility provides.

As part of this fundraising effort, we challenge riders to climb the great Hill at a time of their choosing between 2nd and 24th December (on their own or in a group), take a selfie or photo at the top for proof, get extra respect for taking their own mince pie up there and raise money for Whizz Kidz. Our target is to see 100 riders complete the challenge and to raise £1,500 for Whizz-Kidz.

We ask participants to post their photos on the club Facebook page
