Description

We are delighted to announce that Riding for Ups 'n' Downs IV will take place in July 2018, following another highly successful ride in 2017 which raised over £5000 for this worthy local cause. Over the previous 3 years this annual charity cycle ride has raised £25000 which is just amazing support for such a fantastic local charity.

Ups 'n' Downs is a local charity supporting families and individuals affected by Down's syndrome across Northamptonshire. Every penny raised through this event goes directly to pay for support services such as Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and Training for Schools; the charity relies on fundraising events such as this to be able to support its members throughout the year.

There are two ride options this year:

Option One - circa 100 to 105km's starting at 8am

Option Two - circa 50 - 55km's starting at 9.30am

Register before the 24th of June 2018 for our early bird price of £30 + any eventbrite fee. The early bird option guarantees you a ride jersey in the size of your choice.

Register on or after the 25th of June 2018 the registration fee increases to £35 + any eventbrite fees. For this option we are unable to guarantee that you will receive a ride jersey in your size or you may not receive a ride jersey at all.

The cost of entry also includes the following:

  • Entry to the route of your choice which are both fully signposted
  • Planned 'pitstops' including drinks and nutrition
  • Race pack including nutrition and other goodies
  • A warm welcome back to Earls Barton Cricket Club with a licensed bar, BBQ, Raffle & Prize Ceremony!


We will not be able to offer any refunds, transfers or defer any riders to 2019's ride.
