The 3 Abbey Cycle Challenge!

The 3 Abbey Cycle Challenge!
We did it
On 19th July 2021 we successfully raised £3,550 with 68 supporters in 14 days

The BAK Foundation is raising money for Leeds Mind, a charity that helps people recover from periods of poor mental health.

Started on 5th July 2021 Stanningley, England, United Kingdom

This year the BAK Foundation has organised the 3 Abbey cycle challenge in aid of Leeds Minds. Following on from the success of last year's 100 mile ride, we have set out to challenge ourselves again by attempting to cycle the 3 abbeys; Bolton Abbey, Fountains Abbey and Kirkstall Abbey!

We will be running two alternative routes for any cyclists who are wishing to complete charity ride. These will consist of a 30 mile route and a 50 mile route, both of which will visit at least 1 abbey.


When? The event will take place on 17th July 2021

Where? The event will start at the BAK Foundation Head Office in Pudsey and we will head out to Bolton Abbey, Fountains Abbey and returning to Kirkstall Abbey for the last leg.

Target: £3000

We would love for you to be involved in this great cause and not only raise funds but also raise awareness through your family and friends, whether that is in person or through your social channels. Let's get this word out to everyone you know.

I accept this challenge. Do you?
