SIGN UP OR DONATE TO OUR VIRTUAL CHARITY CYCLE EVENT.
Any bike, any distance, any donation
We know Covid-19 has stopped a number of events this year, but we are not letting it stop us as we get ready for our 8th annual Santa Cycle...This year, however a little different. We will be doing it virtually so you can join us from anywhere.
While we are unable to physically give gifts this year, we are planning to virtually cycle to go fetch donations from Santa in Lapland and bring them back to London to help save Christmas.
For the last 7 years we have cycled our 20 km route from Richmond, SW London to Shooting Star Children's Hospice in Hampton to deliver gifts to the incredible children there, who are suffering with life limiting illnesses.
This year they need us even more! Covid-19 has had a massive impact on the charity, forcing them to close the hospice in Hampton, leaving a number of families without the much needed and amazing support they provide. We hope to raise as much money as possible to support them.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO:
Instead of cycling to the hospice this year we will collectively be cycling (virtually) the total distance of 6138 km from London to Lapland in Finland to bring back Santa's donations to the hospice in time for Christmas.
You can cycle outdoors wherever you are based and ride any distance to help us hit our cumulative total distance
Join us for a virtual ride on Zwift at 9:00 AM on Sat 12th (circa 40-50km) or 10:00 AM (circa 20-30km) Sun the 13th December.
No matter what your current cycling ability is, join us to help raise funds for our incredible charity, Shooting Star Children's Hospice.
Simply commit to ride as far as you can and help to contribute towards the total distance we will be virtually cycling between Shooting Star Hospice in Hampton, UK to Lapland and back.
Join us on the 12th and 13th December on a road bike, a mountain bike, a Brompton or even a stationary indoor bike and help us reach our team target of 6138 km and raise £5,000 for charity.
100% of all money raised will go to Shooting Star Children’s Hospice.

WHAT CHARITY WILL BE BENEFITING?
Shooting Star Children's Hospice - Help support Children with life limiting illnesses.
Shooting Star Children’s Hospices is a lifeline to so many families and this has never been more apparent than during the current pandemic. COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on the delivery of their vital services and a huge impact on their fundraising income.
Their vital hospice service for those most vulnerable in the community is needed more than ever. Quite simply, without them, the families they support would have nowhere left to turn. The charity has had to adapt and find new and different ways to deliver care, remain connected with families and give them support when it’s most needed.
With only 10% of their funding from the government, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices relies on supporters’ generosity to continue to provide care and support, which is needed now more than ever.
WHO IS ORGANISING THE EVENT?
At Njinga Cycling Academy we are about more than just the bike. As a cycle training and coaching business, we have helped thousands of riders improve their cycling over the years. However, it's the incredible community we have created off the back of this that has been a big support in helping us raise thousands of pounds for those less fortunate.
For the last 7 years we have supported Shooting Star Hospice with an annual Santa ride to raise funds for their incredible children's hospice. However, right now Covid-19 has been particularly challenging for them, forcing them to close the hospice in Hampton and only provide end-of-life care and urgent or emergency respite, out of their Guildford hospice. We are desperate to help all the children and families who are impacted by this.
Please join us in supporting this incredibly worthy cause and help raise some life changing funds to allow Shooting Star Children's hospice to continue the inspiring work they do.
SIGN UP NOW and join us on our epic virtual charity cycle to help us save Christmas.
