Unfortunately, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel our annual Mix96 Tour de Vale Charity Bike Ride due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic over the past few months.
But still we ride!
We are however pleased to be launching ‘The Alternative Mix96 Tour de Vale’ and hope that you will continue to support WheelPower by completing one of our Tour de Vale routes during the month of September.
Buckinghamshire’s biggest and best charity bike ride takes place throughout September 2020. Whether you cycle on your own or with friends & family (social distancing of course) you can select either our 25k, 65k or 110k route.
We do hope you will still take part, get fit and raise vital funds to help us continue our work during these difficult times.
Why take part?
Organised by WheelPower, the Mix96 Tour de Vale Bike Ride has raised funds which have transformed the lives of thousands of disabled children and newly injured adults in the last 16 years.
As your local charity, WheelPower relies on the tremendous support of fundraisers and the local community. Every pound raised by you will help us continue our vital work at Stoke Mandeville Stadium and beyond.
Route 2: 65k (40 miles)
Route 3: 110k (68 miles)
Or if you live further afield, why not challenge yourself to complete an ‘Alternative Mix 96 Tour de Vale’ and set a distance and a route that suits you. Beat your PB, ride with your family and friends (social distancing of course) or pedal from the comfort of your home. It’s entirely up to you! Choose your own route, set a challenging distance target, and set off wherever you want and whenever you want. You’ll have the entire month of September to cover your chosen distance and you can do so in however many rides you like, it’s ‘Your Tour!’
We ask each and every rider of the Mix96 Tour de Vale Bike Ride to support WheelPower by raising sponsorship for the charity. To help beat the fantastic efforts of 2019 which raised over £56,000, please ask family, friends and work colleagues (many companies will match their employee’s fundraising), your local shop, gym or anyone else you can think of.
How much does it cost to enter?
Entry is FREE and if you raise over £10, you will be sent a medal!
There will be prizes for the highest individual adult , junior and team fundraisers.
Note that all cyclists must wear a cycle helmet.
We recommend that children should be confident cycling on roads and have taken a cycling proficiency test.
