Buckinghamshire’s Biggest Charity Bike Ride is back for 2024

2023 Tour de Vale Charity Bike Ride

On Sunday 9 June the Bucks Radio Tour de Vale will be returning to Aylesbury. Organised by WheelPower since 2004, Buckinghamshire’s biggest charity bike has become a highlight on the local cycling calendar, as riders come together to turn pedal power in to vital funds for the Stoke Mandeville based charity.

There are three fantastic routes to choose from all starting and finishing on the famous track at the birthplace of the Paralympic Movement. The routes take the riders out into the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside and are supported by regular water stops, volunteer marshals, first aid points and support vehicles for your safety throughout.

Choose from 25, 75 and 110km routes and join riders of all ages and abilities in completing this fantastic charity bike ride. The 25km route is ideal for families, with all under 16’s and hand cyclists going free. The two longer routes go through Eythrope Park, Waddesdon and Quainton and are for keen individual cyclists, or club members who want something a little more challenging.

All cyclists will be rewarded with a well earned medal after crossing the Stoke Mandeville Stadium finish line, where you will find free massage tables, a barbecue and a bar so that you can recover and relax with your friends and family after the event.

The Tour de Vale is a unique ride and one that is loved by so many members of the local community here in Buckinghamshire. It is family friendly, inclusive and en-route you will discover a great atmosphere to help you along the way.

Eve Helyer, WheelPower Events & Community Fundraiser added, ‘Since our first ride in 2004 over £950,000 has been raised from our amazing Tour de Vale cyclists, supporting the life changing work of WheelPower both here in Bucks and across the UK. It is more than just a bike ride, and by taking part and cycling together you will be directly helping us to transform more disabled lives through movement, activity and sport. With the Paralympics around the corner we hope that you will join the celebrations in 2024 for the biggest and best charity bike ride yet!’
