The RAF Association is recruiting cyclists for a fundraising challenge across Rutland to help support RAF veterans and serving personnel.

We will be staging RAFA Rides: Rutland on Saturday 15 June, and are looking for members of the public to sign up to either the 33 mile, 70 mile or 100 mileroute, with a view to raising more than £20,000.

The full day event, which begins and ends at Café Ventoux, on Wood Lane in Tugby, will pass through various villages in Rutland, with the longer routes also crossing into Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire.The event will start and finish at Café Ventoux in Tugby

Air Vice-Marshal Gary Waterfall, RAF Association ambassador and supporter of the event, said: “We’d love to get as many keen cyclists as we can to take part in this fun challenge through the rolling hills of Rutland and its surrounding counties.

“Last year we managed to raise more than £20,000, which went towards projects supporting members of the RAF family, and we’re aiming to raise even more this year.”

The longer routes, which includes picturesque views of Rutland Water and the Vale of Belvoir, are aimed at experienced cyclists, while the shorter 33 mile route is ideal for those new to cycling challenges.

All cyclists will receive a medal, as well as a beer or soft drink and a pulled pork roll (veggie option available) also at the finish line. A live band and other entertainment will also be provided at Café Ventoux, and food stations along the route will offer delicious refreshment to the riders throughout all routes.

The registration fee goes towards the cost of running our cycling sportive, so every penny you raise in sponsorship will go the RAF Association, which is committed to members of the RAF family and delivering help and support where it is needed.


For those of you with busy schedules, online fundraising is one of the quickest and easiest ways to raise money. By setting up a JustGiving page for example, you can let your friends and family know you are taking part in this cycling challenge, and ask them for their support. Perhaps you could ask them to donate a pound for every mile you cycle, raising £100 if you complete the longest route?
