Castles Bike Ride - 1st Sunday in June

Postal Entries are NOW open . 

On line entries  NOW open

The Swindon Castles Bike Ride, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, is now in it's 23rd year, the event starts once again from the Croft Sports Centre in Swindon and takes riders on a leisurely, but sometimes challenging route along some of England's oldest roads with breathtaking views around the Wiltshire countryside.

And this year for the third time we are offering a 24 mile challenge for Road Bike Riders!!!!!!

As always, the Castles Bike Ride is all about raising money for people living with cancer. The event is organised and run entirely by volunteers, so all the money that is raised can go directly to those who need it.

This year we have the following types of entry:

Standard Adult Entry £15

Standard Child (under 16) Entry £3

Family Entry (2 Adults + 1 or more children) £30

Entries in these categories can be made on-line or by post.  (on-line entry is not curently open)

Team Entry.   To encourage teams we are offering a 10% discount for teams of 8 or more participants.  To qualify for this discount teams must register by post.

Sponsorship or donation

This event is organised to benefit Macmillan Cancer Support, we therefore request that as many participants as possible get themselves sponsored for this charity.  If you feel you are unable to get sponsored perhaps you would consider making a small donation yourself.

Gift Aid:  So long as an individual who is sponsoring you pays income tax equal to an amount of 25% of the donation, it can be Gift Aided which means Macmillan can claim an extra 25% with no further cost to the donor.


We hope to have a Just Giving link soon.  Old style Paper sponsorship forms are still available.   Remember Mitchel Cycles donate a brand new bike to the participant who raises the most sponsorship money.

Could you Volunteer for us? 

We need some special people to help us run this event.  No great skills needed just the desire to help us run and safe and fun event.  Please go to the Volunteering pages to find out more.
