World AIDS Day Bike Ride

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

It's World Aids Day today and this is Southwark Cyclists' ride for The Food Chain - a London charity whose volunteers provide home delivered meals and other nutrition services to men, women and children who are very ill as a result of an HIV-related illness.

The organisers will take a voluntary donation of at least GBP 10 off you at the start of the ride (GBP 5 if unwaged). Every penny gets to The Food Chain. GBP 10 is more than enough to pay for 3 people's two-course lunch and a light evening meal.

"The ride? After a buy-your-own flute of something at Europe's longest champagne bar, we'll get to St Pancras Church on Euston Road for midday and the Cara Trust's free concert starring the sparkling London Gay Men's Chorus. Then we'll ride some more and head back to the Southwark Needle start via St Andrews Chapel in Southwark Cathedral that has commemorated all with HIV and AIDS since 1991. The ride ends there, optional drink after at a surprise venue.

"There'll be Dr Bike at the start if yours needs a tweak, and trainer/mechanics on the ride too thanks to Southwark's very own Cycle Training UK.

"A fun and sociable ride that's paced for all. No booking and very open, as ever, to all."
