Ups n Downs Go Around The World
Proudly sponsored by
Sadly, our annual Riding for Ups N Downs cannot go ahead as planned this year due to Coronavirus. Instead, we are aiming to build a team of cyclists who will join together this summer to ride around the world in 10 days.
Whether you are out on the roads, on the MTB trails or at home on your rollers or turbo, we hope that you will join us over these 10 days and help us achieve this goal.
We have changed our event to enable full support of the government's current guidance re Coronavirus. We would encourage everyone to ensure that they follow any government guidance in relation to recreational activities including cycling.
We will start our epic journey on Friday the 17th of July from a virtual Earls Barton and we will be travelling around the globe over the next 10 days around the 52nd parallel, hoping that we cycle enough miles to get back to Earls Barton on Sunday the 26th of July.
We will go via Germany, Belarus, Ukraine, China, Russia, Alaska, British Columbia, Ontario, Ireland and Wales to name a few of the countries on our route.
