Ride Out for Human Rights – Sunday 6 October

Do you enjoy cycling?
Want to know more about famous humanitarians and LGBTs?
Want to support the work of the Peter Tatchell Foundation?

If the answer is yes, then join us on 6 October for an easy, fun mystery bike ride around London, in aid of the human rights work of the Peter Tatchell Foundation.
The full length ride is 9 miles but you can opt for a shorter version if you wish. We have had to reduce the length because of road closures for the London Half Marathon. But you still get to see 7 very interesting landmarks.

The bike ride

Come join us with your friends or your family. The ride will take you around London’s most iconic landmarks on the way to discovering famous humanitarians and LGBTs. Yes, it’s a mystery bike ride. When you arrive at the start point, you’ll be given a route map and 7 guides to each of the landmarks, with a brief biography of the famous person associated with them. The idea is a ride with surprises. You only open the guide when you get to the landmark address – and then discover the famous humanitarian / LGBT person associated with that address.

A big plus: the ride is not timed, you can take the route, at your own leisure. So take your time and have fun. Enjoy.
