The Bagpuss Birthday Bikeathon

Calling cyclists of all ages and abilities! – ride with us to celebrate Bagpuss’ 50th birthday and raise funds for children’s hospice care!

How many laps can you manage of the iconic 1 mile Lydden Hill Race Circuit – can you reach the impressive milestone of 50 laps to honour our beloved mascot’s special day?

Secure your spot by booking through the form below to participate. Registration fees are £40 for a family of four, £15 per adult, and £10 for children under 16 and concessions. Spectators and non-participating adults accompanying children can attend for free. *Please note that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Once you’ve secured your spot, set up your fundraising page (details on how to do this will be sent to you). Whether you can conquer one lap or an impressive 50, every amount raised is greatly appreciated!

On the event day, there will be entertainment and enjoyable activities for both families and seasoned cyclists to participate in. Cyclists will also receive a special medal and goody bag after completing their laps!

Don’t miss out on the fun – book your spot now and let’s make Bagpuss’ 50th birthday celebration truly memorable!
