Velo Birmingham 2020 Challenge

Pedal over to Birmingham this June for one of the best cycling challenges of the summer, Velo Birmingham!

Peddle along with Team Orange on this 100-mile course that takes challengers through the streets of Birmingham and through the West Midlands on closed car-free roads. You’ll zip from the starting line with 18,000 other riders on your tail, as you take off through the city centre.

You’ll work up a sweat on this challenge, no doubt, but you’ll also be working your way through the stunning countryside on your circuit to the finish line. Beautiful greenery, cheering crowds and a challenge like no other awaits you when you sign up for Velo Birmingham 2020!

Are you ready to cycle for charity?

When you sign up for Velo Birmingham, every mile you cycle will all be in aid of our Emergency Response appeal. Push yourself to the limit and raise money to protect hundreds of families from the effects of war, famine and natural disasters.

It’s only £25 to register for this challenging ride, and once you’re all signed up you can start fundraising to meet your £500 sponsorship target! Team Orange is here to support you every step of the way, in any way we can, cheering you on and sending you off at the starting line!

A Cause Worth Cycling For

Every mile you cycle will make a difference to those most vulnerable around the world.

Our Emergency Response teams are experts at quickly, efficiently and compassionately helping people survive war, famine and natural disasters. The funds you raise are absolutely critical in our ability to act fast during a crisis.

Our teams are currently providing support in:

  • Syria, where 60% of hospitals are closed and 70% of all people need urgent humanitarian aid.
  • Lebanon and Turkey, where Syrian refugees are battling to survive.
  • Yemen, which is experiencing the worst famine the world has seen in this century.
  • Palestine, including Gaza, where people are living amongst terrifying conflict.
  • Bangladesh, where Rohingyan refugees who have fled persecution need support.
  • Indonesia, helping re-build homes and lives after a powerful earthquake hit Lombok.
  • Areas affected by the famine in East Africa, such as Somalia, South Sudan and Kenya.
  • Mozambique, where 1.8 million people have been devastated by Cyclone Idai.

Thanks to our Emergency Response, we’ve protected 1.7 million lives from danger in the last 10 years, Alhamdulillah! But the sad reality is that millions more people urgently need our help. You can provide that help, with every mile of your Cycle.
