June 23 2013 sees the second Air Ambulance Bike Ride. The vital Kent, Surrey and Sussex air ambulance service receives no government or National Lottery funding and relies entirely on fundraising and donations, requiring an injection of £5million per year. The Double 100 bike ride is an important fundraising event which last year raised £12,000.
This year, the 100 mile or 100k route has been re-planned to include all the counties covered by the Air Ambulance service: Kent, Surrey and Sussex. Sponsorship from Howard Cundey Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, Asda, Warburtons and Wellbeing People will provide feeding stations along the way; all these companies operate in the air ambulance’s area and understand its great importance South East England.
The Double 100 is open to both regular and occasional cyclists. To register go to www.kssairambulance.org.uk/FundRaising/Double100CycleChallenge .
