SOUTH COAST CHALLENGE

Friday 9th July – Sunday 11th July

Following the success of London to Monaco, our newest fundraising ride covers some of the best roads in the UK.  We will be riding through three national parks, two areas of outstanding natural beauty and some of the most iconic coastline in the UK.

The route begins at Hamble, on the Solent, and we ride through the New Forest, along the Jurassic coast, and over Dartmoor, over three days. The challenge is in support of BLUE’s UK projects, three of which we will be riding past en route, offering riders the opportunity to see ocean conservation in action.

South Coast Challenge

We will be passing:

Solent Oyster Restoration Project where BLUE has created oyster beds, which filter the water column, removing nitrogen, sequestering carbon, and providing habitats for hundreds of species;

Lyme Bay where BLUE has developed a win-win model that benefits both the marine environment and small-scale fishermen practicing low-impact, responsible fishing;

Plymouth Marine Park where BLUE has created the UK’s first marine national park

The ride is open to riders of all abilities. Whether you’re looking to challenge yourself in 2021, or you’re training for London to Monaco, you can secure your place on the ride with a 10% deposit. Visit the London to Monaco website for more information.
