Ride to Wilderness Charity Fundraiser
This year by signing up to cycle to Wilderness you won’t only be doing fantastic things for your body, the environment and making some new festival buddies, you’ll be able to directly help raise funds to support the important work of Child.org.
How it works
The ride itself will be a fully guided and supported one day 80 miles (120km) challenging ride from West London, Richmond to Wilderness Festival.
Our experienced guides will plan and lead the ride, chatting with and encouraging you, whilst you focus on enjoying the scenery. Red Fox champions our capacity to get all riders to the end of an event like this, so if the distance is a little daunting, understand our guides will be there to support you the whole way.
Our route takes in the glorious Thames-side towns of Royal Windsor, Eton and Marlow, Oxford with its famous colleges, striking architecture and charming Cotswold villages.
Our Red Fox support van will journey every mile with us. We’ll carry your festival kit, snacks and water will always be close at hand and the Support team will deal with mechanicals swiftly and professionally.
What you’ll be supporting
We’re supporting Wilderness' huge ambition to raise £5000 for Child.Org on this year’s ride to the festival. Your fundraising for Ride to Wilderness will help Child.org support more mums and babies through their Team Mum pregnancy support groups. These groups provide life-saving health advice for pregnant women and encourage them to use maternal and newborn health services during pregnancy, delivery and the postnatal period, ultimately making pregnancies safer for women, as well as increasing the chances of survival for their newborns.
How the fundraising works
Once you’ve signed-up to this year's Ride to Wilderness, you’ll receive a confirmation email with information on how to set up a fundraising page. You’ll be provided a template which you can personalise as much or as little as you wish. You can then share your personal fundraising page around your family, friends and colleagues and comment your thanks when they donate. To create a little bit of healthy competition, on the main fundraising page you’ll be able to compare your fundraising efforts with other riders.
