Around in June? Want to explore a bit of the Garden of England? Raise some money for a worthy cause? Want to just ride your bike?! Give Cycle4Heroes a consideration. Back after a 2 year hiatus because of you know what, sounds like a lovely day out on the bike!

Cycle4Heroes returns to Medway and North Kent on Armed Forces Day, Saturday 25th June 2022 with a new 75km route to raise funds for Help for Heroes. Sponsored by Gullands Solicitors and organised by Steve Craddock MBE, the cycle ride starts at the Royal Engineers Museum Chatham at 9am, then it will head out along the coast towards Faversham and return via the North Kent Downs.


Riders aged 16 upwards can now register and the entry fee is £30 and they are also asked to raise an additional £50 sponsorship. Corporate teams are also welcome to join in with a fee of £300 for up to six riders. There is also the chance for the highest individual fundraisers to win either a £700 credit to spend on cycling equipment curtesy of The Bike Warehouse, Gillingham or a comprehensive bike fit out worth £350 from Ben-efit Bikefit Studio.


Steve Craddock comments: “We are delighted to be back after a two year break due to Covid and we are pleased to have new sponsors on board to support us and help us raise vital funds for Help for Heroes. This is a cycle ride where no one gets left behind, we support everyone and make sure everyone gets around the route and finishes with a smile on their face. We are once again finishing late afternoon as part of the Armed Forces Day celebrations in Great Lines Park, Chatham.”


“I would urge anyone who likes to cycle or is new to cycling to come along and join in to help raise much needed funds for our wounded soldiers – those with physical ailments and/or mental scars from their service. Every single penny raised from this event goes to Help for Heroes.”


John Roberts, Managing Partner at Gullands Solicitors comments: “ We are very pleased to be supporting Steve and the Cycle4Heroes ride, it is a great event and brings together the cycling community – from amateurs to more experienced riders and those with disabilities both physical or hidden. This is a great ride for anyone new to cycling, especially those who have started over the last couple of years. Come along and experience the thrill of riding on some of the most picturesque parts of Medway and Kent.”
