Do you like cycling? Do you love Bromptons or ever fancied riding one? Do you yearn for adventure in the sunny open air of the beautiful British countryside?

We are looking for 45 people to fundraise and cycle from Bath to Chickenshed (130 miles) on Bromptons as part of celebrations for our 45th birthday this year.

Join challenge leaders Will Butler-Adams (CEO, Brompton Bikes) and Josh Berger CBE (Chairman Emeritus, Chickenshed) in a friendly group of bike enthusiasts all on one mission – to reach Chickenshed HQ in Southgate, London!

As part of Team Chickenshed you will be directly supporting us to reach this goal.
