  • #TOO500 is a 5 day event consisting of a century ride each day between June 12-16 2019. Visiting 6 of the countries top Children's Hospitals in order to raise money to fund first of a kind innovation projects and also to act as a catalyst for change.

    The event has been set up by Oxfordshire based children's charity Thinking of Oscar http://www.thinkingofoscar.com. The charity is named after Oscar Cole (my son) who died very unexpectedly in June 2014. June 2019 will mark 5 years since his death and in that time we have come to realise that child health lacks both funding and focus on a global scale. Our aim is to raise £500,000, by setting up what we hope will be an iconic cycling challenge.

    The ride:

    DAY 1 - Oxford Children's Hospital to Stafford (168 km / 104 Miles) via Birmingham Children's Hospital.
    DAY 2 - Stafford to Salford (176 km / 109 Miles) via Alder Hey Children's Hospital (Liverpool).
    DAY 3 - Salford to Melton Mobury (172 km / 107 Miles) via Manchester Children's Hospital before heading out over the Peak District to the Sheffield Children's Hospital.
    DAY 4 - Melton Mobury to Potters Bar (172 km / 107 Miles).
    DAY 5 - Potters Bar to Blenheim Palace (164 km / 102 Miles) via Great Ormond Street Hospital. Those just riding day 5, the ride will commence at the London Olympic Park.

    To register or find out more, please visit http://www.too500.co.uk. One day riders can register for as little as £50. To do the full 5 day ride it will cost £560 which includes accommodation and meals (you just have to bring your own transportation) Minimum fundraising does apply.
