    Lyme Disease Action has some charity places available if you didn't get a place in the ballot and would still like to take part. Email:
    Fundraising@LymeDiseaseAction.org.uk
    Or if you have a place already and would like to fundraise for LDA please email us about it!

    LDA is run entirely by volunteers, so anything you can do to help would be very welcome! The charity raises awareness about the disease by distributing leaflets and also by funding research.

    Lyme disease is spread by the bite of an infected tick, and if not recognised and treated early can lead to very debilitating symptoms. If you are bitten by a tick, see LDA's website for more information:

    Lyme Disease Action has charity places now available for 2023. Would you care to take part in this event and fundraise for a fantastic small charity, run entirely by volunteers, that punches way above its weight!
    Lyme disease is caused by the bite of an infected tick and if not treated early by a common antibiotic can cause very severe and life changing illness.

    Contact us for a place
    fundraising@lymediseaseaction.org.uk
    if you would like to help raise funds to aid research and also help with funding LDA to spread awareness with leaflet printing.
    Thank you.

    Your application for the places needs to be submitted on the console before the deadline:
    "all entries must be registered before 16:00 29 April 2022".

    If you have a place already then you can also fundraise for LDA
    https://ridelondon.enthuse.com/lymedisea­seaction/profile

    And make all that effort even more worth while!
    Thank you!

    Hello Josh012,

    That is why LDA exists - to raise awareness amongst the public and also the medical profession as well so that patients can get the treatment they need as soon as possible.

    Be tick aware - check for ticks if you sit on grass and remove them promptly and in the correct manner (see the website above) and then you are much less likely to get infected - not all ticks carry Lyme disease so if you are aware that is the key!

    So enjoy your cycling - LDA has places for the event because you don't have to be afraid of exercising and cycling - just be aware.
