Damon Hill OBE rides out with Magnificent Seven halow250

Over 100 cyclists ride the halow250 fundraising event for Surrey young people with a learning disability

Guildford charity, the halow project‘s halow250 bike ride nicknamed the Magnificent Seven has once again sold out!

Over 100 cyclists will take part in the 250 mile charity bike ride from London to Guildford via Northern France which begins on 4th may 2018.

halow patron and co-founder, Damon Hill OBE commented:

“This is an extremely important fundraising event for halow and its now in its seventh year. I will be leading a team of parents of young people we support, some of whom have done this ride every year – Also a core of corporate teams and riders who come back every year as well as new recruits to the cause. I can confirm that this is a challenging ride and totally unique experience on the cycle event front. The team spirit and camaraderie is fantastic and I’m confident everyone will have a wonderful experience whilst raising funds for a worthwhile cause. Disability causes are so underfunded at the moment that we need everyone’s support to reach our target. Please check out the fundraising page!”
