The White Horse (Mince Pies) Cycle Challenge

For nearly 20 years, Cycling UK Wantage has organised a festive fund-raising event supporting Whizz-Kidz, the children’s mobility charity: the Annual Mince Pie Ride to White Horse Hill. Sadly this year, the normal arrangements will not be possible, but the urge to challenge ourselves before Christmas and support Whizz-Kidz remains. So, we are pleased to present the White Horse Cycle Challenge:

We challenge individual riders to climb the great Hill at a time of their choosing between 28 November and 13 December (on their own, in a household group or with one friend or small group in line with social distancing guidelines in place at the time), take a selfie or photo at the top for proof, get extra respect for taking their own mince pie up there and raise money for Whizz-Kids. Our target is to see 100 riders complete the challenge.

We have set up a donations page, here:

and would welcome donations to support the efforts of all riders, whether from riders themselves, their family or friends.

We ask participants to post their photos on the club Facebook page at:

or to send by email to:

This address can also be used for enquires about the event.

Take care, keep safe and enjoy the challenge!
