Event Description

Every two years HEAL organises its Cycle India charity bike ride. The sixth HEAL Cycle India will start on the 8th February in the historic city of Mysore and will culminate with a trip to HEAL Paradise Children’s Village on the 15th February.

The journey will involve 250 miles of cycling in India’s southwestern Karnataka state. Starting at Mysore (recently renamed Mysuru) and finishing at Mangalore. On completion we will travel to HEAL Paradise Village to spend time with the children and join in their annual HEAL day celebrations.

Support for the cycle trip and all accommodation is arranged by our regular trip organisers Kalypso Adventures.

Each participant is expected to raise a minimum £1,500 for HEAL, this money is to be paid to HEAL by the end of March 2018. A further £1,000 needs to be provided to cover their costs in India.

Contributions towards your minimum target of £1,500 can also be achieved through securing support for HEAL’s other sponsorship programmes such as sponsor a child; sponsor a meal or sponsor a teacher.

To secure a place on Cycle India you need to pay a non-refundable registration fee of £250. Subsequently, you will need to arrange your return flight to India and organise an entry visa. Advice on these matters can be sought from Mandy Renton (mandyrenton@btinternet.com).
