Fancy losing some weight and getting fit before Easter and eating all those eggs?


As part of the RAF100 Celebration day, the organisers are planning to run a 100km charity cycle ride to raise money for donation to the official RAF100 charities. The plan is for the ride to take place during the morning of Saturday 14 Apr 18 and for the finish to coincide with the start of the main RAF100 Celebration event at the Pungo Military Aviation Museum. Further details are as follows:

Route: Starting and finishing at the Museum, the route will comprise 100km of relatively flat terrain along minor roads. All main highways will be avoided.

Time: Aiming to commence at 0700L and to cross the finish line at 1200L (i.e. 5 hrs at an average pace of 12 mph – should be a breeze – unless there’s one blowing in our face!!)

Number: Limited to 12 riders. The aim will be to ride as a group. Although we will plan to run a number of training rides beforehand for those that wish to participate, the route follows mostly quiet country lanes and is aimed at intermediate/experienced cyclists with a level of fitness and ability to match.

Equipment: Riders will be expected to provide their own suitable road bike (or alternative if you are a seasoned rider and happy with the planned pace?). It is planned that a team shirt will be issued to each participant.

Further details will be provided in due course and we currently have 6 riders signed up who have been involved in the initial planning stages (RAF and RN). Therefore, we are currently looking for another 6 riders who are interested in participating in this event. We will also be looking for 1-2 volunteers to drive a support vehicle.


If you would like to participate in this event, please email  jon.millington@act.nato.int by COP Wed 14 Feb 18. All responses will be treated on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
