100 miles for 100’s of smiles

116% Raised
As some of you may or may not know our son Thomas has Down Syndrome. We made the big decision to move  to Birmingham in June 2017. Julieanne found this local Down syndrome group. Since joining them she has made some friends for life, to share the ups & downs or having a child with downs. This group gives parents everything they need from sharing the laughter & tears or a general moan. They arrange the days out you so desperately need together, the coffee mornings where you’re not judged and can be yourself. I’d like to raise some money by riding the 100 mile bike ride around Birmingham & Midlands to say a thank you for this and everything else they have offered us now & for the future for Tom & us.

About Velo Birmingham & Midlands

Vélo Birmingham & Midlands is a epic 100 mile closed road route that will take 17,000 riders on an unforgettable journey through the West Midlands, including two major city centres! In the heart of Birmingham City Centre, the route will take riders through the heart of the 2021 Capital of Culture – Coventry – where riders will cycle on the cobbled roads surrounding the historic Coventry Cathedral. In between these two epic city centre adventures, riders will enjoy riding through Solihull, Warwickshire, Dudley and Sandwell where they will encounter stunning countryside, panoramic views, picturesque villages and iconic climbs… not to mention the tens of thousands of local residents lining the streets to cheer the riders on!
