Sign up For Break The Cycle 2016

Sign up for Break The Cycle 2016 and take part in the Bristol Rugby Community Foundation's flagship annual event.

The annual event – which takes place on Sunday, 3 July 2016 – sees cyclists ride a 110-mile route between Ashton Gate and Gloucester’s Kingsholm.

Last year, over four-hundred riders took part in the Foundation’s flagship event, raising over £40,000 for the charity and its award-winning programmes.

Chief-Executive Ben Breeze said: “'We are excited to be launching Break The Cycle 2016 and to have Barclays on board again.  Now in its sixth year, Break The Cycle keeps going from strength to strength and we couldn't do it without the vital role that Barclays play in the event. 

“Last year, Barclays helped to run the event with their employees, volunteering their time before the event and on the day to ensure the event ran smoothly.  We are also delighted to confirm Genius, Get Buzzing and Qoroz as sponsors for the event and once again we will be joined by old friends and rivals, Gloucester Rugby. 

“In 2015, funds raised went straight towards our programmes, working with some of the most disaffected young people in Bristol.  The money raised from Break The Cycle is key to the future of our programmes so it essential that we grow the event again in 2016 in order for us to continue our support of young people.  Whether you're a keen cyclist or have never been on a bike, I urge you to sign up and take part."

Ken Stewart, Director of Professional Services at Barclays, added: "Being involved with Break The Cycle 2015 was a great experience for Barclays. It gave our staff the opportunity to volunteer their time by either getting on their bikes and taking part or helping at the event on the day, whilst knowing every penny raised from the event is going towards a great cause.  

“It is incredibly important that we have meaningful relationships with the charities that we work with and we really feel there is nothing more relevant at the moment than engaging young people in Bristol and supporting them to achieve their potential."
