Planning to take part in a cycling event and fundraise for us?

Once you've chosen your challenge let us know by filling in and sending back our Cycling registration form (Word, 244KB).

Once we receive your form we'll send you:

  • a cycling fundraising pack with lots of useful information and advice
  • your Parkinson's UK cycling top

We can also provide you with other fundraising materials, such as banners and collecting tins.

Choose your own challenge

Choose your own amazing adventure to a destination of your choice, on a date that suits you!

  • Dates: Over 130 departure dates each year
  • Locations: More than 25 destinations
  • Sponsorship options: Choose between minimum sponsorship: where you pay a deposit and raise a specific amount in sponsorship, or self-funder: where you personally pay the full challenge cost and then raise as much as you can.

We work with Discover Adventure and Charity Challenge to offer you a wide range of challenges - you can cycle, trek, try a water-based activity or a community challenge.

Whatever adventure you choose, you'll meet a diverse group of people and leave with great friends.

If you've already signed up for your challenge, please complete and return one of our online registration forms so we can support you.

You'll receive a fundraising pack, sponsorship forms and a T-shirt or cycling top. And we'll be there to support you every step of the way through your training and fundraising.

Choose your own walk

Go a step further for people with Parkinson’s and choose your own walk.

Creating a walk of your own is a brilliant way to have fun with your friends, family and colleagues.

It's also a fantastic opportunity to help find a cure and improve life for everyone affected by Parkinson's.

Whether it's a gentle stroll with a few friends or a hike up a mountain with a hundred others, whatever you raise helps us to continue our vital work!
