We’re delighted to announce that JETRide, our charity bike ride is back for its third year. In the heartland of the Royal Air Force, RAF College Cranwell provides the imposing start and finish line for a fantastic day of cycling through the lanes and villages of Lincolnshire. JETRide, aims to challenge people to ride a demanding distance whilst raising funds to help us support more young people to be the best they can be.
The gentle countryside is ideal for those new to cycling, as well as providing tougher but enjoyable distances to more seasoned cyclists. There are tasty food stops en-route and, to finish the day, there will be a flypast by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (weather permitting).

We encourage you to sign up to this event and help raise some vital funds to enable JET to continue supporting young people both now and in the future. The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the lives of every child in the UK, many from already difficult backgrounds have missed four months of schooling and vital support. JET’s work is needed more than ever to raise young people up and inspire them to achieve. This year, there will be a suggested fundraising target of £100 which will go directly to helping the Jon Egging Trust. Although this may seem daunting at first, we will give you support along the way to make sure you smash your target.
If you would like to ride as a team, please appoint a team leader who will be able to register and create a team account. They will be allocated a password to give to team members to sign up with.
Details of the routes will be available on the website to download in advance of the event.
We are currently seeking sponsorship for JETRide, please contact Ruth on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information.
