We’re delighted to announce that JETRide, our charity bike ride is back for it’s second 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.
Although British Cycling are not currently allowing Sportives like JETRide to go ahead, they are monitoring the system closely and hope that they will be reintroduced towards the end of August, making it possible for JETRide to go ahead in September as planned.
The safety of our staff and participants is our top priority and we are currently planning ‘Covid-19’ safety measures which will be put into place on the day to keep everyone safe. Full details of these measures will be shared with participants in advance of the day, in line with the most up to date government guidelines.
Please note, if the event has to be cancelled due to Covid-19, you will be given the choice of a full refund (minus booking fee), deferring your place to JETRide 2021 or donating your entry fee to JET.
