In memory of Danny Johnston WWTW is honoured to be working alongside Danny’s family to raise awareness of mental health and to provide a meaningful legacy in his memory.

Join us on 1st September at St Swithun’s School in Winchester to cycle or walk in support of veterans struggling to adapt to life post military service. 

Ride for Danny                           

This one-day cycling challenge promises to be a tough, but fun, day out on the bike as cyclists take on the famous chalk hills from Winchester to Queen Elizabeth II Country Park and back, alongside inspirational wounded servicemen and women - including some who have been part of the charity’s expedition teams to the North Pole, South Pole and Everest.

                                

Riders taking on the Double Downs challenge will raise funds to support the UK’s most at-risk veterans, suffering from physical, mental and social challenges, to reintegrate into society and lead productive and fulfilling lives.

 

Our challenging route utilises the South Downs Way and surrounding lanes and tracks.

 

Short Course - 33 miles, 3080ft ascent

Medium Course - 47 miles, 4330ft ascent

Long Course - 64 miles, 6185ft ascent

 

You can Ride for Danny on a MTB, eMTB, CX bike, gravel bike - the course is not suitable for road bikes.

                                

The Ride for Danny is a self-supported ride. We will issue the .gpx file in advance of the ride.

On the day, we will ride in small groups, so no rider rides alone.

                           

Get involved! Ride 33,47 or 64 miles off-road in support of our wounded veterans...

 

Entry to the Walk for Danny is FREE
