Fundraise for MPN Voice – The Moonriders Cycle Series 2014
When you have an MPN you are encouraged to try as much as possible to keep fit and cycling is a fantastic way to keep fit. MPN Voice has registered with Action Challenge as a named Charity for fundraising on the Moonriders Cycle Series 2014.
Moon’opoly – Saturday 26 July 2014
Take part in this themed cycle ride through the Capital; around streets and stations made famous during your childhood. This overnight cycle starts in Southwark; a quick visit to the Old Kent Road and a trip North over Tower Bridge to Fenchurch Street Station, is only the start of our night time journey. This isn't your usual cycle though - we want you to 'take a chance' and win the final Community Chest!
Riders from all over the country will for the first time ever take to the streets of London and cycle to play the game in real life! Tackling a 50 mile figure of eight loop of the city you will cycle to tick off as many places and streets as possible whilst trying to win points as you ride.

Halloween - Friday 31 October 2014

When the moon casts shadows over Halloween, will you hold your nerve to cycle the creepy city. On a ride where all is not what it seems, Dracula himself will be on hand to say a few words before sending you on your way, through a maze of haunted underground tunnels before you finally emerge on the streets of London. The Friday Fright Night has begun!
The route follows a figure of 8 blood trail across the city - from East to West - returning to 'The Crypt' at the halfway point to dine on some very hot food at Hell's Kitchen. Rest stops are situated halfway through each loop, to take on food and drink supplied by a specialist catering team, and sort any repairs to bike and body!

DOING YOUR OWN THING - CYCLING
If you feel that the Moonriders are not for you then you can still cycle and fundraise for MPN Voice like Scott, who has challenged himself as part of his plan to keep fit, to enter as many organised bike rides as possible. Scott thought it would be good if he could use something he enjoys to help raise money for MPN Voice and has already signed up for the Tour de Tendring 60 mile ride on 11th May.
Scott found the Bike Events Site very helpful. Bike events have been running rides for over 20 years and are the UK’s biggest organiser of fundraising and recreational cycle rides, have a look at their site for a fundraising bike ride near you and cycle for MPN Voice.
