Where: Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire
Join us for the annual PIP Mountain Bike Challenge!
Whether you’re a keen cyclist looking to beat your personal best or are looking to challenge yourself in your first ride, The Mountain Bike Challenge is for you.
Professional Mountain Bike Timing from TimeLaps means that you can keep a record of how you’ve done to share with friends and for future rides. Bike rentals are available if you need, to make it easier to take part.
The event is great for individual riders or you can enter a team. We ask that each rider raises a minimum of £350 which can either be paid in full or fundraised.
Each race participant will receive a free PIP MBC T-shirt, a PIP fundraising pack and a tasty BBQ with great beer after the event from local brewery Lovibonds!
If you’d like to get involved as a sponsor or volunteer please Email Danielle for more details or call 020 8960 4004.
Watch the highlights from 2017!
We need 50+ lovely volunteers to help the MBC run smoothly. We need stewards to man the route and keep everyone safe and going in the right direction, but also really could use a hand in setting up, prepping for the BBQ and taking down again. Would you be able to help? Get in touch!

More about the event
It kicks off at Lovibonds brewery and the ride winds through the Chilterns before finishing along the Thames. It’s a challenging but achievable route which has something for everyone – single track, climbs and, of course, wonderful scenery.
By taking part in this perfect day out, you can help to raise the funds we need to continue our work supporting adults with learning disabilities to achieve their potential.
This picture of a mountain biker is a great example of the work you’ll be supporting by raising vital funds for PIP. It was created by one of our students, Tom, during an art session . By encouraging individuals with learning disabilities to express themselves creatively, we help them improve their confidence, develop their skills and contribute to their local community. Watch these videos to get an even better idea of the impact PIP has and the lives of those we support.
