Cycle the coast to Rio
- 14 September 2017 to 24 Sep 2017
We have teamed up with international challenge providers Discover Adventure to offer you this once in a lifetime opportunity to cycle the Brazilian coastline to Rio De Janeiro with fellow cat lovers, while also raising vital funds for Cats Protection.
Undulating roads take us past hidden bays and fishing villages, with beautiful sandy beaches and blue sea to one side and green mountain slopes thick with rainforest to the other. It is one of the most scenic cycling destinations you could hope for without climbing mountains! Although the hills we encounter are fairly gentle, we have some long hot days in the saddle, and will be glad to reach Paraty, a beautiful, small town tucked away at the end of the historic Gold Trail. After time to enjoy this little gem, we head to Rio, the most famous city in South America, where we have time to celebrate and explore.
There is a non-refundable, £499 registration fee payable to join the event; this is required in full on signing up to the challenge.
We then ask you to pledge to raise a minimum of £4,450 by 1 July 2017. You are able to nominate a local branch or centre to support throughout your fundraising if you wish. While this may sound like a daunting amount we have ensured you have plenty of time to raise the funds and also have put together a very robust pack of resources to help you. Coupled with this you will receive dedicated support and guidance from our Events team.
We understand the commitment, courage and thought that goes into participating in a challenge event on behalf of Cats Protection and promise we will do our very best to give you all the help and support you need to have a successful challenge and raise lots of much needed funds to help us care for cats and kittens.
