Ride India to return in 2019 following success of inaugural event

Railway Children has confirmed its Ride India challenge is set to return next year.

The international charity, which helps thousands of children who run away or are forced to leave homes across the UK, India and East Africa each year, launched the new fundraiser in 2018, raising £85,000 in the process.

Next year, another team of cyclists will take part in an epic 450km cycle in India’s Golden Triangle.

The six-day adventure will begin in the packed bazaars of Delhi and head to Agra before cycling to the famous Pink City of Jaipur between February 22 and March 3.

Cyclists will not only get to take in the Taj Mahal, a tiger sanctuary and the historic towns and villages of Rajasthan en route, but they’ll also get the chance to meet the children whose lives Railway Children is changing.

Events manager Katie Mason said: “Our first ever Ride India event this year was a great success and we can’t wait to do it all again in 2019.

“The challenge raised an incredible £85,000 which has had a life-changing impact on the lives of the vulnerable children we work with. But there are so many more children that need our help so we’re looking forward to getting a team of adventurers together, getting back in the saddle and raising even more for Railway Children with Ride India 2019.”
