MapAction invites you to join its Chiltern Challenge bike ride between 6-8 July 2012. It is looking for fun and friendly people to cycle 170 miles around the beautiful Chiltern countryside. The aim is to enjoy yourself, meet lovely new people and raise lots of money for MapAction’s emergency mapping service.
It's being dubbed a “challenge” not because it’ll push you to within an inch of your life (you cycle at your own pace), but because participants are being challenged to contribute to an overall fundraising target of £10,000 in celebration of MapAction’s 10 years of disaster mapping.
"MapAction is a unique British charity that uses geographic information to save lives in humanitarian crises around the world. Raising money for them is always great fun, not only because of the great activities MapAction lines up that are worthwhile things to do, but because it is also such a friendly and supportive team. I'd love to see members of the geocommunity get involved. It will be a terrific outing!" said Chris Holcroft, AGI Director & CEO.
So if you’re looking for a fun and worthwhile way to enjoy the British countryside this summer, look no further than www.mapaction.org/bike.
