The D-Day Cycle Ride 2019 commemorates the cycling soldiers of the Second World War and their contribution to D-Day on 6 June 1944 and to the following Battle of Normandy.
The itinerary of the Ride includes the beaches where the landings occurred and some key inland locations that were the first to be liberated. When joining the ride you can choose between a distance of either 50 or 80 miles per day.
The D-Day Cycle Ride is supported by the SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, formerly known as Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association. The SSAFA is a UK charity providing lifelong support to serving men and women and veterans from the British Armed Forces and their families or dependents.
The D-Day Cycle Ride is a fundraising event – all raised money goes for armed forces’ families.
