In 2010, Christian and Niggy went out for a ride like we all do. But this time, they didn’t come home.
We organised the Team Townend Challenge in their memory, to bring friends, family and cyclists together to raise funds for our chosen charity, RoadPeace, who campaign for road safety and justice for victims of road collisions.
Every pound of the £70,000 raised to date has gone directly to RoadPeace.
Team Townend Challenge will back in April 2022.
Our fundraising target of £100,000 remains in place, it just might take a bit longer to get there. Find out how you can support Team Townend on our Fundraising page.

JOIN TEAM TOWNEND
Team Townend Challenge would not be possible without the amazing volunteers who give their time to bake cakes and make sandwiches, and the route marshals who keep everyone heading in the right direction.

Qualified first aiders
Event registration on the day
Support at Loweswater Village hall
Marshalling on the short, long and dirty double courses
