The Saints Big Bike Challenge is back – and it’s bigger than ever.

The annual event, which raises funds for the Saints Foundation, is offering a multitude of different cycling opportunities to get fit and earn money for one of the area’s most vibrant local charities.

Riders can opt to go for the full cycle, which is some 230 miles from Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium all the way down to St Mary’s over two days to take in the final game of the season. That eclipses the 196 miles cyclists produced last year when they pedalled from Stoke.

A range of distance options are available for those that would like to ride a smaller part of the route, but still want to get involved.

Last year’s event raised over £45,000, with all proceeds going towards supporting Saints Foundation’s worthwhile projects within the community. This year’s target is even bigger, just like the ride itself.

There is an information evening on Monday, February 5, and the event is supported by British Cycling, who will offer advice and training rides to help preparation.

The Foundation are more than happy to put on shorter rides for those that require them. If this is something that might interest you, please email to register your interest.
