Group Ride
Cure Parkinson’s “Raid Local” is a unique, celebrity-led endurance event over 3 stages on the 28th June. 137km total distance and 3,700m of elevation gain over the combined 3 stages: equivalent to Day 1 of the charity’s iconic Raid Alpine event (cancelled due to COVID-19). Mike Tindall MBE leads the identical ride on roads in the UK, and his celebrity friends lead the ride within Zwift..

Stages 2 and 3 will be led by rugby legends Wales’ Shane Williams and England’s Austin Healey. Riders will be able to ask the lead riders questions via the in-event messaging facility.

The sweeper for Stage 3 will be Iain Balshaw, MBE, member of England’s winning Rugby World Cup 2003 team.

The celebrity race leaders and sweepers will be joined during the Raid Stages by Amy Williams, MBE, Gold Medal skeleton, Winter Olympics 2010, by Lee Westwood, OBE, 7 Ryder Cup wins, and by Kirsty Gallacher, Sports Presenter and TV Personality.

Celebrity leaders will target a 2 - 2.5 w/kg pace for the first hour of each stage. Riders are encouraged to ride as a group during that time, and at their own pace for the remainder of the stage.

This is a fundraising event for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust, a leading charity funding research to slow, stop and reverse Parkinson’s. Covid-19 has forced the cancellation of most charity fundraising events since March for most UK charities.
