What is the 7 in Seven Bike Ride
It’s an initiative to encourage the West Midlands community to dust down their bikes and get involved in the largest charity cycle event in our region, and raise many thousands for charity.
The bicycle is used far less in our city than any other European city. We want to change this, in effect ‘bring the Bike back to our City’ we want to inspire the community of the West Midlands to dust down their bikes and participate in the largest charity bike event of its kind here in Birmingham.
We want to remind the community how enjoyable cycling is, promote cycling as a sport, pass time and a suitable means of transport, reducing congestion on our roads, but also remind people the healthy lifestyle and wellbeing that cycling brings.
7inSeven is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. We want to inspire 7,000 people to collectively ride 77,777 miles (equivalent to 3 times around the world) all of which are recorded on our website by participating in our 7inSeven core event, corporate and community challenges and donating a mile at our ‘Harry Training Hubs’. Raise over £100,000 for West Midlands children’s cancer charity Help Harry Help Others.
7inSeven will take high profile West Midlands based cyclists from a variety of professional backgrounds to include TV, radio, sporting and corporate professionals from Zurich to Birmingham through seven countries over 700 miles in 7 days arriving back in Birmingham. Cyclists will have the option of participating all 7 days, last three days from Eindhoven (300 miles) or the last day from Coventry to Birmingham (30 miles).
A celebration event will be held in Centenary Square on our arrival back to Birmingham where a host of West Midlands based personalities will join us. We will have in place a ‘rolling traffic restriction’ on Broad Street, Birmingham, and a festival organised by Birmingham City Council celebrating our arrival and the bike in Birmingham. It is anticipated 200 riders will participate on the last day.
About “Help Harry Help Others”
The initiative will raise money for local charity HelpHarryHelpOthers (HHHO), the fund set up in the memory of Birmingham schoolboy Harry Moseley, who died of a brain tumour in October 2011 after fighting to raise money to help those suffering from brain cancer. Headed by Harry’s mother Georgie, HHHO is helping to achieve all the goals that Harry himself put in place. HelpHarryHelpOthers was chosen as this year’s charity because of Harry’s selfless and kind character, alongside his determination to achieve something great. Harry Moseley was someone that we can all take inspiration from. READ MORE ABOUT HHHO
