Testimonials

“Thank you so much for an absolutely totally awesome and fab night last Saturday. I had a complete blast and loved every moment of it. The route was so well planned out and really fun to ride. The volunteers were awesome and happy and friendly. Fortunately I didn't need the ride angels or mechanics but it was reassuring to know that they were there. I cycled with 6 of my cycling buddies that I met in India group 1 and we've just all come back from Cuba Group 4. They are friends for life and it is because of AFC that I've met these amazing women. We've already enrolled for next year and the fundraising has started!”

“I want to congratulate you all for putting together and hosting an incredible event. The night was amazing. I have experienced challenges with AFC abroad but it was an occasion that close friends and family could get together and raise money for such important causes. Alongside that it gave me an opportunity to show the incredible, professional organisation you are. We had so much fun but felt completely safe at all times, my friends were very impressed and now having experienced your brilliance will now spread the word to their families, friends and colleagues and so on and so on.... From the moment of registering for the event you made sure everyone had the most detailed information, the venue and course were superb. Once on the ride we experienced nothing but camaraderie and encouragement from fellow cyclists and more astonishing the local people particularly in the centre of London which, alongside the bright lights was an experience not to be missed. A HUGE thank you too to the marvellous marshals who remained cheerful and helpful throughout the night even at 4.30am!! The same to be said for everyone at the drink stations, not one cross word just delightful and cheery with the supply of so much food and drinks which was overly generous and very much appreciated. So thank you all for giving us the opportunity to take part in a truly incredible event. You deserve to be very, very proud. Here's to the next one”

“A HUGE thank you for making this year's event so brilliant. I now feel empowered with the knowledge that my body can cope with much bigger challenges than I'd realised”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the event, we managed to raise a significant amount for three very deserving charities and I have gone from an occasional cyclist to a keen leisure cyclist.  If I don't go out on my bike at the weekend I notice it during the following week and I have lost 2 1/2 stone into the bargain.  A good result all around! I would definitely recommend this event to others and plan to do it again another year”

“Just wanted to say thank you for such an amazing event. Having struggled in Kenya, trained harder, then struggled even more in Cuba I have now found the event for me! I did worry at the start as I ended up at the back but once I got going was ok so on a personal level  finally I've achieved it, I've completed a ride! Registered and looking forward to next year already!”
