Earth Wind & Tyre Charity Cycle Event

 EWT16

 

In celebration of the renewable energy industry, 51 daring cyclists set out at 8:30am on Saturday 25 June for Renewable World’s second and epic 200-mile charity ride, Earth Wind & Tyre.

This challenging two-day ride started in Durham and finished on the iconic Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Riders endured leg-testing climbs through some of the most beautiful and challenging landscape that the UK has to offer. The route passed 10 onshore wind farms, including one of the largest in the UK, Fallago Rig.

 

Fundraising has been an integral part of the event, with each participant aiming to raise at least £500 for Renewable World - a charity committed to tackling poverty through renewable energy. Renewable World’s projects bring clean energy to power-poor communities in Kenya, Nepal, Bangladesh and Nicaragua. Access to affordable and reliable energy services is critical in empowering people in these areas to lift themselves out of poverty. This energy helps to keep homes smoke-free, raise people’s incomes, create time for education and improve health.

 

“Earth Wind & Tyre is a fantastic event and we are incredibly grateful to all riders whom have taken part this year. They have used the energy in their legs, lungs and hearts to pedal 200 miles and help power people out of poverty.” Marie Hounslow, Fundraising Manager at Renewable World.
