Fundraising challenge starts on Wednesday!

With just one day to go until the Pink Link 'Pedal for Pounds 5' fundraising bike ride gets under way, the route the cyclists will take has today been revealed.

Using specialist site MapMyRide, all four days of the route can now be viewed online.

Day one, which will see the cyclists depart the Emirates Stadium and cover almost 90 kilometres before the first overnight stop at Cambridge, is available HERE.

Day two will see the cyclists pedal from Cambridge to Leicester, is available HERE.

The third day is the longest on the ride, with cyclists covering over 126 kilometres and climbing over 750 feet between Leicester and Doncaster - check it out HERE.

The final day will see cyclists arrive at PPG Canalside from Doncaster in preparation for their lap of honour at the John Smith's Stadium - click HERE for details.
Almost 300 cyclists are schedule to take part – including Chairman Dean Hoyle and Ambassador Andy Booth – in the 250 mile ‘Chapman Trail’ ride from Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium to the John Smith’s Stadium.
The ride, which is in aid of the ‘Keep It Up’ Campaign, will begin early morning on Wednesday 23 April 2014 with cyclists getting coaches from PPG Canalside down to London. Participants will then set off around midday from the Emirates Stadium, cycling to Cambridge, Leicester and Doncaster over three and a half days in time for the last home game of the season against Leicester City on Saturday 26 April 2014.

The Club’s previous four bike rides have contributed over £600,000 to the £980,000 raised for the campaign so far since its inception in 2009.
