Stonehenge Cycle Challenge

The Stonehenge Cycle Challenge was a three day challenge fundraising event, sponsored by Craghoppers.

The Stonehenge Cycle Challenge, English Heritage's first challenge fundraising event, took place in September 2013 and raised over £23,000 for the Stonehenge Environmental Improvements Project. Starting at the Preseli Mountains in the Pembrokeshire National Park and ending inside the stone circle at Stonehenge with a celebratory glass of champagne, the challenge offered cycling enthusiasts a monumental ride of a lifetime.

Why Cycle Stonehenge?

The sponsored ride raised money for the English Heritage Foundation in support of a truly significant project, the Stonehenge Environmental Improvements Project.

Improvements included:

  • A new environmentally-sensitive visitor centre 1.5 miles away from the Stones at Airman's Corner
  • Removing the current car park and facilities at the stones and grassing over these areas
  • Closure of the A344 with the section from Stonehenge Bottom to Byway 12 reverting to grass, allowing Stonehenge to be reunited with its ancient processional way

Why not be part of our next challenge fundraising event, the Hadrian's Wall Hike?
