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.
- 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
