Whether you ride a static bike, join a local event or take on the Prudential Ride London - Surrey 100 challenge, make a difference with every mile you cycle in 2019. 

Vision Aid Overseas, with support from ZEISS, is bringing back Cycling for Sight - the challenge that pushes you to your limits whilst raising vital funds to bring affordable eye care services and glasses to some of the world’s most isolated people and communities.

This year, you can choose to join us and cycle for sight in one of three ways, so everyone can take part, whatever your ability. Why not get your family, friends and work colleagues involved? 

1. DIY Cycling for Sight:

By choosing to do it yourself, you can still be part of Vision Aid Overseas’ team but will have full flexibility on how and when you Cycle for Sight in 2019.

Here are some ideas of how you can get involved:

  1. Join an organised cycling event near you to Cycle for Sight
  2. Ride your own route, wherever you like! Simply decide how many miles you want to cycle and complete this over a day, a week, a month or even the whole year
  3. Use a static bike and set your goal to complete in the time frame you decide


Registration Fee: £1

Fundraising Target: £5 per mile you ride - enough to provide an eye test and a pair of glasses overseas!

Please register below if you would like to take part in DIY Cycling for Sight and we will be in contact to hear your plans!
