Cycle Vienna to Budapest, September 25-29 2019

This is the perfect challenge for those of you who enjoy cycling and want to challenge yourself to an adventure, while supporting a cause close to your heart.

Starting in Vienna, this route takes you from Austria to Hungary via Bratislava, Slovakia, finishing in the centre of Budapest. You will cycle through incredible scenery in three capital cities in three gorgeous European countries – in just one weekend! Follow the River Danube through quiet country roads, city cycle networks, challenging gravel riverside paths, and more.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Meet the Classic Challenge Tour Manager and UK Doctor who will accompany you on the whole excursion. Fly from London to Vienna then enjoy a cycling tour of Vienna in the afternoon.
Day 2: Cycle approximately 75 km from Vienna to Bratislava
Day 3: Cycle approximately 112 km from Bratislava to Komarno
Day 4: Cycle approximately 124 km from Komarno to Budapest
Day 5: Explore Budapest before afternoon flight back to London

This is an intense cycle, but with a year to prepare, you will be able to start training early and accomplish this knowing all the money you raise over the coming year will help to save and change lives of children in Darfur who have no other hope. Either sign up solo and make wonderful friends along the way, or get a group together and tackle this challenge as a team!  Group sizes range from 20-50 people so there will be room for everyone – if you sign up early enough of course!

To take part in this challenge there is a registration fee of £250 and a commitment to raise a minimum of £1750 in sponsorship for the desperate children and families Kids for Kids supports with your help in Darfur. Group flights, full medical support, an experienced Tour Manager, accommodation, and transfers will all be included in this cost.

If you have any questions about how to raise funds, please visit take a look at the fundraising ideas on our Get Involved page, or get in touch with us directly at contact@kidsforkids.org.uk.  We would be more than happy to send you promotional materials, and support your fundraising efforts!  Our supporters often find that holding an event to raise funds brings in more money than just simply asking for sponsorship from family and friends.  Why not host a quiz night and charge an entrance fee?!

This challenge is fully supported by Classic Challenges throughout the trip, and more information about how to sign up can be found on their website here.
