Event Overview

The 250km challenge is set over two days.
Starting at ILE Leicester, with an overnight stop near Wallingford and finishing up at the Dewhurst factory in London!

This is set to be one of the Lift Industry’s most iconic challenges and definitely one that everyone in the Industry should try to tick off their list. This year we’ll be welcoming up to 160 riders of all ages and abilities who will take part in either a 2 day 250km or 1 day cycling challenge.

The 250km planned and marshalled route will include 2 water/rest points on day 1 and 2 water/rest points on day 2 which will allow you time to rest and take in some of the beautiful summer scenery.

  • The idyllic route is reasonably flat, with small climbs and speedy slopes.
  • There will be an overnight camping stop near Wallingford, which will include food, drink, toilet/shower facilities and a band for evening entertainment.
  • The Lift Industry Cycling Challenge will take place on 10th and 11th July 2021.

UK Lift Industry Charity

The UK Lift Industry Charity was set up to help the families of those people seriously or fatally injured whilst working on lifts during the initial period following the event. We believe assistance in covering those initial essential expenses provides much needed relief from unnecessary financial pressures whilst important matters are being dealt with.
