Get ready to Bike for Books

This is a big announcement: we’re on the look-out for cyclists, and we need your help! You don’t have to be super-fit or a lycra biker or anything…we only ask that you’re serious about making a difference.

In September last year a team of intrepid, cycling Book Aid International supporters did something amazing. They set off from Guildford in Surrey and pedalled all the way to our offices in Camberwell, south London.

That was the first ever Bike for Books. We were amazed at how successful it was. So now we’re doing Bike for Books again this year. And, being an ambitious little charity, we want to do even better this year.

We’d like to get a team of 100 cyclists together for this year’s Bike for Books – double the number of riders we had before. This year’s ride will set off at 9am on September 4th from Camberwell and go into the Sussex countryside, past the home of Rudyard Kipling, and end at around 5pm in the village of Burwash. More details about the route, sponsorship and treats for our riders can be found over here and on the Bike for Books event page on Facebook.

Do you fancy it? Or do you know someone who might be interested? Let us know!

  1. Hi people, awesome project! We, a group of librarians have this thing called Cycling for libraries and we will ride 650km from Copenhagen, Denmark to Berlin, Germany, and our start is next week. Our event is an unconference-type professional event, and of course advocacy and PR-related too. We are about 90 people on this journey, from all over Europe, Russia, Canada, USA and Australia too.

    I’m really happy to see your project which i heard about through people on Twitter. Maybe we can arrange something together sometime 🙂 Cheers!
