Great team spirit at Bike Oxford 24

On Sunday 23rd June, we saw our Oxford Health Charity team take on the 78, 56 and 26 mile routes at Bike Oxford, taking them through various parts of Oxford and the surrounding countryside. The team were in great spirits ahead of the ride and on their return - highlighting what a positive experience it was for them to be part of.

Libby, fundraising for the Positivity Pot Appeal, said -

'Bike Oxford was a brilliant experience - I loved having a goal to work towards, it raised money for good causes and it was great to meet other people in the trust from different areas.  It was so hot but a really fun challenge and wonderful to cycle through areas of Oxford that I hadn't been to before.  Thanks to Oxford Health Charity for all your wonderful support on the day.'

Pete, fundraising for Where the need is greatest, commented - 

'My thoughts are that Bike Oxford is always an iconic event with fabulous views and a tour of the city to boot.  Whether you're a novice or a seasoned cyclist, I would recommend giving it a go.  People have also been incredibly generous and it's been great to raise funds for the charity as a result.  Thank you to everyone who donated.  The weather was fabulous and the small OHFT team (Tom, Gareth, Emily, Karen, Libby, Jason and Ryan) made the most of every mile.  Hoping to see lots more staff next year.'

Tom, also fundraising for Where the need is greatest, said - 

'My thoughts of the bike ride is it is a perfect way to enjoy the beauty of Oxford and it's surrounding areas, with it being a perfect way to get fit and raise money ... especially when the weather is as nice as it was!  Will most definitely be back next year.'

The total for our team's combined fundraising currently stands at over £1000 which is a great achievement and one we hope to build on in 2025.

To all of our amazing cyclists, the Oxford Health Charity team would like to say -

'We are so proud of you all and so very grateful for your efforts. You each did brilliantly and the money you have raised will go a long way to supporting Oxford Health service users, carers and staff.  It was a wonderful Bike Oxford event for our charity and we are looking forward to next year. We hope to see many of you back again with us in 2025.'
