Event details

Porto to Madrid Cycle

This October, Team Nomura will transform the lives of disabled children by pushing themselves to the limit and cycling from Porto to Madrid in support of Whizz-Kidz .

In three days the team will cover the mammoth distance of 580km, climb ~8,000m, and experience the varying geographies of Portugal and Spain.

Day 1: Porto City through the Duoro Valley to Vila Nova de Foz Coa (200km – 3,500m)
Day 2: Into Salamanca (160km 2,300m)
Day 3: Into Madrid, crossing the Majada Honda high pass at 1446m, and the Puerto de la Cruz Verde (210km, 2,500m)

This year 40 riders will be taking part so team Nomura is aiming to raise £30,000, which is enough to enable Whizz-Kidz to provide life-changing wheelchairs and mobility equipment to 8 children and young people in desperate need, giving them vital freedom, independence and opportunity to build the bright futures they deserve.

100% of the funds raised from the Porto to Madrid cycle will help to transform the lives of young disabled children by funding vital mobility equipment and mobile community services.

Thank you for any donations, we really appreciate your support!
