The People’s Orchestra is proud to be supporting Awesome Rides. Out Of The Dark is a through-the-night cycling challenge created by cyclists, race directors and volunteers determined to raise money to increase the help available to men with mental health difficulties through their sport. There is one key aim – to prevent male suicide by making it possible for men to ask for help and find the right help, right when they need it.
On Saturday 10th November 2018, several hundred riders will ride through the night (from midnight to the early hours of 11th November) . The route will cover a 60-mile loop and pass West Bromwich Albion FC, Walsall FC, Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, Birmingham City FC, Aston Villa FC, Warwickshire Cricket Ground Edgbaston, and Alexander Stadium (Athletics).
Riders will pay an entry fee for the event and a separate pledged donation to our charities. All funds raised will go to our nominated charities The Samaritans, Mind and Kaleidoscope Plus. For more information about the ride and how you can take part, go to www.awesomerides.net
