East Coast Digital Programme's Ride the Route challenge

In 2022 the Programme Leadership at the East Coast Digital Programme proposed an annual charity challenge to bring the community together to deliver social value, demonstrating our ability to pull all organisations together to do collective good.

Since then, Ride the Route has raised over £100,000 for Railway Children!


This is the perfect event for individuals and teams alike!

Whether you are a seasoned cyclist, or a novice on the pedals, you can choose the full three-day challenge or take on a one-day ride all with like-minded people by your side!

This year marks the third ride, which sees us moving over to the West Coast Mainline and covering around 390km from Glasgow to Manchester.

All funds raised will go to Railway Children, providing protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.

What's included

We'll provide support vans - which will include lots of snacks! Plus medical support, daytime food, water and electrolytes, Peloton navigation leaders, route maps and GPX files for bike computers.

This event also hosts an annual gala dinner to celebrate the achievements of the riders as well as announce the route for the following years event. If you would like to attend the gala to see what Ride the Route all is about, please email our events team at
