Ride for Ukraine, Ride for its Heroes

When: 11 th – 12 th June 2016

Where: London to Lille via Dunkirk

Combining its efforts with British-Ukrainian Aid (Charity No: 1164472 –, the Ride for Ukraine aims to raise money for those affected by the ongoing war and humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. Cycling from London, 7 riders will ride over 200 miles to Lille, in time for Ukraine’s first game in Euro 2016 against Germany on Sunday 12th June. Many of those riding visited the regions presently affected by war during the UEFA 2012 championship, travelling through towns such as Horlivka, Kramatorsk and Slovyansk, spending considerable time in Donetsk and Mariupol. None of them could have envisaged how drastically different life would become for those they met, and what would happen to the areas they visited just four years after UEFA Championship was hosted by Ukraine and Poland.

The group of riders is made up of 5 third generation Ukrainians living in the UK; Ewhen & Peter Chymera, Stepan & Bohdan Luczka and Nick Favell, alongside two British friends keen to support Ukrainians affected by Russia’s invasion: Euan Holloway and Ben Mansfield.

All funds raised will go towards supporting British-Ukrainian Aids projects in the region. Donations can be made through the Ride for Ukraine Just Giving page Ukraine1
