OYB 2020 Postponed! New date: Sun 20th September

Due to the unique global situation, we have decided to postpone On Your Bike from March 29th to Sunday 20th September.

The registrations of all those who have already entered the March ride will be held over and we will announce new information as soon as we can, so please check this web page for updates.

One of our 3 chosen charities this year is Sonning Common First Responders. Given the enormous pressure on our emergency services at this time, and their reliance on voluntary donations, we have decided that 50% of the money we have received so far from entries, will be paid out to our First Responders, and 50% to Greenshoots.

The money we have received from sponsors will be retained to support the preparations for the re-scheduled ride and together with other receipts will be shared out after the ride has taken place.

Our most important message to everyone is to stay fit and healthy and exercise if you can. A family bike ride would be an excellent idea, keeping a sensible distance!

We wish everyone all the very best over these coming weeks.

Sign up for 29th March 2020

On Your Bike 2020 registration is now open!

Everyone who registers for the ride on our website before 6pm on 15th March 2020 will be automatically entered in to the draw to WIN A BIKE kindly donated by AW Cycles.

Rob Bowen from AWCycles said “I love cycling. I’m a big kid at heart. This is such a great community event we’re delighted to support it.

Another great event

1 April 2019

British Summer Time got off to a bang in Sonning Common as the annual On Your Bike Event got underway on Sunday morning.

Now in its 13th year, the family event saw 500 entrants between the ages of 5 and 75; as children, mums, dads and grandparents picked from a 6, 12 or 20 mile lap starting and finishing in the playground at Sonning Common Primary School.

An army of more than 50 volunteers helped marshal the course, manage registration and provide hot food and drink to every finisher. The youngest participant this year, 5-year-old Leo Nash left the event having learned to ride a bike in the playground. ‘Seeing a young child come along and learn to ride a bike with Dad whilst his older brother was out riding the course with Mum is brilliant. Having whole families take part and go home smiling with a big sense of achievement is exactly what this event is all about’ said Geoff Davis, one of the marshals for this year’s event.

Commenting on the event, which has been run in the village since 2008 and is supported by local businesses including AW Cycles, Peppard Building Supplies and Ella’s Kitchen, 8 year-old Sadie Skilton, who did the 12 mile route said: “It was a really fun day, I have never cycled that far before – but it was great doing it with my Dad and friends”.

Penny Snowden, the founder of the event said ‘the total money raised from this year’s On Your Bike was £4000, which brings the total raised since the first event to over £50,000. All money raised goes to local charities and this year went towards funding trips out for elderly residents of the village with FISH and towards a new play area for Sonning Common Primary School’.For further information visit: www.onyourbikesonningcommon.co.uk

Celebrating the passion of our riders

An enthusiastic 469 people took part in this year’s On Your Bike.

“The best bit was going down the hills.” said Jack Hutchins, 10, who cycled 6 miles with his Mum Claire, Dad Paul and sister Lucy, 7. Paul said “It’s really good for everyone to be doing something together, and it’s the furthest Lucy’s ever cycled, which is great.”

“Completing On Your Bike is a huge achievement for many of the children.” said On Your Bike Founder, Penny Snowden. “The youngest rider to cycle the full 20 mile route under his own pedal power, was 6 year old Oscar Nash, from Sonning Common Primary School. Remarkable! I was overwhelmed to see so many children and teenagers from other schools take part this year too.”

At least £3,000 has been raised so far from sponsors, entry fees and donations. On your bike has raised over £50,000 now since it began.
