Around the world, people who were already vulnerable are being pushed further into poverty due to things like Covid-19, the climate crisis, and conflict. Saddle up for an epic ride and raise funds to help bring hope to people living in extreme poverty.
This September, we’re hoping to raise £10,000. This could train 4,650 people in business and life skills, equipping them to lift themselves out of poverty

The Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge has been getting people on their bikes and enjoying some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery since 2006. The routes have changed a bit over the years but the aim remains the same – to enjoy a fantastic day of cycling on largely traffic-free roads, whilst helping people living in poverty around the world to transform their lives.
This year, the course offers three routes:
- 34 miles (starting with the big feed at the Drumlanrig Castle)
- 50 miles (ending with the big feed at the Drumlanrig Castle)
- 84 miles (Stage 1 and Stage 2) (with the big feed between the two stages)
All routes start and end at the magnificent Drumlanrig castle and take in Scotland’s breathtaking scenery.
This event will be organised in line with ongoing government guidelines in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
As ever, there’ll be feed stations en route to keep you going, as well as a celebratory big feed.
The registration fee for this year's cycle is £30 per person which will go towards covering the costs of the cycle.
However, the Drumlanrig Cycle Challenge is a fundraising event and we ask every cyclist to consider either:
- Donating a small amount on top of their entry fee or,
- To commit to fundraise the suggested amount of £108 per person to really impact your giving and help change lives.
These two options will be optional during the registration stage. If you decide to fundraise £108 for Tearfund, a JustGiving page will be automatically created for you.
All money raised through these two options will help bring hope to people living in extreme poverty. People like Gilbert in Rwanda.
