Latitude Festival's Tour De Latitude

by Julia Morgan on Tuesday, 26 June 2012

Heading to Latitude Festival this summer? Then leave the car at home and saddle up to be part of Latitude and Marks & Spencer's Tour De Latitude initiative.

Tour de Latitude will see you cycling all the way to Suffolk, where Latitude Festival is held - and it couldn't be for a better cause. Geared up to raise funds for the Kenyan Orphan Project and Julie's Bicycle, this London to Latitude bike ride will start from three points along the route, reducing the carbon footprint of every cyclist taking part.

If you're starting from London you can look forward to a 113 mile ride. Or, edge a little closer from Sudbury - a 55 mile ride - or the easier of the three, from Ipswich, which is still a 35 mile ride.

You can even leave your luggage behind, knowing that everything will be transported to the festival for you. On arrival relax (and recover) with a complimentary bus ticket for the journey back and store your bike safely in storage until its delivery home.

If you're tempted, you'll need to reach a fundraising target of £350. This will guarantee you entry into the festival, cover your cost of registration and - of course - go towards the donations to the chosen charities. Festival Republic, Latitude's organisers, will be adding to every peddler's total: £75 from Hackney, £35 from Sudbury or £25 from Ipswich.

Online registration is now open at - so what are you waiting for... get peddling!
