Hillingdon Cycle Circuit

Hillingdon Cycle Circuit has been established now for 20 years. There have been many changes in that time – from the first race where the approach to the circuit was mud, gravel and rocks and sign on was on a paste table.   Over the years we’ve seen the infrastructure develop from the introduction of shipping containers to the installation of a timing hut and Clubhouse, plus many alterations and improvements to the outdoor facilities.  During this time Hillingdon Cycle Circuit has welcomed a host of Professional riders, World Champions, multiple Olympic Champions, Tour de France winners and the occasional ‘Sir’ through it’s doors   The venue is now used by hundreds people every week and it continues to grow year-on-year.

London’s Air Ambulance Charity

Established in 1989, London’s Air Ambulance is a charity which relies almost entirely on donations.  Not unlike Hillingdon Cycle Circuit, the charity started with the very basics and just a small team of pioneers and has now evolved into a diverse team of operational staff and an increasing number of fund-raisers.  It currently costs approximately £6 million per year to operate the service, which delivers an advanced trauma team to critically injured people in London 24/7, using a helicopter by day and rapid response cars by night or in adverse weather conditions.  LAAS serves the 10 million people living and travelling within the M25 and treats an average of 5 major casualties every day.

As cyclists, road users, events promoters and residents of London and it’s surrounding area, we are acutely aware of the tremendous work the Emergency Services deliver and have much to thank them for, in particular London’s Air Ambulance.  This is our opportunity to give back, and raise some much needed funds to help the charity continue and expand.
