A charity is looking for cyclists with nerves of steel to ghost their way through London to help make wishes come true for children with life-threatening illnesses.
Round Table Children’s Wish (RTCW) is recruiting participants to cycle 100km in the ‘Halloween Moonride’ challenge.
The night-time tour takes in some of London’s most haunted and spooky sites and begins at 10pm on October 25.
The Bournemouth-based national charity is hoping to raise money so it can grant more wishes to children who face challenges every day because of their illnesses.
Starting off near Waterloo, the Halloween Moonride will take cyclists on a route through London’s sinister side.
It passes through dark alleyways steeped in history, ancient towers and neglected graveyards on a ride full of surprises with a great party atmosphere.
Cyclists, who are free to wear fancy dress, will also be able to refuel on pumpkin punch and devilish delights at the lavish hot meal stop at 50km.
There will also be some classic Halloween themed games and the event also includes an 80km option.
The ride will finish with a celebratory Halloween breakfast for all Moonriders.
For the Halloween Moonride challenge, it costs £39 to enter with £250 to raise for RTCW.
The charity helps brave and inspirational young people aged between four and 17 by making their dreams a reality.
A wide variety of wishes are granted including family holidays, trips to Disneyland, a chance to meet a favourite celebrity or being able to have a toy or item that enables life to be a little more enjoyable during a very difficult time.
Since RTCW opened its doors in 1990 it has granted over 1,500 wishes.
Samantha Read from the charity said: “We’d love to register people to take on this amazing challenge in support of the children we grant wishes for.
“These children battle their way through many challenges every day because of their illness and for them to have a wish granted makes so much difference to their lives and their families’ lives.”
