Take part in Tour De Y cycle ride from Guildford to Brighton and raise money to support our work in the local community.

On Sunday 21 September, 2014 staff, friends and supporters of YMCA DLG will cycle the Downs Link route that joins the two merged organisations to raise money and awareness of our great work. So take part and invite your family, friends and neighbours too! It’s an easy path – fairly flat but for those who can’t manage the whole way there are half-route options.
