Paracycling Challenge

Monday 18th September

10.30am - 1.30pm, Derby Arena


Experience the buzz of cycling around the Velodrome track at Derby Arena on the back of a tandem, piloted by a professional British Cycling coach!

See if your team can ride further than any other, with the adrenaline rising with every 250m lap!

Take part whether you're blind, partially sighted, or sighted. Cycling experience is useful, but not essential. You don't need to have cycled on a tandem before.

There will be eight teams of four. Sign up with friends or work colleagues. Or enter as an individual and we will place you with a team.

Your challenge is to have a brilliant experience - and to raise £200 in sponsorship for Sight Support Derbyshire!

We will be racing against teams from Vista, Leicestershire's sight loss charity, so join Team SSD and help us win on the day! 

The money raised will go towards supporting services for local blind and partially sighted children and adults in Derbyshire. The event is happening during National Eye Health Week, which raises awareness of looking after your eyes.

A light lunch will be provided, and all entrants will get a T-shirt and a goody bag, provided by our sponsor, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors.

Join up now by calling the fundraising team on 01332 287027 or email us at

Sky Diving

Tandem skydiving gives you the opportunity to experience the thrill of freefall. You will experience 40 seconds in freefall and you will have approximately five minutes under the parachute. Just imagine freefalling at 120mph, falling amongst clouds, just like flying!

You will jump from up to 13,500 feet attached to your instructor using a specially designed dual harness. The instructor controls the freefall, parachute opening and landing, leaving you free to enjoy the stunning views and the sensation of freefall.

There is no better feeling than skydiving from an aeroplane when it's for fun and to raise money for charity, so why not give us a call for an experience to remember for ever? We ask you to raise a mimimum sponsorship of £500 to support visually impaired people throughout Derbyshire.
