Our Grays dojos are in need of new training mats so that we can train safely. We need at least 100 mats to cover the floor area so to raise our target of £2,280, we will cycle a 35 mile route, passing all of the Seitou Ryu Karate dojos from Chelmsford to Grays.

This event is open to everyone. You do not have to be a member of Seitou Ryu Karate. So if you want to come for a ride to help us raise funds for new mats you’re welcome to join us either for part or the whole route!

Please note only competent riders can participate in the full ride (35 miles). You must be able to ride at least 10-12 miles in an hour or less. This will keep the group journey time to a minimum. As much as we enjoy everyone’s company and would love everyone to join in the full ride, slower riders make it very challenging to complete the journey in a reasonable time.

If you would still like to participate but can’t ride at this pace you can join in with the second group who will be starting from Wickford dojo instead.

The Cycle Route

→Chelmsford to Wickford = 11 Miles

→Wickford to South Ockendon = 18 Miles

→South Ockendon to West Thurrock = 4 Miles

→West Thurrock to Grays = 2 Miles
