BLACK UNITY BIKE RIDE’22

WE ARE BACK FOR A THIRD YEAR – We ride in the name of Unity, Empowerment & Love!

The 15-mile ride is a celebration of Black Empowerment, Unity and Love. The event kicks off at Leyton Sports Ground in East London and concludes at our new BUBR Fest in Brockwell Park, South London via central London. The event is not a race, it is an inclusive community bike ride. If you have never been that far on a bike before, don’t fret as we have two pitstops along the route where you can rest and refresh before we get going again and nuff vibes will be supplied!

The event is historic and open to riders of all ethnicities and walks of life. However, does specifically target those from the African and African-Caribbean communities.

Please note, this year we have 2 tickets options for you to choose from:

– Ticket option 1: Donation only

– Ticket option 2: Donations & Merch (Delivery)

N.B. To participate, you need to register for the ride (minimum donation £3). BUBR is a charity project, all donations go towards covering the cost of this event. We have some significant expenses like venue hire, road closure fees, insurance, entertainment, etc.
