What is the QF Bike Ride?

Since 2009, our annual Bike Ride has been one of our key fundraising events. Over the years we have cycled across Europe from Geneva to Paris, Bilbao to Barcelona, Zagreb to Split to name just a few. Since its inception, the ride has raised over £3.5 million and attendees have cycled over 4 000 miles.

The ride is a 4 day 500km charity cycle tour that raises much needed funds for charities right on our doorstep in London. In previously years the ride has raised money for The Felix Project, The Ruth Strauss Foundation, Grief Encounter and many more. 

This year we are raising money for our new initiative The Firefly Project.

About Quintessentially Foundation & The Firefly Project

There are over 700,000 children living in poverty in London - the highest rate of child poverty in England. Every day, they face challenges and barriers that prevent them from reaching their potential. We believe it’s time for this to change.

The Firefly Project works with grassroots charities that are proven to transform young lives. Through funding and tailored support, we ‘turbo charge’ these community-based organisations so they can reach more young people.

The QF Bike Ride will raise money to support The Firefly Project and its five charity partners – Little Village , 2020 Change,  The Kids Network, Team Up Doorstep Library
