ACCA’s Charity Bike Ride returns this weekend

Money to be raised in aid of underprivileged children

There is still time to sign up for the 11th Annual Charity Bike Ride organised by Algarve charity ACCA, which will take place on Sunday, May 8.

The event is held every year in a bid to raise money for the children in need that ACCA supports in the Algarve.

It will begin at Conrad Algarve in Quinta do Lago, with a choice of routes for riders of all fitness levels and abilities. There is a 10km ride which will begin at 10.30am, as well as a 25km ride starting at 10am, a 50km ride at 9am and a 75km ride at 8am, with meet-ups taking place 15 minutes before the start.

To take part, riders must raise a minimum of €50 for the children supported by ACCA. A 10km “Parents and Kids” route with entertainment is €10 per child.

Participants can also enjoy a “delectable culinary treat” after the rides, courtesy of Conrad Algarve, as well as a raffle.

ACCA was founded in 2000. Since then, ACCA has delivered life-saving and life-changing therapies and medical aid to disadvantaged youngsters who either live below the poverty line, or are orphaned and in care, or who require specialist treatment that is not available to them through Social Services.
