Brand New for 2019!
The Cycleogical Bike Ride; Going the Distance for the PTC.
On 22nd June 2019, 24 riders from 18 forces will take on 230 miles in 24 hours all in support of the PTC's Psychological Wellbeing Programme.
The Cycleogical Bike Ride will start at our Centre in Auchterarder and take in the scenery all the way to our Centre in Harrogate.
We have identified an elite Peloton of riders, who have been selected as the best of the best from their force. They will all aim to ride all 230 miles as a peloton; this is a staggering test of endurance, skill and determination! Each rider will hope to raise at least £1 per officer in their force, and will have the support of a fundraising buddy to do this.
The peloton are not riding for fun...but to fundraise for the PTC's Psychological Wellbeing Programme.
Cycleogical Bike Ride will raise funds for the expansion of our Psychological
Wellbeing Programme. 1 in 4 officers, who attend our centres, currently do so
to receive Psychological Wellbeing Support for mild to moderate stress,
anxiety or depression as a result of a situation on or off duty. The PTC is a
vital lifeline and confidential place of support for those officers who require
PTC secured £1.5 million from the LIBOR bank fines to extend our Wellbeing
Programme to meet the increasing demand for the service. Money raised during
the challenge will allow us to provide more spaces on the programme and
continue to offer the excellent level of care to our police family
