Cycle for sight – help us to make a big difference

185 miles. 360º loop around London. Two days. One great cause.

Sight is the most treasured of our five senses. We see the world and its myriad of colours and shapes through the windows of our eyes. We learn with them. We laugh with them. We communicate with them. We provide for our families with them. We see our loved ones with them. Sight can make the difference between a life of poverty and a life of opportunity.

That’s why we are ‘cycling for sight’ – raising money for the charity Optometry Giving Sight to support their amazing work around the world, which focuses on targeting the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error.

Who we are

We are like-minded individuals who work in the optical industry. We’re getting together to form a team to take on the challenge because we passionately believe in the life-changing power of sight. Many of us support a range of optical charitable initiatives and wanted to come together to raise as much as we can through this challenge so that Optometry Giving Sight can continue their amazing work.  

The challenge 

We are taking on the London Revolution. It’s a round-London cycle challenge that will cover over 185 miles in two days. It takes place on the 13th and 14th May 2017
