Supporting our community

The Tour de Ricky is a not for profit event organised by volunteers.

Any surplus will be split between the organising cycling club Willesden CC, our hosts, Maple Cross’ very own Woodoaks Farm and Watford Cycle Hub

We ask everyone taking part to support these charities as well as the cafes which we are using as controls – some of whom have opened or changed their hours just for us.

Transforming habitats inside the M25

Woodoaks farm is now run by the Soil Association and supported by a growing band of local volunteers.

As well as operating as commercial farming business, it is home to a number of thriving local enterprises and, by careful management, recreating important habitats for wildlife on the very edge of the capital.

You can support them directly here.

Watford Cycle Hub – getting SW Herts pedalling

With workshop hubs in West Watford and Leavesden, the Cycle Hub is on a mission to support the community and get people turning the pedals.

Whether it’s excellent mechanics, reconditioned bikes, common sense advice or training, the Hub supports everyone from novices to experienced club riders. And they are the perfect place to get a pre ride service.
