Bike to Hike Challenge 2022

Back in May 2022 Chalkdown volunteer Gill Stewart and her husband James set off with a group of friends to cycle 1000 miles from St Malo to Nice and then a few weeks later this was followed with a 200 mile hike across the Alps.    They raised a magnificent £25,000 for Chalkdown and this has funded the building of a new 5 stable block for the ponies at Duckhurst Equestrian Centre.    

Having the ponies all together on site at Duckhurst has quickly enabled the group to expand into an extra day of riding sessions and the first Chalkdown Summer Club took place in August.

Chalkdown trustees, volunteers and riders are extremely grateful to all the Bike2Hikers and their supporters.    

Thank you!
