The Annual Caterham Cycle Challenge

Couch to 660k Inspired by The Gibb Challenge Australia

Sunnydown School in Caterham provides education for young autistic men, following a GCSE curriculum. This academic pathway is supplemented through exciting opportunities such as landscape design, DIY projects, Life Skills and cultural cooking experiences to name a few. One of our major alternative offers is the cycle maintenance scheme where all boys have access to a qualified cycle mechanic and mentor, maintaining and repairing bikes in our very own cycle mechanic workshop. It is through this scheme that we now reach out to the wider community.

Covid has been difficult for many people and as a small maintained Special School, we want to give something back to our community. We are inviting you to be part of our attempt to unite for the benefit of people potentially less fortunate than ourselves.

As part of our cycle scheme, and inspired by The Gibb Challenge in Australia (, we are cycling 660km around Kenley Aerodrome from 13th to 20th May 2022. We plan on raising £35000 to support the families of all local primary schools who may be in need of access to a Mental Health Practitioner,or possibly to buy quality school shoes for families receiving Free School Meals ready for September.

You can contribute to the fundraising effort by dropping coins into the collection tins on the counter of many local businesses, making donations directly to the event, sponsoring a cyclist from Sunnydown, encouraging businesses to purchase one of our corporate sponsorship opportunities or even sponsoring the event yourself.

With a wide range of corporate sponsorship packages available for all budgets, plus the opportunity to have your logo on all 120 tops with the Shirt Sponsorship option, there are plenty of ways to be involved.
