Around the World for Duchenne

2021 Duchenne Dash, UK

For a number of years now I’ve been creating images for the Duchenne Dash, UK. Last year, 2020 was of course a challenge for everyone as it was postponed. But now the good people at Duchenne are back!

The Duchenne Dash is Duchenne UK’s signature VIP cycling event. The usual route, from London to Paris, can’t happen this year. Instead they’re taking over the Goodwood Motor Circuit, nestled in the South Downs and home to Glorious Goodwood and The Festival of Speed.

This is a once in a life time opportunity to cycle at one of the world’s most famous race tracks – and raise money to help beat the number one genetic killer of children.

 

THE DUCHENNE DASH: AROUND THE WORLD

We’re challenging 300 cyclists to collectively cycle the total circumference of the globe; that’s 40,000KM in just 12 hours!

We missed you all last year, and we can’t wait to get everyone back together, in a Covid secure environment, and to once again achieve something amazing!

GETTING INVOLVED

Entry is simple, but places are STRICTLY limited to just 300 riders, so register now.

The Duchenne Dash is suitable for people of all ages, cycling abilities and team sizes. You can cycle alone or as a group for as long or as little as you like over the 12 hours, managing your own time on/off the track.

Focus on hitting your own personal distance target, or work together as a team to cover even more KMs. However you do it, your KMs will be added to the total distance covered to help us reach our goal of pedalling 40,000km together.

No matter how you take part you will never ride ‘alone’. Our experienced Ride Captains will be out in force managing paced speed groups and providing lots of support and encouragement to get you to your target distance.
