The First Ten Years

The 30/30 Challenge

2017 saw the 30 Ride in 30 Days reach it’s tenth year. So far over £630,000 has been raised for Les Bourgs Hospice and the challenge has grown from just 36 participants in 2008 to just over 100 in 2017. For 2018 we plan to have 30 Individual Riders and 30 Combination Entrants of up to four riders per combine.

Entry is limited and so will be filled by those that can commit to the fundraising  ethos of previous 30/30 challenges.

The dates for the challenge in 2018 are Day 1 on Saturday 28th April and ending on the day of the R2R on Sunday 27th May.


Formal participation will be by those that commit to trying to raise as much as £900 from Les Bourgs (£30 for 30 Days).

How it works

1 Hour

Ride for at least one hour a day, that’s it

Individually / Team

On your own or in teams

Every Day

For 30 days leading to the Les Bourgs Hospice Rocque to Rock

Just Ride

Ride wherever you like!


Day one will begin with the traditional 30in30 Group Breakfast.

Day 30 is the Rocque to Rock around Island Bike Ride for Les Bourgs Hospice on a date to be decided.

As-well-as the usual events riders plan their own 30in30 themed events such as quizzes, treasure hunts, ride to work breakfasts, static bike rides, pub crawls and many more.

Please let us know if you are planning anything.

Where / How?

Apart from the last mile of Day 30, when we like as many of the riders as possible to arrive at North Beach, the end of the Rocque to Rock, together then you may ride wherever and whenever you like.

As we’ve mentioned you may ride alone or with others. You may ride as far as you like. You may ride a some in the morning and the remainder at night.

Remember your only pledge is that you ride your bike for at least 60 minutes each day. If you need to go away then you may choose to ride your hour on a stationary bike within a hotel’s gymnasium and this is acceptable.

If for reasons beyond your control you need to miss a day then you can catch up as soon as time permits.
