Pub will raise thousands for local causes with Brighton to Bexleyheath cycle ride

A pub’s regulars will raise money for local charities by cycling 60 miles from Brighton – using the risky tactic of stopping off at other pubs along the way.
The pedal-pushers will be welcomed back from the Tour de Albert to their regular haunt, the Prince Albert Pub in Bexleyheath Broadway, with an all day event organised to start running at 2 pm – though some riders may not arrive until a considerable while after.
Last year there were 23 riders – this year there will be up to 50.
They will be greeted by a sound system plumbed out front and out back as well as inside, with 11 hours of Soul and Jazz funk delivered by 6 DJs.
The event is a celebration of the third anniversary of the monthly Soul Night events held at The Prince Albert every 2nd Saturday of the month.
There will be collection buckets to raise monies for the two charities, a raffle to win a bike donated by Bexley Bikes worth £799 and a street kitchen set up in the outside area at the back of the pub.
The route takes in planned stops at The Kentish Horse Edenbridge, and then a final stop before Hogtroph Hill at The Stanhope Arms.
