Bike4Bart Charity Sportive 2018
2nd September 2018
Like many others within the British Sailing Team and sailing community, Olympic Gold Medalist, Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson was a keen cyclist. Bart’s friends and family, therefore, decided it would be a fitting tribute to organise a Cycling event in his honour which will start and end at the National Sailing Academy where he trained for his Olympic Campaigns and head towards his hometown of Sherborne, North Dorset.
Bike4Bart also aims to help raise awareness of the amazing work that is currently taking place by the Andrew Simpson Foundation around the world, and help to raise funds, allowing them to continue increasing and inspiring participation, and improve the lives of disadvantaged young people. Alongside the Cycling event, the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre, also based at the National Sailing Academy will throw its doors open to the public offering a variety of free waterbased and sailing activities, culminating in a great fun day for all the family.
