Only two weeks to go until Le Tour De Frack Register now!

Le Tour de Frack Final Y&B Lighter FOLOn 23 June 2018 we will be gathering for an ‘en masse’ cycle tour of areas affected by unconventional oil drilling in the South East of England. Sites will include Horse Hill, Brockham and Leith Hill in Surrey and Balcombe in West Sussex.

This will be a fun event with riders of all levels and abilities welcome. You can participate for a small section of the route or make a whole day of it.  The ride will be bright and colourful with flags and banners to raise awareness and to get our message out ‘Clean Energy Now’ and ‘No to Drilling in The Weald’.

The tour will start from Meadowbank in Dorking at 10.30am.  There will be three routes to choose from; 22 miles, 30 miles or 57 miles.  Participating cyclists should register at Eventbrite.

For a sneak preview of the routes, go to the following links.  All riders will be issued with the routes plus timings and rest stops on the day.

If cycling is not your thing, please join us instead at ‘Greet at the Gates’ to cheer the cyclists on and to come together for refreshments, music, fun, games, information sharing and of course… cake!

Stops will include Brockham Green, Horse Hill and Balcombe (more details to follow).  Or join us at the finishing line at Leith Hill Protection Camp where the event will wind down with food and entertainment.  There will even be massage therapists on hand to sooth any aching limbs!
