Join the IDAS Charity Cycle!

IDAS’ CEO, Sarah Hill, is cycling from York to Devon – a distance of 300 miles - this August to raise vital funds for survivors of domestic abuse. If you can support Sarah and fundraise for IDAS by joining her for part of her challenging journey, we’d love to hear from you!

Sarah will be setting off on Saturday, 24th August from York city centre, and we’re looking for supporters to join her for part of the route, cycling the old railway track from York to Selby and back.

The route is just over 26 miles and uses the track bed of the old East Coast Mainline railway. It is mainly traffic-free, making it ideal for novice cyclists and families. Along the way you’ll see the Cycle the Solar System artwork; a scale model of the solar system between Bishopthorpe and Riccall. The route is flat and scenic, passing through Naburn Marina, Moreby Far Wood and Escrick Station, Barlby and the Ouse Wall. It's part of the Trans Pennine Trail and National Cycle Network Route 65, so is well signposted.

Our team of volunteers will be there to cheer you on, and we’ll give you lots of support to help you reach your fundraising goals.

Sign up today – get in touch to register and secure your place.

IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire, supporting anyone who has been subjected to domestic abuse in York, North Yorkshire, Barnsley and Sheffield. We also provide specialist sexual violence support to victims and survivors across North Yorkshire. During 2023 we managed 18,000 referrals, answered 30,000 helpline calls, supported more than 10,000 people in our local community, and accommodated 250 families in our emergency refuge accommodation. You can find out more about the people we supported and all that we achieved last year in our 2023 Impact Report.

We need to raise around £100,000 each year so that we can continue to provide our vital, life-changing services. Every amount you raise, no matter how small, will make a difference. With your support we can help more people to escape violence and abuse, rebuild their self-esteem, and support children who have witnessed violence to recover from their experience.
