What is RAFA Rides?

RAFA Rides is the RAF Association’s annual global cycling event. Suitable for everyone from keen cyclists to amateur riders, it is a chance for to you to challenge yourself and be part of cycling event like no other, all while showing your support for the RAF community.

Money raised is used to fund the RAF Association’s vital work providing much-needed help and support to thousands in the RAF community. In 2023 the event raised an incredible £110,000.

There are many reasons to join RAFA Rides. For Warrant Officer Stevie Joy, signing up for RAFA Rides was a way of taking control during a dark time. Taking part boosted his mental wellbeing and helped him deal with the death of his father.

In 2024 cyclists can choose to take part in one of our four major events or sign up for RAFA Rides Your Way.

This year there will be events taking place at Kendrew Barracks as well as at two of the RAF’s most prolific stations; RAF Brize Norton and RAF Marham, plus a global Zwift event.

The RAFA Rides season will begin at RAF Marham on Sunday 2 June, followed by RAF Brize Norton on 8 June and the Kendrew Barracks sportive and global Zwift ride on Saturday 15 June.

RAFA Rides Your Way offers participants the most flexibility, allowing teams and individuals to create their own events from wherever they are in the world, choosing their own date, start time, location and distance.
