A Tribute to Alan Turing

208km cycling event starting from Reading, Berks. Controls at Buckingham and Ampthill, plus 3 information controls.

208km ride via Bletchley Park as a tribute to ALAN TURING, the father of Theoretical Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. Registration fee also supports Thames Valley Air Ambulance & Launchpad Reading.

Part of brand new Audax rides starting from Reading paying TRIBUTE to some of the top UK Science Pioneers. Alan Turing and fellow codebreakers played a pivotal role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to win many crucial engagements, shortening the war by 2 years and saving over 14 million lives. The route loops around Bletchley Park where the codebreakers worked under oath of secrecy and we invite you to reflect for a moment the immense contributions of these unsung heroes. Perhaps say a thank you in silence? Through the registration fee, you’re also fundraising for Thames Valley Air Ambulance & Launchpad Reading. Breakfast at start and food at the finish are included in the price. Nearest train station is READING which is 0.9mile from start (Our Lady & St Anne's Church, RG4 5AB). Free on-street parking. We look forward to welcoming you on this ride! ******************************************************************************************* POSTAL ENTRIES: Preferred option is entry by online and you don't need a Paypal account to do this.
