Ride, Donate, Share - Get fit, have fun and keep active this winter whilst supporting the town's local charities afloat!

From 7 to 31 December, help support amazing local charities by getting on a Beryl bike and helping Watford cycle to Lapland and back, and text 'WATFORD' to 70201 to donate £1 as you take part. We’re aiming to cycle 6,307km collectively!

If every Watford resident donated just £1, we’d raise over £90,000 for the fund. Every donation helps! ​Send us your selfies as you join in, and why not tag your mates and get them involved?


How to join in

Residents can take their own bike out for a spin around their local park, shops or hire a Beryl bike and get sponsored or donate to the appeal. At the end of the campaign, a prize draw will take place with a six month Everyone Active family membership worth £675 with fitness goodies up for grabs for the lucky winner.


If residents are using their own bike to cycle their distance, they’re asked to email with their distance so the council can track the total area covered. You may even spot Santa on the Beryl cargo bike!



We’re are also looking for companies to donate to the charity campaign based on a chosen metric (number of Beryl Bike rides or number of kms ridden on a Beryl Bike). Options include:


  • Donate £1 per KM for the journey to Lapland and back (6,292 KM) - £6,292

  • Donate 50p per KM for the journey to Lapland and back (6,292 KM) - £3,146

  • Other TBC (can discuss)


Thanks to the efforts of residents and local businesses, we are over halfway on our journey! 

Let's not stop there - please continue to cycle to help us back to Watford and don't forget to donate to the Watford Helps Covid Appeal along the way.
