EVENT LATEST: A total distance of 22,501km was ridden by our Bike4Bart participants over a stunning course, with rolling hills across the Meon Valley, helping to raise nearly 14k for the Andrew Simpson Foundation. What an amazing feat and we can’t thank you enough for your support! 👍 From all the team at the Andrew Simpson Foundation we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who supported the event including partners, stall holders, musicians, volunteers, staff and of course the incredible riders! 🚲 We will be shortly uploading an album with lots of pictures from the event, so make sure you watch this space!

The ride started from our Portsmouth Watersports Centre off Eastern Road and out to the Meon Valley on road routes of varying distances. New for this year was our Bike4Bart Watersports Festival, combining sport, water activities and LIVE music: a welcome addition to the events calendar for ASWC Portsmouth!

Bike4Bart helps to raise awareness of the amazing work that is currently carried out by our team at the Andrew Simpson Foundation. Funds raised helps us to transform the lives of young people through sailing, inspired by Olympic Gold and Silver medalist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson MBE who passionately believed that everyone should have the chance to try sailing and enjoy the many benefits that it brings.

Absolutely everything the Foundation does is driven by our belief that all young people have the ability to excel and succeed in life and work. We believe that the challenges of Sailing and Watersports do this by promoting health and well-being and building essential personal skills. We provide opportunities for everyone to get out on the water and we do this by delivering a range of key charitable activities, further enabled through fundraising and partnerships.

“We’re thrilled to bring this incredible event to Portsmouth in 2019 and supported by the local community and Partners across the UK, we can ensure access to a wide range of activities and entertainment for all: Funds raised via Bike4Bart will enable the Andrew Simpson Foundation to continue to reach out and engage with young people around the world to develop their life skills and capabilities by making sailing and watersports accessible, creating a hobby and passion for life.”

Sir Ben Ainslie CBE, founding trustee of the Andrew Simpson Foundation
