The Andrew Simpson Foundation is helping transform the lives of young people through sailing with its annual Bike4Bart cycle event.

Participants began at the Portsmouth Watersports Centre riding almost 14,000 miles through the Meon Valley in Hampshire, raising more than £14k for the charity.

Founding trustee, Sir Ben Ainslie CBE, said the foundation was thrilled to bring the event to Portsmouth. "Supported by the local community and partners across the UK, we can ensure access to a wide range of activities and entertainment for all," he said.

"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,” he added.

Helping young people excel

Bike4Bart helps to raise awareness of the Andrew Simpson Foundation. Funds raised helps the charity transform the lives of young people through sailing, inspired by Olympic gold and silver medallist Andrew ‘Bart’ Simpson MBE.

The Foundation is driven by the belief that all young people have the ability to excel and that the challenges of sailing promote health and well-being and build essential skills.
