The Dambusters Ride
Last year, 431 cyclists took to the Lincolnshire roads – virtually and physically for The Dambusters Ride – raising almost £200,000 to make sure no member of our RAF Family faces adversity alone. So this year, we are taking it to the next level with new Heritage routes and more exciting plans yet to be announced.
2022 marks 79 years since the daring Dambusters raid. On the night of 16-17 May 1943, the RAF’s 617 Squadron carried out an audacious bombing raid attacking dams serving the Ruhr valley leaving German factories and mines badly damaged.
Honour those who took part in Operation Chastise, and in turn help us continue the work we’ve been doing for over 100 years by signing up to take on the ride.

On Saturday 14 May 2022 the new Heritage Century and 60-mile routes will be taking place at the historical Petwood Hotel (Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire). Both routes will include prominent landmarks such as Cranwell, Lincolnshire Aviation Centres and the ‘Just Jane’ Lancaster aircraft.
If you can’t make it to our Heritage Event don’t worry, you can ride along with us in the Virtual Event that takes places over the weekend 7-8 May 2022.
Three simple steps to secure your place in this year’s ride:
· Register for The Dambusters Ride 2022 through the Enthuse platform. If you are registering as part of a team, please make sure to set up or join your team at this stage as we are unable to make changes after sign-up.
· Personalise your online fundraising page that Enthuse automatically sets up for you – adding a photo and a little bit about why you’re taking on The Dambusters Ride helps encourage people to support your page.
· Share it far and wide! – Sharing the link to your fundraising page on your social channels and with your work colleagues tagging #TheDambustersRide will start you on your way to smashing your fundraising target.
