Will you help Khushi to cycle to Kolkata?
Khushi the Cow is virtually cycling to Kolkata and is encouraging everyone, regardless of geographical location, to get on their bikes and cycle as many miles as they can. The plan is to raise as much money as possible in sponsorship (we suggest £1 per mile) to support Khushi Feet’s aim of helping to provide education for street children in Kolkata. And we need you to join in!
Get On Your Bike!
You will be able to add your miles to our virtual cycle ride to Kolkata and you will able to track how far we’ve all got by visiting the Cycle to Kolkata Dashboard. You can cycle as little or as much as you like. You can team up with a group of friends or do it on your own. Whatever you fancy!
The project was given an exciting launch at Faversham Gym Club on Friday 14th March when Khushi The Cow kick-started the challenge by cycling the first mile of our bike ride with MP Hugh Robertson (who was Minister for the 2012 Olympic Games), who officially launched the project.
Cycle to Kolkata, will run from Friday 14th March until 3 September. The bike ride is over 6,000 miles long! Can we cycle to Kolkata?

Khushi Says . . .
- wear some kind of protective hat and appropriate clothing
- we're not responsible if you ride like a fool or sustain injury
- remember the Highway Code (or whatever rules of the road your country abides by)
- it's not a race - we want to "arrive" in Kolkata as a team
- ride safely (like Khushi said before)
