A host of DJs and industry names are set to cycle around 500 kilometres from London to Amsterdam Dance Event this coming October, to raise money for charity Bridges for Music.
Stretching over four days from 16 to 19 October, in recent years the ADE Cycle has welcomed the likes of Richie Hawtin, Joris Voorn Arielle Free and Rebekah as participants, as well as riders from firms such as Beatport, Pioneer, Resident Advisor and Awakenings.
“Joining the ADE/Bridges for Music cycle was one of the most exhilarating experiences, yet challenging, a true test of fitness,” commented techno DJ Rebekah (pictured below), who took part in 2019 and 2020, and is set to join the ride once again this year. “All whilst raising money for an awesome cause.”
Also confirmed to participate this year are Msaki, Dope Saint Jude and teams from Sonos, Parlophone/FFRR, Fabric and more.
Bridges for Music raises money to provide quality education to young talent in underserved communities in South Africa. This year, with the war taking place in Ukraine, the charity has partnered with Choose Love to help supply humanitarian aid for refugees.
This is the sixth time that the ADE Cycle has taken place, with Mark Grotefeld from longtime sponsor Pioneer DJ saying, “As a long standing partner of Bridges for Music it is our honour once again to sponsor the stellar cycle to ADE. Not only is this an incredible experience for all of the riders involved, but an opportunity to make a significant contribution to such a worthy organisation that helps create better futures for the less privileged in South Africa. Wishing everyone the best of luck and if you’re interested there are still a few rider spots available!”
