Celebrate with our Bridge to Bridge cyclists as they complete their challenge
We've set ourselves an ambitious task to cycle 1,100 km from Oxford to Venice to celebrate 100 years of our 'Bridge of Sighs'. The first leg of the journey will set off from under the Bridge of Sighs in Oxford on 19th July, and arrive in Venice on 29th July.
Please join us in cheering our cyclists over the final few metres of their epic journey.
To celebrate our arrival in Venice we are hosting a celebratory meal at Cipriani's restaurant on Torcello, as well as a gondola ride under the Bridge of Sighs. All alumni and friends of the college are welcome to join us, and to bring a guest.
Place: Close to the Terminal Fusina Venezia Srl Via Moranzani, 79 30176 Venezia Italy (the best way to get there would be to travel by boat from Venice)
Time: Approximately 2 – 3 pm
We've arranged travel from the finish line to take us for a gondola ride under the Bridge of Sighs.
From there, we'll travel to Hotel Carlton (where our cyclists will be having a quick shower) and reconvene at 7 pm for the evening's events.
Meeting point: Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, Sestiere Santa Croce, 578, 30135 Venezia, Italy
Time: 7.00 pm sharp
Restaurant time & venue: 8.30 pm at Locanda Cipriani Torcello, Piazza Santa Fosca, 29, 30142 Venezia, Italy
(if you are traveling directly to the restaurant allow one hour travel time from Venice Island)
The meal will include a three course dinner with apéritif, wine and tea or coffee. The charge also includes all travel costs and the gondola ride.
Our cyclists are all raising money for student support at Hertford. We hope you will want to support our cyclists with a donation, which you can make with your booking or on our JustGiving pages.
If you have any questions please contact the Development Office on +44(0)1865 279428 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the dress code?
We'd love to see some bright and colourful clothing at the finish line to cheer our cyclists over the final metres, and smart clothing for the evening dinner.
Where can I book accommodation?
If you are thinking of booking accommodation in Venice, we recommend Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal where our cyclists are staying.
What is your cancellation policy?
We will refund in full all cancellations made before Friday 4th July, but regret that after this date we are unable to make any refunds.
