Ride 2 Remember

Exeter University announces Ride2Remember along the Western Front Battlefields.

A team of graduates and undergraduates from Exeter and Plymouth Universities Officer Training Corps will spend 5 days riding the length of the Western Front in late August.

They will be commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War and generate an online educational resource that will be available to schools and community groups across the region from early September.

Conducting their own research, they will collate and publish maps, extracts and video blogs during the ride, which sees them cycling a total of 1200 km to the Dolomite mountains of northern Italy before conducting a mountaineering and climbing expedition with 60 other University Officer Training Corps (UOTC) colleagues.

A website detailing the routes and experiences of the team of students during their ride will be available soon, and updated frequently once their journey begins.

Links will be provided soon.  If you have any questions, please email:
