Cyclists are invited to take part in Brentford FC Community Sports Trust’s 1889 Challenge. The challenge is designed to raise much-needed funds for our award-winning charity. Cyclists are asked to cycle as many miles as possible between Saturday 1 and Sunday 16 August and reach the collective 1,889 miles – representing the year Brentford FC was founded.

Those taking part also have the chance to earn themselves a free Cycling Jersey inspired by our Farewell Griffin Park kit. Brentford 1889 participants will receive the official shirt when raising a minimum of £250 from sponsors. Sign up to the 1889 Challenge here. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email and a Strava event link, to help us keep track of the total distance covered.
