Shut Up Legs on his Charity Ride in the New ForestHello my friends

Our charity ride is going into its fifth year and we try to get a little better and bigger every year. So my friend Stuart Grace came up with the idea of an official and proper website for our "Shut Up Legs Ride" and I want welcome you all on our brand new page. Thank you so much for having a look and helping us to raise awareness and funding in our support for the epilepsysociety.org.uk.

We plan to have our event on Saturday 2nd September 2017. Please check all details and how to register on this webpage and please tell your family and friends about us and invite them as well, please bring friends, parents, kids, partners and whoever wants to come along to have a great and relaxed fun time with us.



Shut Up Legs on his Charity Ride in the New Forest



We are a small event, just organised by my friend Stuart Grace and a small part by myself. We raised £10,000 in our first year and in our second year we manged to raise just above £11,000, so please help us to become a little better and bigger. I can assure you that in last three years everybody had a great time and was happy how we run our charity ride. Everybody met Stuart's daughter Amy, who suffers from Epilepsy and is the reason why we started this charity ride to help all the children who suffer from it, and to finish with a smile.

in 2015 we did our event two days after my hour record in Switzerland. In January 2015 I promised Stuart that we'd do our ride, and only later I decided to go for the hour record, and I knew it'd be pretty close timing, but I could not leave Stuart hanging high and dry, right?! So I flew home on the 19th September, a day after my hour record, changed my suitcase and flew straight to England, the night of the 19th September. On the 20th September Stuart presented our ride to all our participants and he told me to hide behind the curtains on stage so I would be a surprise. Later Stuart told that he could almost see the whole crowd thinking "It's impossible that Jens Voigt is gonna be here, only two days after his hour record, this must be a fake, a trick." Everyone was happy when Stuart finally told me to come up on stage.

Just a little story to tell you; Stuart is hardworking man and there is no faking or trickery in the way we work. Trust us­ you're gonna love it.

Yours, Jens Voigt

Shut Up Legs Charity Ride in the New Forest

Shut Up Legs! Is the way all superstar sportives should be; intimate, equal, leisurely and conversational. 50 miles at Saturday club run pace through the pretty tourist villages of Sway and Burley saw the ride winding its way over heath and through meandering and ponies.

Jens Voight Shut Up Legs Charity Ride in the New Forest

“I did wonder if anyone would think the £100 I was asking for would be too much and people wouldn’t come. I’ve spent most of my adult life raising money for charity, my daughter suffers from epilepsy and learning difficulties and I’ve worked so hard to make this happen to raise money to help others like her”

Shut Up Legs Charity Ride in the New Forest

There are short sharp hills to test the mettle but the big draw is the scenery and the tremendous state of the roads. Certainly, compared to those of the Ladies of the Lakes and Sean Kelly Tour of Waterford or even my home county of Shropshire, the roads that played host the Shut Up Legs! are the deep, shag pile carpet of the sportive world.
