Edwin Coe sponsors the Palace on Wheels bike ride
Edwin Coe is delighted to announce that it is sponsoring the Palace on Wheels bike ride, a unique 4 day cycling event journeying across the UK’s most iconic royal palaces between 10-13 June 2021.
This is the first time the bike ride will be hosted in the UK, and the British Asian Trust is aiming to cross the £1 million mark of funds raised to date. The British Asian Trust can make a difference in people’s lives across South Asia and their work is critical due to the destitution that Covid-19 has wreaked on the region.
You can also follow the team’s progress on Twitter and Instagram.
Past bike rides include India, Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Tanzania, click here to watch a video, or if you would like to donate please click here.

Yesterday, the cyclists met HRH The Prince Of Wales, and British Asian Trust ambassador Sanjeev Bhaskar, at Highgrove House before they headed off on their 400km challenge – a 4 day route ending at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
Update – 14 June 2021
Congratulations to the ‘Palaces on Wheels’ team who have just completed their challenge. As noted earlier, the cyclists began their journey in the heart of the Cotswolds at Highgrove House, the residence of HRH The Prince of Wales, Royal Founding Patron of the British Asian Trust, before heading through the spectacular Cotswold Area of Natural Beauty. The route then travelled through Oxford towards Windsor Castle and on to London to Buckingham Palace. After starting the following day at the famous Tower of London, the cyclists headed north towards Cambridge, with the final day seeing a celebratory finish at the Sandringham Estate.
A total of over £1.2 million has been raised over the course of this and previous cycling events in aid of the British Asian Trust, which has seen British cyclists, including Edwin Coe’s Joanne McIvor, travel through Sri Lanka, India, Tanzania and Cambodia in past years.
