The 100-mile or 100km bike ride will start and finish at the Surrey and Sussex helicopter base at Redhill Aerodrome on June 23rd.
Both routes take in all counties covered by the two helicopters and the 100-mile route will pass through Marden – the home of Kent Air Ambulance.
Among the riders will be Team KSSAAT (Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance Trust) including crew members and a former patient.
Critical care paramedic Stu Plumbley said: “This is an exciting year to be involved with the Air Ambulance with the launch of our blood transfusion service in February and night flying later this year.
“However, to enable us to provide a 24-hour service we need an extra £1million which is why fundraising events such as the Double 100 are even more vital.
Last year’s Double 100 was held at the former Air Ambulance base at Dunsfold but the routes have been changed following the relocation of one of the charity’s helicopters to Redhill in preparation for the launch of night flying.
This year’s event has kindly been sponsored by Howard Cundey Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents, Asda, Warburtons and Wellbeing People.
Howard Cundey Senior Partner Tim Foulkes said: “With a network of offices based around the counties covered by the Air Ambulance, we are delighted to be the main sponsors of the charity’s 2013 Double 100.
“We look forward to welcoming the riders to our Forest Row branch which will also serve as a feeding station on the day.”
The Double 100 is open to regular and occasional cyclists with feeding stations along the scenic route.

Following a report from a member of the public about alleged suspicious activity, a 47-year-old man from Chertsey, was arrested in the Goldsworth Park area on Saturday (18 May). He is currently on police bail and is due to report back on 22 July 2013.
West Surrey Detective Chief Inspector Karen Mizzi leading the investigation said: “The community can be reassured officers from CID are working closely with the Woking Safer Neighbourhood Team in this ongoing enquiry and that any information passed to police by the public will be acted upon accordingly. This morning saw a number of officers carrying out an anniversary visit in the immediate vicinity of Inkerman Road, where there was a report of a suspicious incident involving a man talking with a schoolgirl on Monday, 13 May at around 8am. In a bid to jog people’s memories officers spoke with local residents and those in the area who might have information which could help with the investigation.
“There have been no further incidents reported and activity by Surrey Police continues in order to collate as much information as possible into the recent incidents.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Surrey Police on 101 quoting WK/13/2648. Alternatively the independent charity Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
Residents may remember the podcast I recorded with Camberley Car Show organiser Ken Bonner.
The Car Show first hit Camberley last year as a kind of last minute idea but was a huge success.
Funds raised from the event go to The South West Kidney Fund.
This years show is going to be bigger and better and to help get the show off to a great start the organisers have launched an event web site which can be found at: www.camberleycarshow.co.uk
The event will be held on Saturday 31st August 2013 between 10am and 4pm in Camberley Town Centre (Park Street and the High street).
Please show your support and enjoy the amazing cars that will be on display.
The incident happened at around 11.45am on Thursday 16 May when two men entered the site and tried to force open a large container of tools and items of machinery and plant. Fortunately they were disturbed and left the scene in a white LDV pick up van with high sided mesh grates on the side containing items of scrap and washing machines.
The first offender is described as white, in his late twenties to early thirties with tanned skin. He was around 6ft tall and had dark swept back hair. He was wearing jeans, a jumper and brown boots.
The second offender is described as white, in his late teens to early twenties also with tanned skin. He was approximately 5ft 8” tall and had blonde swept back hair.
This crime is being linked to the theft of two compressors from the same site sometime between 3-7 May.
DC Clare Nettleton said: “We have good descriptions of the suspects and their get away vehicle and we would like to hear from anyone who may have any information about this offence or has seen the vehicle in the area recently.”
Anyone with information should call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference SH/13/2173.
