SACA has been raising money for children’s charities since 1989 and this year is supporting the Rainbow Trust, which supports children with life-threatening or terminal illness. The Birmingham to London cycle ride attracts riders from all over the country and internationally as well.

The ride starts from Birmingham and proceeds through Coventry, Daventry and through Bedfordshire to Luton where there is an overnight stay. The ride continues in the morning and passes through St Albans where it stops at the Veer Dhara Restaurant. The ride finally continues its path to Radlet, Elstree and Harrow before reaching its final destination to Southall in West London.

Only a few weeks after the cyclists departed, Veer Dhara got a very different type of visitor, when Hollywood legend Tom Cruise stopped by with some friends for a curry. Cruise is
reported to have ordered lobster and chicken tikka masala . Apparently the film star was staying with friends and family near by and had chosen Veer Dhara because of its good reputation. His latest film,  All You Need Is Kill, is also being shot at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire.
