The journey

On Sunday 29th July, our riders raised money and cycled 100 miles for leading disability charity, Leonard Cheshire. To prepare them for the tough course, riders Aaron, Brian, Jessica and Jordan were mentored by presenter and cycling expert, Rebecca Charlton. Contending with rain and wind, all four cyclists crossed the finishing line in less than 8 and a half hours with smiles on their faces

The fundraising

Each of our riders collected their commemorative medal and wore it with pride. Fuelled by the support of well-wishers, they reached their fundraising target of £20,000. This incredible sum has been raised between the riders through a variety of fundraising challenges including car washes, treasure hunts and football matches. We’d like to thank all the riders, and everyone who supported them along their journey.
