Tough Derbyshire terrain, Nottinghamshire’s winding country roads and a night under the stars awaits us as we gear up for this year’s charity challenge.
We will over the course of three stamina-stretching events; collectively cover 1000 miles, with the aim of raising £7,000 for our five charity partners. We are banking on your support to spur us on.
On Sunday 23 June – six of us will take to two wheels and pedal between 50 and 125 mile routes around Notts in Cycle Live.
In July, the full group of us will tackle the landscape of the Derbyshire’s White Peak in a 26-mile trek.
In October, to coincide with National Homelessness Day, we’ll forfeit luxuries and spend an autumnal night sleeping in the open air in the Mowbray House garden.
To see how we have been preparing for the challenge see the video below!
Our adopted charities are:
Exeter - Step One Supporting people to manage their mental health achieve employment goals and live more independently.
