Teenage Cancer Charity Cycle Ride

Home » Latest News » Teenage Cancer Charity Cycle Ride
Land's End

We have received tremendous support so far and are very humbled by the kind donations made by so many people. We would, however, still appreciate your support to reach our £5000 target.

We have ridden close to 1000 miles in training so far this year, a mixture of turbo and road miles. Fortunately the weather has been reasonably kind to us.

We will be setting out on April 5th 2012, averaging 110 miles a day, cycling from Land's End to John O' Groats, covering nearly 900 miles in 8 days.

Whilst it is a long held ambition for us to complete this adventure, we also believe that it is a great opportunity to raise money for our chosen charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.

We hope that you can support by donating online using the links below the photo, where you will also find a training blog.

Your support means a great deal to us and will spur us on in our training and challenge. To support us on route our schedule is as follows:


  • 5th April Lands End to Whiddon Down 97 miles DAY 1

  • 6th April Whiddon Down to Thornbury 110 miles DAY 2

  • 7th April Thornbury to Coxbank 116 miles DAY 3

  • 8th April Coxbank to Kendal 110 miles DAY 4

  • 9th April Kendal to Abington 106 miles DAY 5

  • 10th April Abington to Pitlochry 115 miles DAY 6

  • 11th April Pitlochry to Tain 118 miles DAY 7

  • 12th April Tain to John O' Groats 86 miles DAY 8

  • Total 858 miles

Good news this week about the economy with the manufacturing sector recording it's seventh month of growth in a row.Not so good though for the construction sector which is still in the doldrums.Many of us may find this odd when so many local villages boast new housing developments and of course we in Audlem are no exception.At a rough count, there are around 150 properties either under...

I was wondering if anyone in Audlem was involved with the Shoe Box Appeal? I recently went to Romania, Cluj with Teams 4U and helped deliver to the children's homes, gypsy camps and schools. Also to some of the Mums.I was suggesting I use my large garage as a storage /drop off place but I didn't want to organise it if there was something already set up. I cannot begin to tell you...
