How far will you go this Bank Holiday?
- John O'Groats - Lands End Endurance Bike Ride in Aid of 3
Charities: 28th - 30th May 2004
12 cyclists from all over the UK have accepted the challenge to form
two teams of six and ride in relay 900 miles from John O'Groats to
Lands End - inside three days. Targeting the diseases of Cancer and
Leukaemia, three charities will benefit: Anthony Nolan Trust, CLIC,
and the Paul Bevan Hospice. The riders aim to raise at least
£10,000 for these charities.
Starting at 4 a.m. on 28th May, each pair of riders will be on the
road for 1½ hours before handing over to the next pair. Cycling all
day and all night will mean that sleep will have to be taken in
snatches, but the effort can be concentrated into three days. All
going well, the teams expect to arrive at Lands End around tea time on
Sunday 30th May. Ably supported by minibus transport and a continual
supply of high energy drinks and food, we are hoping that the weather
is kind and the wind stays with us rather than against us.

Thank you for your support.
