Come August a group of mates, know as Ride West, will be cycling the width of Wales to raise money for Cyclists Fighting Cancer.
As you can see from the video, long distance, self-supported rides are not what the Ride West gang are known for, so this will be a real undertaking. The aim is to raise £5,000 for the charity that enables young cancer sufferers to regain their fitness through cycling.
Check out the daft promo video and the full press release below.
On the 11th of August, myself and a group of friends I’ve made from riding and racing mountain bikes will be riding from Knighton on the English border across the width of Wales all the way to Tywyn.
The ride will be completely unsupported and we will be carrying all of the food and equipment needed to sustain ourselves for 3 days, rough camping as we go. All of this is completely alien to all of us and we’ve never done anything like this before!
The aim is to raise a total of £5,000 for Cyclists Fighting Cancer. We all know this is quite an ambitious target but with your help we are confident this figure can be reached. The ride will be documented on film so you’ll be able to enjoy watching us crash our bikes, get soaked by rain and consume cold rice from bags.
The charity Cyclists Fighting Cancer enables children and young people living with cancer across the UK to regain their physical fitness, strength and confidence by giving them new bikes, adapted trikes, tandems, other equipment and support.
