Richard and Leon completed their 147-mile adventure from Blackpool to Scarborough in the day on Saturday 3rd of July. With all types of weather thrown in the mix, it was a long day taking 11hrs 40 mins in total with 9hrs 50 mins of continuous pedaling.
They had support from Jason in the van providing food, water, and dry clothing in between the heavy downpours as well as few shouts of encouragement from the roadside.
Between the group that completed the ride, they have raised almost seven thousand pounds at the time of posting this. Raising funds and awareness to support the amazing Amelia Mae Foundation.
The charity does great work to support children and families affected by Neuroblastoma and more information about the fantastic work they do can be found at https://www.ameliamaefoundation.co.uk/home

The event was organised by Martin Atkinson and our friends at Fortress Energy, with an old Rugby friend in Trevor Goodwin being influential in getting the guys involved.
All in all, it was a challenging day that Leon, Richard, and Jason thoroughly enjoyed and were proud to be a part of. Hopefully we will be involved in more events in the future.
