£11,236raised of £28,800 target by 229 supporters

Weʼre raising £28,800 to support 2 good causes in 2018 by cycling almost 300 miles from London to Paris.

London Borough of Havering, United Kingdom

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

We are 20 average gym members who want to make a change to the lives of others. Cycling almost 300 miles from London to Paris will take hours of dedication in training & preparation. However, this sacrifice is a fraction of what others do each and every day when caring for people who are ill. Help us by donating today and together we can make a difference.

Meet some of the team: Paul Lomas, Alison Bartrip, Barnes & Becky Thorne, Graham Taylor , Heath and Clare Milne, Ian Higgs, Lesley Day-Smith, Mandy Smith, Sally Smith, Liz Darlison, Sophie Roberts, Stephen Piper, Kerry Mullen, David Cappaert, Mark White, Dylan Champion, Lisa Bentley and Lee Carpenter.

There is still time to join and help us raise money for 2 exceptional charities, contact Paul Lomas on 07807 494530 for more information.

FAQ

1. Who is doing the challenge? We are 20 normal gym goers who attend a weekly spin class and want to do something amazing.

2. How far is the ride? Just over 271 miles we shall be cycling 85 miles day 1, 71 miles day 2, 65 miles day 3 and 50 miles Day 4

3. Why £28,800? We want to maximise the amount we give to the two charities. As you can imagine getting 22 people to Paris on bikes will take money in terms of support personnel, medical and mechanical, travel, hotels even shipping the bikes back! Once these costs have been taken out we will be able to help the two causes significantly if we hit this minimum figure of £28,800, but we are aiming for more with your support.

4. Has anyone done it before? Most of the group haven't even got a bike yet! However, 3 people have previously done the challenge. Currently we are busy saving up to buy our bikes in the New Year.

5. What sort of training will you be doing? We shall be training as a group on average 5 days week, the training will be a mixture of cardio, strength and of course road riding.

6. Can I join the challenge? Absolutely we have space for more contact Paul Lomas on 07807 494530 and help us change lives whilst changing yours massively .

    We have now completed our third indoor training session dedicated to this challenge as most of us are spinning 2/3 times a week these sessions are top of our normal training so we are starting to fell the burn in our legs . Some people including myself still haven't got a bike which for me highlights the massive challenge we have selected. Road work starts 11th February this will be weekly on Sundays covering anywhere from 25 miles to 60! Thank you for all your support so far please help us further by passing these messages on.
