A group of amateur cyclists are riding from Leeds to London, non-stop, over 24 hours to raise money for the Yorkshire and Great North Ambulance Services. The cyclists usually prefer an engine to go with their two wheels, so this is quite the challenge for them!
The route starts at Leeds Town Hall on 15th September, and they will be cycling through the night to arrive at Parliament Square the following day. They will be doing a lap of Donnington Park and Silverstone on the way down - albeit probably more slowly than people usually go round those tracks!
The 2 Wheels group have decided to support the Air Ambulance Services because two of the group have had to use the services previously.
Keiron Gavaghan, one of the riders, was picked up by the Great North Air Ambulance in 2013. Alan Brigg, a close friend of the group, was picked up by the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in 2017 and is still in recovery. Both men are still with us today because of the Air Ambulance Services.
The Air Ambulance services are charities that are 100% funded by donations. The services rescue over 20,000 people per year, and over 40% of the cases are road traffic accidents.
