    Three men, three bikes, three days - Riding The Way Of The Roses in support of men's mental health and Alzheimers Research.

    Three riders from STEM Construction are riding from Morecambe on the West coast of Lancashire to Bridlington on the East coast of Yorkshire, to support charities and raise awareness for two important causes.

    Steve Thornley, Nick Lowe and Phill Connell aim to complete the 170 mile ride over a 3-day weekend in October 2022, in aid of ANDYSMANCLUB and Alzheimer's Research UK.

    ANDYSMANCLUB is a men's mental health organisation, meeting at over 100 locations every Monday from 7 to 9pm. On average one man every 2 hours takes his life in the UK. It’s often said a factor is that men don’t talk. That is why Andys Man Club was founded to break down these stigmas, support men struggling with Mental Health issues and lend a hand to suicide prevention. At ANDYSMANCLUB you don’t have to be suicidal or have a mental health problem, the aim is just to get men talking.

    Alzheimer's Research UK is the UK’s leading dementia research charity, dedicated to causes, diagnosis, prevention, treatment and cure. With the help of many supporters, they are making great progress.

    Steve, Nick and Phill decided to undertake this challenge after a conversation at STEM Construction's head office, wondering how to support two causes very close to their hearts. None of them are long-distance cyclists, but as proud Lancastrians they were keen to take on a challenge involving their home county. Many of the largest climbs on this route are on the Lancashire side of the route, before a slightly easier ride through Yorkshire towards Bridlington and some very welcome fish & chips!

    Please support these two fantastic charities and pile on the pressure for us to complete this challenge!

    With huge thanks,

    Steve, Nick & Phill.

      Hello everyone, A quick update for you all. No doubt you were hoping for photos from our ride over the weekend! We had a last-minute change of plan forced upon us. Phill was rushed into hospital 6 days before the ride with a burst appendix. Everything at the hospital went well, but it means he couldn't ride this weekend as planned. So, our ride will now take place 7th-9th October instead! Massive thanks to the accommodation providers who were able to move our bookings. We will be back on our bikes very soon! Steve, Nick & Phill.
