    Story

    During four gruelling days from May 12-15 2017 ‘Team Spirit’ (left-right; Phil, Adrian, Matt, Christian, Andrew, Gary & Nigel) will be mountain biking the challenging 151 mile coast to coast route the hard way - off road - to raise funds towards a new £1.5M swimming pool for The Mendip School, Shepton Mallet and local community. Your support is much appreciated.

    • ABOUT THE MENDIP SCHOOL:

    The Mendip School (www.themendipschool.co.uk) caters for children from 4 through to 19 with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and Speech Language and Communication Needs (SLCN). The school, which opened in 2015, was started by a partnership between a group of local parents and Fosse Way School, a leading special school nearby, in order to allow more young people to access its highly successful model of education.
    If you would like further information then please contact the school office on 01749 838040.

    
"'A swimming pool at The Mendip School will make such a difference to our pupils. Not only providing exercise through specific swimming lessons but also allowing the children to have fun and grow in confidence in a safe environment. The pool will also be available for our local community to use.'" EMILY MASSE, PRINCIPAL

    • ABOUT THE C2C CHALLENGE:

    A challenging off-road coast to coast (C2C) MTB ride over 4 days from 12-15 May 2017 based on a route from Whitehaven to Tynemouth but including miles of remote red and black grade trails and singletrack through the Lake District (incl Honister Pass), North Pennine Moorland and reaching a height of almost 800 metres above sea level! A real test of technical mountain biking skills and stamina.

      Finished! We all agreed that the last route over the Pennines was one of the toughest days cycling ever. 'Winter in May'. Brutal. Exhilarating. 175 miles cycled in total.
