We will travel un-supported, carrying luggage on the bikes and stop at youth hostels & B&B’s. The ride will be approximately 1700 miles & we have 20 days to complete it in, therefore we will need to average 90 miles a day for almost three weeks!We want to raise at least £1200 for Air Ambulance. This amount is the cost of the average rescue mission the Air Ambulance flies. They do not get any government funding & solely rely on private funding.
I was fortunate enough to be rescued by the Air Ambulance when he had a major crash at a mountain bike event in south Wales in 2007, and have supported their cause ever since. Thanks to the quick response time only achievable by the Air Ambulance, I was transported to life saving treatment within minutes.
