We did it!! - see update posts below!
On 4th September Chris and Will are due to leave the Manchester velodrome at dawn and attempt to cycle 220 miles (350 km) down the spine of the country through the Peak District, Midlands and the Chilterns to reach the Olympic velodrome in London by midnight.
As any cyclist can tell you, 220 miles is a massive challenge – the longest stage in last year’s Tour de France was 139 miles/224 km – and the average time for people doing this ride last year was just under 16 hours of cycling!
But it's become clear to us from hearing directly from parents whose children have autism, living with autism is a bigger challenge by far. And they've told us that the work AaA does – including running a school for autistic children and a college for young adults – is making a real difference to their children's lives and prospects.
So we are proud to be raising funds for AaA. Please help us achieve our £1500 sponsorship target and for more information about AaA please see https://www.ambitiousaboutautism.org.uk/our-work
