Story

In early 2019, our dear friend Simon Brennan was diagnosed with progressive Motor Neurone Disease. He has thrown himself into raising money for the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation (https://www.myname5doddie.co.uk/), which raises funds for research into the disease and provides financial support for those suffering from MND. Some of Simon's previous fundraising efforts and national press coverage can be seen here:

Now, we have partnered with the great people at Boom Cycle (https://www.boomcycle.co.uk/) who will host a 24 hour spinathon starting at 7pm on the 18th October at their studio in Waterloo. We will have two sets of riders. The competitive teams of six will ride, in pairs and in two hour shifts, unbroken for 24 hours. The non-competitive teams can have a team of as many people as they like up to 24 people doing an hour each! Friends and family are most welcome to support at any time!

Boom Cycle have kindly offered to provide food and refreshments as well as shower facilities, sleeping space and towels. Plus they will host the afterparty once the ride is over!

Come and be a part of something amazing and please give generously to help put an end to this disease once and for all!

If you wish to take part, whether as a team, a small group or an individual, please contact me (07949793807 or ali.craggs@gmail.com) and I will answer any and all of your questions.

If you are interested in being one of corporate sponsors please contact Michael Goodall (on 0019179932857 or at Mrmgoodall@icloud.com) who will be able to provide you with details of our sponsorship packages.

About Boom Cycle:

Not just an indoor cycling studio, Boom Cycle engages riders mentally as well as physically through their unique experience. No numbers, no competition, just fun. With the lights low and a world-class sound system, riders are swept away and immersed into the ultimate 'party-on-a-bike' experience. A programme designed by former model and fitness extraordinaire Hilary Rowland and entrepreneur Robert Rowland with the vision to empower and to be anything but exclusive; there's no pretentiousness, just high fives all round. Their daily rides are led by expert motivators and have been adopted into the daily lifestyle of their Boom'ing community. Boom Cycle caters to all abilities but most importantly is here to encourage you to cut loose from your day and forget your stresses.
