Story

On the 25th August 2021, we lost our best friend, brother and son, Bast, to his brave battle with addiction at the young age of just 21. 

He was so bright and determined to use his experience to help others, so that’s why we’ve decided to raise £12,000 for Yeldall Manor, to cover the cost of seeing one person through their full addiction recovery programme. We miss him beyond words and wish he could be doing this with us, but now we just hope that his story will help someone else who's going through what he did. 

Yeldall Manor is an addiction recovery centre near Reading, UK. For over 40 years they’ve helped men overcome serious drug or alcohol addictions and return to society to live new lives.

Bast never did things by halves, so we’ve decided to cycle a whopping 12,000km - the distance between his two homes in Singapore and Henley-on-Thames in the UK. It’s a big challenge, but we hope you’ll join us and show that his light is still shining all across the world! The challenge starts MAY 1st 2022!
