Story

The challenge we have set ourselves is to cycle from Holyhead to Cardiff in a day.

Thats over 210 miles with 9,000ft of climbing. All in one day.

We will be setting off in the early hours of Saturday 18th June, and hope to get back to Cardiff before last orders!

We are raising money for Marie Curie which provides an excellent service at Holme Towers, our local hospice. The ride is in memory of Eric Hodge, one of the founder members of Cardiff Ajax CC, who lost his battle with cancer in December.

One of Eric's achievement was the saving of Maindy Track from redevelopment in the 1980/90s.. Without him we wouldn't have the great facility that we continue to enjoy today. Eric's last big ride was Land's End to John O' Groats in 2009. He did it in two weeks with very little support, and raised over £12,000 for Help for Heroes. He rode his fifty year old steel Baines on this ride and was well into his seventies at that time. He is an inspiration to us all!!

So dig deep and donate now please!!
