Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Imogen and Dan are cycling 150miles over 2nd - 3rd June to raise money for the National Maternity Support Foundation. They do great work in campaigning for hospitals and maternity units to stay open and not to close due to underfunding, lack of staff/beds and cutbacks in essential services. They also work to improve maternity bereavement care.

We are following our own 'Jubilympics' route through the South Downs and Kent Wealds visiting icon landmarks on the way. (As its Jubilee weekend and the Olympics soon).

Day 1 - We start at Box Hill in Surrey, which will be the focus of the Olympic road race route. We then cycle down to the coast, past Gatwick airport which many olympians will travel to, through the South Downs and start the costal leg at Shoreham by Sea. From here we will cycle through Brighton and past its famous Piers and Royal Pavilion on past the white chalky cliffs of Newhaven and the famous Seven Sisters cliffs which are often used in films to depict the cliffs of Dover as they are a lot nicer. After reaching Beachy Head (the highest chalk cliff in England) we have a nice downhill and end the day in Eastbourne.

Day 2 - We'll follow the coast to Hastings (of the royal battle fame) before heading inland and over the green steep hills and woodlands of the Wealds. We'll end the day at Royal Tunbridge Wells which seemed quite apt. After getting the train back to Charing Cross station theres still a few miles and landmarks to tick off before arrivng back in Highbury.
