Story

Lazst year we set out on Friday the 13th to longboard between the Turner Contemporary in Margate, and the Tate Modern in St Ives. We got lost, a lot! At one point Tony the support rider lost Patrick  in Tesco’s…Express! (True story)

All in all the entire trip clocked up a little over 650 miles. We then managed another 400 in 2 fixed sites on the way back (in less than 9 days)

We Raised nearly £3000 pounds for the Pshyciatric Research Trust and attracted interest from Stephen Fry, Status Quo, the Guardian, the One Show and were met by Mark Kermode and the staff of the Tate Modern  in St Ives with the whole thing covered by 3 County Radio stations.  

 

This year Patrick is attempting to skate 2013 miles in a little over 6 weeks! That’s 56 miles a day!! (More than 2 Marathons………… A Day!
