Sea - Wheeliing
60 Days...60 Towns...One Aim!
On 3rd September 2010, a 60 day Round-Britain Bike Ride will commence from the port of Hull and will stop at 60 coastal towns along the route. You can see the route on the map in the image on this page.
Riders will join and leave the ride as they wish, or indeed cycle the whole way, each raising sponsorship for their individual efforts. Local TV, press and radio will follow this adventure and at ports where AoS has a presence, there will be an opportunity for riders to meet visiting seafarers.
The idea for this event came from AoS Trustee David Savage, who a while ago completed a sponsored bike ride. On the 15th November 2008, David rode from Liverpool to Hull, non-stop, on a immense charity bike ride to raise funds for AoS. He rode 215.9 kilometres in a total time of 9 hours and 42 minutes. He reported his average speed was 22.26 kph (13.91mph) but that at one point he even got up to 69.88 kph, but that was down a hill!
This challenge only spiked his enthusiasm more and Sea Wheeling 2010 was conceived.
David himslef will be completing this entire new challange and cycling 60 towns in 60 days.
He invites supporters to pick up the route where they can and join him in this incredible challenge!
