I know we’ve been here before but this is the last time, I promise.
So with that in mind we are bowing out of our hat trick of rides with an added day in the saddle. There’s nothing like an extra 70 miles of sore legs and backside to really bring the challenge back to life!
Yes this time instead of starting at Barnsley we will be riding out from Nottingham and heading North to join the other cyclists starting in Barnsley.
Also this year Team Ding Dings have joined forces with the family of Paul Dear to become Team Dear North.
Paul and his daughter Laura took part in 2017 after Paul had only recently finished treatment for Prostate Cancer.
We chatted over a beer or two in Amsterdam and his story really hit a nerve. Sadly Paul’s Cancer came back and he passed away three days before this years ride. Laura and her brother Adam took to the ride despite their immediate grief and completed the event in their fathers honour.
It’s our privilege to be able to represent Team Dear and we only hope we can do justice to Paul and his family with our efforts both on and off our bikes.
We are ramping up the fundraising with amongst other things planned static cycles at local supermarkets. Also we are looking for local businesses to add their logos to our shirts and in return will we give them exposure through our many media outlets. See our website for more info and please get in touch.
Thanks for reading, thanks for donating and thanks for helping us spread awareness of this horrible disease.
