Starkold are helping to raise money for St Cuthbert’s hospice
because of the fantastic services they provide to patients, families and
carers, free of charge.
Their aim is to improve the quality of life and preserve the dignity of adults in North Durham with life-limiting illnesses.They support and help patients, their families and carers with the provision and maintenance of care in their chosen location.
St Cuthbert’s overall vision is to meet the physical, social, psychological and spiritual needs and wishes of all who need them, at every stage of their journey.
To raise money for this excellent cause, Starkold take part in several cycling events throughout the year...
Starkold’s annual coast 2 coast cycle challenge is happening
1st - 3rd September 2017. The challenge is a leisurely three day event
covering 180 miles of the finest scenery and areas of outstanding natural beauty. We are now going into our 9th year of participating and would like to make it the best yet.
The route is not without some challenging terrain providing some hard climbs,including a couple of cat 1 climbs (the highest of which being over 2,000 feet) but with some basic training and a little willpower it is achievable. Tradition dictates that you start the ride by dipping your back wheel in the Irish Sea and only finish when your front wheel gets a dip in the North Sea at the other end.
We would love your involvement, either by taking part yourself, getting your friends involved, or by contributing a small donation. Hope to see you all there!
