On the 2nd August 2015 On a hill in Halstead Essex (Brook St) 8am - 8pm Steve and Tony will attempt to break a new World Record for the most feet climbing on a bike in 12 hours on a course in Essex. The current record stands at 9271.2 mtrs so to do this they will need to cycle up the 600meter climb 225 times!
They are doing this 'crazy' challenge to raise awareness for Movistar Rider Alex Dowsett's charity, Little Bleeders. Alex set this up to support young boys who suffer from Haemophilia, a condition he also suffers from but has learnt to not only to live with, but become a professional cyclist. The inherited condition affects the blood's ability to clot which can become life threatening, however with the right treatment and support, haemophiliacs can maintain a normal active lifestyle and need not be wrapped in cotton wool.www.Littlebleeders.com
