Story

In 2015 a team of cyclists from HMS Sutherland by cycled from Devonport tod the County of Sutherland in pbdvScotland, then back again. This event was a success, it raised awareness and funds for the charity Care after Combat.

Three years on some of the cyclists from the original team plus new members including Veterans that have Served Queen and Country and civilians that support our men and women will cycle the Trafalgar Way consisting of 300 miles (if we don't get lost) over 3 days but less than 72 hours starting on 11th May 2018.

The Trafalgar Way also known as the Pickle Ride has been chosen because of the difficulty and also to re-live the historic route taken by Lieutenant John Richards Lapenotiere in 1805 when he delivered the news to the Admiralty of Nelson's victory and unfortunate death at the Battle of Trafalgar.

We hope that this event being undertaken by 25 participants will be very popular and that you support us on our journey.
