Raising money for PROSTATE CANCER UK and Multiple Sclerosis Society

Story

On Sunday 7th of August 2022 at 11.30 Jon and Guy will be starting the infamous London Edinburgh London Cycle Event - over 1500 kilometres (932 miles) to ride between the 2 cities and back in under 125 hours, not surprising it is classed as the UK’s toughest Audax - It's so tough it is only held once every four years!

We are no strangers to the long rides having completed the Super Randonneur series again this year for the second time - completing a 200k (125 miles), 300k (186 miles), 400k (248 miles) and 600k (372 miles) event rides in a season.. we took it one step further this year by both undertaking and completing the 400k's solo around 20 hours each.

So with a few smaller (200k) rides still to go we are nearing the main event.. a very daunting huge distance but felt it was a great opportunity to raise some money and would certainly motivate us in the wee, cold, wet, dark small hours, on a tiny road somewhere in Scotland knowing we were raising money for 2 incredible charities very close to our hearts - Multiple Sclerosis and Prostate Cancer.

Before you donate - one last thought - just think about sitting on your bike saddle for up to 20 hours a day for 5 days!!!.

Thank you - Jon and Guy.
