A team of volunteers at Just Ride Southend have taken on the mammoth challenge of cycling from Southend to Manchester in a day! They have all been putting in loads of hard work and training over the last couple of months.
Simply Cycling (www.simply-cycling.org) were our inspiration and mentors from the very beginning (2014). It is safe to say we have had an incredible journey over the last 5 years. We would like to celebrate our 5th and their 15th birthday this year.
We are completing the 250 miles cycle in one day as a relay team. If we use all the daylight hours we would need to average 15mph to achieve our goal. Not Tour de France speeds but still a very real challenge on roads that are open to traffic.
Our number will include three tandems as well as solo riders. The tandems will include an all female bike, a visually impaired rider and one of our trustees who has Cerebral Palsy.
