Just Ride Southend to Manchester… One Month To Go!

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.

We will hopefully arrive in Manchester in time to celebrate before a well earned rest and a return journey by minibus and van the next day.

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.

We are all very excited to rise and ride to the challenge. Thank you all so much for your support.
