Wow, can you believe it? It’s been a whole year since we completed our Just Ride Southend to Manchester cycle!
This was such an amazing achievement that we all look back on with such wonderful and maybe slightly painful memories (for the cyclists!)
For those of you who might not have known us this time last year, volunteers of JRS cycled from Southend to Manchester in a day to raise money. The trip was a total of 250 miles in one day as a relay team, although a few cyclist completed the entire distance!
Our riders included three tandems as well as solo riders, an all female bike, a visually impaired rider and one of our trustees who has Cerebral Palsy.
Simply Cycling (based in Manchester) were our inspiration and mentors from the beginning and as it was our 5th and their 15th anniversary we thought this challenge would be the perfect opportunity to fundraise and celebrate all we have achieved.
In total we raised a total of £4,475.34 with the support of so many kind and generous people, not bad for our first big fundraiser! 😁❤️🚲
